  • 54% of Conservative MPs elected in the 2010 general election attended fee-paying schools
  • The figure is higher than rival political parties – with 40% of Liberal Democrat MPs, and 15% of Labour MPs privately educated
  • In the UK, 7% of the school population attend private schools
  • 38% of Conservative MPs were educated at Oxford or Cambridge University

Can you believe that out of 7% of the population who attended private school make up 54% of the Tory Party, so much for Parliament being reflective of society.

I am suprised though that only 38% were Oxbridge educated.
