Protester chief was pupil with Tony Blair kids
THE leader of the anti-eviction protest at Dale Farm went to school with the children of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, The Sun can reveal.
Jake Fulton, 22, is the son of two respected academics — and studied at Cambridge University.
He was known as Jacob Wills when he attended London Oratory School.
It is one of the UK's best state schools, and Mr Blair's sons Euan and Nicky and daughter Kathryn are all former pupils.
A source said Jake was a year below Kathryn, now 23, and they would have shared a common room as sixth formers.
Despite his privileged background, he changed his name and is now spokesman for Dale Farm Solidarity.
He is also awaiting trial accused of obstructing police during student protests in February.
Other protesters at the camp include a 66-year-old aristocrat and a Tory-voting antiques dealer.
Posh Susanna Mitchell-Cotts, daughter of a baronet, threatened to chain herself to the barricades.
She said: "When I saw what was happening on TV I felt so strongly about it that I had to come down. We're all anarchists now!"
Antiques dealer Olivia Boland, 56, said: "I'm a Tory voter but on this they should have demonstrated moral courage."
Travellers' leaders last night asked the protesters to leave the site.
