Janet Street-Porter cites the Sutton Trust’s Elitist Britain report in a column for the Independent.

“The Sutton Trust looked at 5,000 leading figures in public life and found that 59 per cent of senior civil servants, 65 per cent of senior judges, and 43 per cent of news editors and broadcasters went to public school.

At a time when the public say politicians aren’t to be trusted, we desperately need parties to stand for causes we can relate to, that will bring about positive change and create a better Britain. One simple way to create a fairer society is to offer the same standard of education, properly resourced, to all.”
