Subject: RE: BS: meritocracy dead in British Politics?
The BIG punishment we feared most was "expulsion"..
which would mean being sent back down to our local estate Secondary Modern,
where old primary school mates we had to leave behind now hated us for becoming 'posh snobs'...

That fear was always there when sent to the headmaster's office for fighting..

Fortunately all I ever got from the head was a severe telling off and warnings...
He was firm but fair..

What we had to beware though was arbitrary sneaky smacks to the back of our heads
with a text book from the Maths/Games teacher...
