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.
Then he went to London Met and became a roadman obvs

I may be completely misunderstanding the distinction between state and private schools but surely the state can’t seize assets which are privately owned by these schools?

Who the hell cares about history? Might as well bring back the slave trade
What a foolish and ignorant comment. Many people do thank you very much. 🙃

This policy makes no sense politically and strategically. Politically, it leads to further regulation and outright Communist policies (redistributing property). Strategically, it will only be supported by hard-left Marxists who would vote Labour anyway.

This could be good though, if they invest in boosting the quality of public schools then everyone wins and it will be an equal playing field. Although I don’t see them doing this anytime soon because they promise the world and deliver nothing.

Labour's policy is incoherent rage.

That makes it hard sensibly to comment on it.

Most independent schools are not private in that sense. You can't say a charity owns Eton. The charity is Eton, and charities are public bodies. Governments can and have interfered in how charities are run.

It’s ridiculous
I doubt it to be honest, it sounds like the usual political posturing which entails little more than a rebrand

Well most likely only the privately educated would express outrage at this news (as I'm sure there are many on TSR.) Us commoners couldn't really give a monkeys.

It's easy for Corbyn and pals to try remove this when they've already been to private schools and become millionaire's themselves. It's easy to be a socialist when you're in the 1% funnily enough.

Labour supporters cite the Finnish system as a reason for abolishing private schools. This comparison is problematic, it sounds like they are trying to fit a square peg in a round hole.

And of course if they're not it's "politics of jealousy", rather than admitting that the current system is failing, killing us and the planet for the lowest price possible

I think being able to afford an average £17,000 a year per child on private education, means you're hardly a struggling family.

I don't see why some kids should get a privileged start just because mummy and daddy can dig deep into their pockets.

Merit, not money.
