           The British establishment has been dominated by privileged parasites from Oxford and Cambridge universities since away back to the 1700’s. It seems that to be Prime minister of the UK you need to have attended one or other of these citadels of the class system. From Robert Walpole 1721-1742 Eton College- Cambridge, to Boris Johnson 2019-?

Benenden School – £39,372
