It emerged last week that Baroness Chakrabarti’s son won a place at the £18,000-a-year Dulwich College in south London after sitting a tough entrance exam.
Critics say it shows she believed selective education is fine for those who can pay for it – but not for parents who cannot afford it.

Maybe it's Moët 🍾🍾🍾

These Lefties are full or horse shit and it's just another reason why the working class will never vote corbyn government

They want to perscribe the medicine but won't take it themselves

In other words private schools and Grammers are not for proles like us but for them it's ok

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

I was brought up by parents who applied their socialist principles to my education, and I resent them for it. I could have had a better and happier school experience if they had put my welfare ahead of socialism's needs.

It's horse shit these lefties fuck off to some part of London with a pizza express and waitrose.

Pop there kids in a fucking private school and tell us all State schools are awsome and grammars and private schools are not fucking needed

So what?? What she does with her kids is her own business. At least she has a job to be really proud of and sets a good example to her kid in terms of how to live life.

Ps do you work for the Daily Mail ?

It says here he's at Dulwich College. Is that incorrect?

(course that is the Torygraph so who knows ... couldn't find mention of it in the Guardian)

Smidgenpigeon Sun 09-Oct-16 20:10:48

She's a hypocritic.

Totally agree.

Smidgenpigeon Sun 09-Oct-16 20:11:22

Hypocrite even.

ClaudiaNaughton Sun 09-Oct-16 20:12:23

Well, Diane Abbot did the same.

Thefishewife Sun 09-Oct-16 20:13:34

No but I am a voter and like don't like my so lists tipsy on champagin

If you think state schools are fab but don't try and convince me that state schools are good when you won't even put your child in one

I will have a grammar school thanks

ClaudiaNaughton Sun 09-Oct-16 20:14:29

Don't think the Guardian would mention it somehow.

I think that it is problematic when politicians don't live by their own standards. However, ultimately what matters is the job they do, not the life they lead. Where SC's son goes to school isn't exactly going to impact her performance as shadow AG (which I think she's going to do a great job at!). Plus, regarding schools, there are TWO parents making a decision about it after all, and although it's a bit convenient that she says it's her ex who wants her DS to go there, it's also not implausible that he would want this.

myownprivateidaho Sun 09-Oct-16 20:15:36

Also OP frankly your posts make you sound as if you've been on the champers.

Smidgenpigeon Sun 09-Oct-16 20:15:53

Diane Abbot is a hypocrite and smug.

Thefishewife Sun 09-Oct-16 20:16:44

Exactly

And fucking jermery corbyn

And Ruth Kelly and Harriet Harman

Also jermery corbyns Aids children attend tiffin

I'm a rich leftie. I won't send my kids to private school, or tutor them through a grammar school exam; they'll go to our local comprehensive, which is where I went.

I don't believe a parent's wealth should be the primary determiner of a child's academic success, I don't believe in two-tier systems, and I don't believe in patronising scholarships for one or two bright kids from poor backgrounds.

Anyway.

Some lefties are full of shit. Some people are full of shit.

And some people have the intellectual capacity to see that using one individual, from a fucking huge and diverse group, to tar them all is pretty thick.

HTH.

Waffles80 Sun 09-Oct-16 20:18:10

Have you been drinking?

Thefishewife Sun 09-Oct-16 20:18:58

What matters is what you really do in private and the disparity of what you do in public

So the MP who try's to criminalise sex workes wile useing them
Or the MP who try's to block grammar and private schools while popping there children in one

Madbengalmum Sun 09-Oct-16 20:19:49

Hypocrites, the lot of the leftie loonies.

Thefishewife Sun 09-Oct-16 20:21:13

Mr Corbyn’s chief spin doctor, Seamus Milne, sent his son to the Tiffin School in Kingston upon Thames and his daughter Anna to the nearby Tiffin Girls’ School.

It always amazes me that people argue hypocrisy is ok as 'you have to do what is right for your family'. It is not ok and never will be. If you tell others that something is not right, you cannot choose it for yourself.

Laniakea Sun 09-Oct-16 20:26:19

there we are! I should've looked more carefully

www.theguardian.com/education/2016/oct/09/shami-chakrabarti-grammar-schools-segragation-theresa-may-11-plus

That one doesn't say Dulwich College but does agree it is an £18,000 a year private school HTH

MarriedinMaui Sun 09-Oct-16 20:26:47

I don't think it's being a hypocrite at all. You have to use the system that exists. I think private schools are the biggest obstacle we have to social mobility and I wish there was a way to get rid of them completely...but under the current system I would still consider sending my child to one because why should they suffer for my principles? Sacrificing your child's future (hypothetically...I'm not saying sending them to a comp would be doing that) isn't going to change the system.

I actually think it's more hypocritical when politicians say "oh yes of course I sent them to state school" but it is actually some niche central London impossible to get into place which is a world away in demographic and results from your local comp.
