Politicians they are disappointing creatures. Theresa May, her first statement setting out the aims of her administration, further illustrating the issue. Move on to spring 2019, 39% of the cabinet are privately educated in contrast to 9% of the shadow cabinet and the Lords has actually declined in terms of representing the wider public with an 8% rise in privately educated members under Cameron's and May's administration. Labour's populist rhetoric is little better than the Conservatives empty rhetoric here. The worst of it is, all parties know we have an issue and know that the unequal society we live in is not good for the long term health of the country. Yet the situation grows worse despite the hot air and rhetoric from all the main parties.
