White Van Man is a Hammer


wareA West Ham fan caused  Shadow Attorney General Emily Thornberry to resign yesterday after she tweeted a picture of his  his White Van together with three England flags – one of which included the West Ham crest in Rochester.

Hammers fan Dan Ware, the father of four who lives in the house she photographed, condemned the out-of-touch Labour politician, declaring: ‘She’s a snob.’

Mr Ware who works in the motor trade said Thornberry ‘should have asked me first’ before taking the picture of his three-bedroom home, which he bought with wife Maria.

He was not aware there was a by election, but voted Conservative at the last general election and has never voted Labour.
