Thread Name: BS: meritocracy dead in British Politics?
Subject: BS: meritocracy dead in British Politics?
From PM Wilson to Johm Major we had a government of the meritocracy.
Now again, Eton, Oxbridge and Spad is the route to British politics.
This latter ascent roughly mirrors the ascent of comprehensives.
What went wrong?
Posh and Posher.Class and Politics in the UK

I am interested in other's views. What is it that Grammar schools offered that is lacking in comprehensives? Or is there another explanation that modern politics is dominated private schooling and Oxbridge?
