Subject: RE: BS: meritocracy dead in British Politics?
Back in the 70s when me and my mates were involved in bands and youth theatre...
We fancied a group of girls who were sisters of Millfield boys..

The boys were cocky litle dicks who we didn't think were too bright.
At that time our rebuff to their egotistcal sense of superiority was..

"We got to Grammar School because of our own innate better than average intelligence..
You only went to Millfield because of your family's affluence and contacts..."

Yeahh.. accepted.. we were also arrogant young pricks to some extent...
