Tory candidate for Newark tries to cover up his privileged upbringing and wealth

The Conservative candidate for Newark has been accused of hiding his wealth and private education from voters to try and avoid getting a reputation as a Tory toff.

Robert Jenrick and his wife Michal own two £2m+ houses in London and a £1m+ mansion in the country. His wife earns half a million a year working for an American law firm and they can afford to rent a house in Newark that they don't even live in just so he has an address in the constituency. Jenrick's CV says that he is state primary school educated which is a bit of an odd thing to say ... unless you're trying to skirt round the fact you went to a £13k a year private school of course!
