I've always marvelled at the way we, the 93% of the population who went to state schools, are so sanguine about the utter domination of every sphere of our lives by the 7% that received an elite education. Given that the principle qualification for attending an elite school is that your parents have lots of money it seems unlikely this 7% truly represent the best and the brightest. So I thought: what if they were a visible ethnic minority? Would we mind then?

So let's put on the special sunglasses and maybe we might just realise what's really going on.
