Rayner hit back at the comments not once, but twice.
In a statement after their appearance in PMQs, Rayner said: “My advice to the deputy prime minister is to cut out the snobbery and brush up on his opera.
“The Marriage of Figaro is the story of a working-class woman who gets the better of a privileged but dim-witted villain.”
She added: “Judging by his own performance today, Dominic Raab could learn a lesson about opening up the arts to everyone, whatever their background.”
\u201cDominic Raab won\u2019t approve but I did indeed go the opera last week (it cost me \u00a362).\n\nTom Eisner, a working-class lad from Buxton near where I grew up kindly invited me. He\u2019s been playing violin at Glyndebourne for 36 years.\n\nNever let anyone tell you you\u2019re not good enough. \ud83c\udfbb\u201d
