  • Hi all decision makers in the party. Please can we select some normal people to represent us. There are far too many young wealthy white men who have been to public school. I’d like to vote for a middle aged Mum or a guy who didn’t make it to Uni. We need real people who live the somewhat stressed and messy lives that the rest of us live and can relate to real life.

  • Jane Lo, well said. You are absolutely right. Public schools are attended by only around 7% of the population but a far higher percentage of Liberal Democrat MPs attended public schools.
    The other 93% of the population offers a pool of talent, experience, knowledge and idealism that the party badly needs in its current state of almost terminal decline.

    What counts as wealthy?

  • Max Wilkinson. One definition of wealthy would be —“having enough money to send your children to Public School”

    In today’s ‘food bank Britain’ some people might define wealthy as having enough money to eat properly when your benefits have been ‘sanctioned’.

    Sadly seems pretty academic if the latest public opinion polls are to be believed
