I agree that it would be better if fewer politicians went to fee-paying schools, both because it would be nice for Parliament to better reflect the life paths of constituents, and because I want to seize on an opportunity to decrease the value-added of fee-paying schools. But the 2019 intake of Tories should be sufficient to demonstrate that 'not having gone to Eton' is not sufficient to pursue policies that expand welfare provision; the proportion of Tories who went to fee-paying schools is down to 41%*, the lowest it has been since people started counting (down from 73% in 1979), but the attacks on the social safety net don't diminish.

*To be fair, this is still huge - only 7% of the wider population go to fee-paying schools.

There are 10 PMs not from private educated schools. They are;

May, Brown, Major, Thatcher, Callaghan, Wilson, Heath, Macdonald, Lloyd George, Bonar Law

Interesting how most are fairly influential PMs

Where are those figures from Hanoi? It just says 'the proportion of tories'. Does that mean party membership? MPs? Cabinet members?

From here: https://researchbriefings.files.parliament.uk/documents/CBP-7483/CBP-7483.pdf

Education section begins on p12.

EDIT: Sorry, to answer your actual question - proportion of MPs.

Ta. 

I'm going to go out on a limb here by suggesting that the figure for de pfeffel's cabinet is somewhat higher.  😆

What’s the betting Hancock has gone and got a tattoo of the word ‘unprecedented’, moronic scumbag uses it at every opportunity.
