Are you bring unreasonable to have a thought? No.

Hmm. Clearly you didn't have the benefit of a good education. Either that you're on glue, or you're pissed.

Come back tomorrow and try again.

so? Private education (on a huge academic scholarship) also "produced" (although it isn't a sausage machine, people make choices) my OH, who is one of the best people I know.

@Nataleejah Private education also produced Jeremy Corbyn. I'm not keen on it myself, but your point is what?

I get you, OP. Only 7% of the population go through private education, but they are over-represented in government and institutions.

Personal opinion; since so many in government came from such similar educations/backgrounds, there will be a lack of diversity of viewpoints which lends itself to groupthink. Initial ideas are not sufficiently challenged / debated / honed / developed. Hence bad ideas that went unchallenged etc. get implemented.
