How Labour keeps its core voters core

Am I the only one not to be shocked by a report published yesterday explaining that the abolition of "elitist" Grammar schools across the country has resulted in reduced social mobility? Congratulations to Labour and the left-wing educational establishment for reducing social mobility and ensuring that their core voters remain their core voters in the future.

The Economist predicted this when they did their top 100 jobs survey. The 2002 one had noticably fewer ex-private school people in top jobs than the 1972 one. Their prediction was that the 2022 one will see a return to the private school bias. In other words, social mobility was a blip caused by the brief availability of top quality education to anyone who could pass the exams.
