I agree with what you are saying (I worked directly to Brig Aldridge in the Falklands - mega bloke!). My point though was some supposedly working class leaders I have come across in my life so far are even further up their own backsides than some of the Eton/Harrow types you encounter in life. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of upper class personalties like that too but sometimes power corrupts all.
I personally don't care if our leaders are from Eton School or Cansfield High School (Ashton-in-Makerfield). It is what they do in office, which counts and having been an avid reader of these political threads, it looks like nobody is happy with any levels of our political class. Wouldn't it be refreshing if people in power spoke truthfully rather than through spin?! I had this discussion at breakfast this morning. We all agreed no politician would last five mins if they were truthful!
Going back to your list, if I was to choose one, I'd go with William Hague. I'd actually love to buy a house just north of Richmond if I could ever save up a large enough deposit plus I'd love to quiz him about British Foreign Policy etc.
Richmond, (N Yorks) is a dislocated part of the Home Counties, can't really be called proper Yorkshire
I couldn't care if the cabinet were full of the entire Boris and Cameron class of the Bullingdon Club as long as they did a decent job (my subjective opinion of a decent job, obviously!). I should have added Boris to that list as I'd love to have a few beers with him. I utterly can't stand Nigel Farage's politics but I think it'd be a cracking night out with him, Boris, Charlie Kennedy and Ken Clarke.
