FOR SHAME! Unforgivably, MPs and members of the Lords are better educated than the public at large, we learn from reporting over the weekend (Times, BBC). Over 27 per cent of MPs and 42 per cent of Lords were educated at Oxbridge, and even worse, nearly a third of MPs and two-thirds of Lords at public schools. Sutton Trust chairman Sir Peter Lampl compares the findings to 'apartheid'.

You say "better educated," the article says "privately schooled"--that's not the same thing, is it?
