They say labour is for the working class citizens and I suppose this fits that category. But I think this is extreme. Public schools are a part of British history and culture, look at the likes of Wellington College, Harrow or Stowe. Some silly old fool can’t erase pieces of British culture and history. He’s worse than Trump. Social class will always exist, especially in the U.K. If parents want to invest in their children’s futures then they should be rightfully allowed to do so.

Exactly. There are parents who work so hard to make sure their kids go to good schools. In many cases it’s not even about privilege, it’s about priorities and hard work. Parents make huge sacrifices to get their kids into some of these schools.

Also, having the private school system helps raise standards all round, even for state schools.

I’m never voting labour again.

Me neither. I find it quite hard to believe that I would have once wanted to when they pledged to make the patron saint days a national holiday. It’s a shame that in the U.K. no one really cares about them, there are no national events or anything like that. In France on Bastille Day there are huge celebrations, and Americans care more about St Patrick’s day than the Irish do!

Corbyn & his commie pals would ruin this country; we would end up worse than Albania.

They also promised to abandon ofsted and legalise all drugs including heroine and cannabis to decriminalise the working classes. Sadiq Khan is literally the only sensible one there who wants to get things done

Corbyn went too far when he said borscht and sauertkraut should replace fish and chips on state school dinner menus :mob:

A fair enough policy would have been to reduce the tax breaks private schools receive. This is just pure idiocy thought up by someone with Neely for brains

If they're lucky the little ones get to share a pig's head for lunch. If they're unlucky they get one each

School assemblies with compulsory worship will be replaced with marching round the playground whilst singing the Red Flag. at the end they have to kiss the feet of the Diane Abbot statue which will be installed in the foyer of every school.

At this point he's not working for the working class, he's just working against the upper class. It doesn't achieve anything good for either end

Private schools don't even perform that much better than state schools

Who the hell cares about history? Might as well bring back the slave trade

I wonder if they will lose voters to this policy. Lib Dem is already up their ass.
I think this is a horrible policy that is not thought out at all.

I laughed when I read it. Simply unelectable.
I was most impressed by their claim they were going to seize private property.
They dont know just how much they scare anyone else except the far left.

Al;so scrapping oftsed which inspects schools to replace it with another organisation that inspects schools. Go figure.

Is this a joke or something. Must be total BS as most politicians including Labour send their kids to private schools. Corbyn went to a private school too.
