Abstract

In ‘Posh and Posher: Why Public School Boys Run Britain’, Andrew Neil warned that public school boys and Oxbridge graduates are taking over politics once more – but is there any truth to the story? Stephen Crone argues that, in fact, politics is not becoming more socially exclusive, but neither is the traditional entrenchment of privilege on the wane and indeed it has proved to be remarkably resilient throughout the post-war period.
