    you may not be rich compared to other people at your school, but you are rich pal. the same way i'm not rich compared the the rest of the UK, but in terms of the world im in the top 2 or 3%
    My dad gets free school fees with the company he works for but his actually income wouldn't pay for public school fees. I understand that we are more well off then most but the point i was trying to make was that just because you go to a public school doesn't mean that your posh, rich and aren't suitable to be a politician.

    What an enlightened contribution
    Everything they do is influenced by the richest few in the country just to try and keep them onside. The way they are governing things at the moment is just to benefit the richest in the country creating an even more individualist society rather than collectivist.

    Should people who went to public school actually be allowed to become politicians? They were born rich, what do they actually know about the way the world works?

    Hint: there's only one correct answer and that's no
    The only correct answer on here is NO to the question as to whether someone like you should be allowed to vote.

    Don't need another shot petal. The premise you put forth is ludicrous and based upon ignorance, nothing more and nothing less.

    Human beings are not ants. No one outside of a few lunatics wants to be part of an ant colony. Human nature is not collectivist. Personal liberty is more important than being a mindless cog in a machine.

    You talk as if you've just had a GCSE politics lesson at school, using the terms 'individualist' and 'collectivist' as if they're synonymous with 'bad' and 'good', respectively.

    Yes, you're right. I am a Conservative voter. Can I take a guess that you think Jeremy Corbyn is an inspiring and towering political figure who will lead this country to its next golden epoch?

    Jeremy Corbyn isn't amazing but he isn't that bad. SNP are the ones who have my vote.

    Is that because they have a good record in government, or because they're fashionable?

    What about Britain as a whole? Or is Scottish power the only thing that matters? It has hints of Nazism
