Education, Education, Education

Remember the calls of 'toff' and 'posh' issued by various labour politicians throughout the campaign and before? The following is a list of labour MPs who had the benefit of a private education.

Few of us choose the school we go to, but we choose the school our children go to.
You say that many of those listed send their children to private schools. Surely it's only those who deserve criticism.

I disagree Hamish. These are labour MPs who continually insult those of their peers in other parties who went to private schools.

Pot and kettle.

Nice list of hypocrites but I do agree with Hamish that a list of Labour MPs, especially those above, who send their children to privileged schools would be interesting.

Actually banned, I looked for one last night after Hamish's comment but had no joy. I thought I'd seen one somewhere but that was quite some time ago.

Will keep looking.
