And so it has come out that Shami Chakrabarti sent her son first to a prep school then on to prestigious Dulwich College. Both institutions feature entrance exams and fees (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3839975/Shami-Chakrabarti-embroiled-new-education-row-emerges-sent-son-18-000-prep-school.html).
She joins other people of the Left who oppose grammar schools but sent their own sprogs to selective, exclusive schools: Polly Toynbee, Seumus Milne, Diane Abbot and Harriet Harman. For Toby Young, it's how such a decision reflects on their credibility, not the blatant hypocrisy, that he has an issue with (http://www.spectator.co.uk/2016/10/sorry-shami-chakrabarti-but-those-school-fees-are-a-waste-of-money/). For me, it's the blatant hypocrisy.
What is it with these people?
How can Shami Chakrabarti have the nerve to continue opposing grammar schools after what she's done?
If they believe in normal state comprehensives, why can't they send their own brats to them?
Why do they insist on forcing their opinions on the rest of us but exempting their own children?
