Politicians should practise what they preach

29 Jan

This is a copy of a letter which I sent to the Radio 4 PM programme today. I have never yet had a letter of mine mentioned on the programme, but there is  always a first time! I sincerely hope that Mr Clegg does the right thing and chooses a state school for his son. Oh and it had better not be a grammar school either…. But I’ll save that rant for another day.

I am commenting on the report yesterday about the possibility of Nick Clegg sending his oldest son to an independant school; this was following his recent assertion that private education is ‘corrosive for our society and damaging to our economy.’  He says that he is a father first and a politician second. Well, I say what is the difference? Political views stem from one’s personal views, It is as simple as that. I do not blame politicians for having themselves attended private schools – most people do not have a choice in their own education. But they do have a choice about the education of their own children.
