Of course, that's assuming that going private is better than the state system. My considered opinion is that it's not. That people from private schools get better jobs is, to my mind, a condemnation of our social and political system, not an argument in favour of private schools. Anyway, it's clear that people who go to public schools and Oxbridge have way too much influence on Westminster. Just my view.
I think you've proved my point - it's all about your political and social views. To me it shows an absolutely reprehensible lack of representation of large swathes of the population, but what do I know?
Actually, muddyfunster, I tend to think the other way - forums are rather like speaking to people face to face, so calling someone inoffensive a twat when you first meet them seems to me rather, er, offensive. I'm wondering what sort of language is appropriate, if twat is appropriate for the OP, for someone who comes on here and really is a twat - a racist, for example, or, er, a twat.
