    7% of pupils are being privately educated, so that means they need now to be catered for in the state sector somehow, how are they going to pay for that?

    the two local private schools to me are 80-85% BAME (hate that label), most parents are either 1st / 2nd generation immigrants from commonwealth countries

    disproportionate amount are also doctors / GPs / Dentists / Nurses etc

    wonder how that profile fits with labour abolishing privilege

    They want to do something about inequality. And many will agree with them.

    Having lived in a communist country for the first few decades of my life, I can assure you the party elite will still have privileged education, it's just a question of giving bribes to the right people and doing favours for them

    to do that they only need to oblige such establishments to provide free scholarships, including social funding, for those who are academically qualified. This is how the Uni system used to work. My cousin is a PhD and he paid not a penny for it. His fees were paid and he was given a grant, enough for him to live on during term time.

    absolutely.

    The likes of Diane Abbot, would clearly benefit from this policy.

    Both my parents came from literal slum areas. I mean total deprivation. Passing the 11+ got them into grammar, uni and professions. The middle classes who come up with these grand visions for socially just education never see the benefits of selection as their kids will usually come out the other side having done OK.

    Anyway, time to go get Little Lord Fauntleroy from the independant.

    The result will be lots of happy lawyers, and more posh kids for the yoof of Britain to kick the tulip out of.
    Seems unlikely, or the headline would be about banning private schools entirely.
