Why our politicians are mediocre

Embracing mediocrity

We all know of the dominance of those educated in private schools. This is especially true of politicians in the upper levels of our government. This, for me, is indicative of Britain’s stagnant levels of social mobility. Labour activists would like to abolish private schools, and that would help. But a better way to disrupt the elite self-perpetuation of politicians. And this would be to simply target Oxford and Cambridge.
