Sorry. Not buying. As if having a good education automatically disqualifies. And on the other side as if having had a relatively mediocre education qualifies eg Corbyn. At least the Hard Brexiteers understand this with their support of Rees-Mogg. The hypocrisy is trying to stick the "elite" tail on the EU donkey. Most of this labelling whether from right or left is just populist nonsense.

Just because their parents could afford to send their sprogs to a expensive school does not mean they are any better than a kid from Brixton Comp.

Try not to confuse the difference between "better' and "better-off". And while you are thinking about that, consider all the Labour voting parents who use their financial clout to move into catchment areas for better performing schools.

Brexit is portrayed as a rebellion by the common man against "elites", yet it is led by those that attended the most "elite" school in the UK. Farage was also privately educated. A bit of propaganda to get the commoner votes ... and they went along with it like Stalin's "useful idiots".

Too much chips on shoulders on display around here against private education. No monopoly on educational background on the Brexiteer side. You might as well beat up the anti-Brexit side with that stick.

You are confusing Labour voters with the lower class Tories snobs who can not afford public school fees, many Labour voters are in social housing and can not move that easy...

I think you're a touch over-sensitive about this subject? I have no issue with private education, the irony for me is the portrayal of the opposition as elites, by people who are elites themselves.

I'm a sensitive type of guy. As for portrayals, both sides playing that populist game.
