Class war or what?

The Telegraph issues a correction to an earlier article which had claimed that Peter Bradley, parliamentary private secretary to Alun Michael, had admitted that the hunting ban was about class war:

[...]we stated that Peter Bradley had admitted in the Sunday Telegraph that
the hunting ban was part of the class struggle. This is incorrect. In his article [...] Mr Bradley had commented that 'the struggle over the Bill' was not just about animal welfare and personal freedom, it was class war'. We regret any misunderstanding.

Er, I'm not sure I see the distinction here. Can anyone explain?
