In defence of wealth

Oh yes, Sir Alan Duncan, man of the people.  The Independent reports:
It would be easy to suggest Mr Duncan, with his everyman experiences of private school, Oxford and advising on Yemeni oil deals for £600 an hour, may himself know nothing of the outside world as familiar to 99.9999 per cent of its seven billion inhabitants, but Duncan is no snob. “I talk to my postman every day,” he once told a television interviewer, looking only momentarily horrified when the follow-up question was “What is his name?” (“Errr, I just call him postie,” he said, the blood sprinting from his face as if chased down the drive by an angry rottweiler.)
