Talking about the current schisms in the Socialist Workers party, Wheen 
points out that the party's leader Alex Callinicos, grandson of the 2nd 
Lord Acton, was educated at a top private school and another senior 
leader, Charlie Kimber, is the Old Etonian son of a baronet. Also 
prominent in the brouhaha has been Dave Renton, an Old Etonian barrister 
related to a former Tory chief whip: "It sometimes reads like a 
conversation between Old Rugbeians and Old Etonians about the main 
British Trotskyist party. It's quite bizarre."
