Did anyone see Sophie Rayworth and 'the other one' laughing yesterday as they read out the latest house-price-rise story on the six o'clock news... The only thing they could bring themselves to mention - between smirks - was the plight of 'Key Workers'

Key workers is a euphemism for people who vote labour.
