    A few MPs dangling from lampposts pour encourager les autres would be no bad thing.
    Does that count for rabid leavers in constituencies that voted remain? Raab, Howey and Redwood would be a nice trio to go

    Absolutely. Bring it on.

    Mind you, if all the Remain MPs in Leave constituencies and all the Leave MPs in Remain constituencies got it at the same time, I know which the bigger pile of bodies would be.

    The real point is good breeding, I think. The idea being that if parents, let us say, are well-made enough to arrange decent billets at top educational establishments for their brood, however they do it, then that ought to count for something. Ought to count for alot, in fact. It strongly suggests that they and theirs are of the right sort, regardless of the kids perhaps all being thick ****s.

    The acceptance and/or attendance at a good school is the thing, rather than the performance once there. Or even before and after.

    Much of what we laughingly call education consists of box-ticking exercises and is in and of itself no proof of intelligence whatsoever.

    Oh yes - well aware of that

    Well, yes, but that's because MPs are mostly intelligent and well educated and as we know, well educated people voted overwhelmingly to Remain.

    I shall say no more.

    Different matter entirely. A vote was held and the result is in; not liking that result is no reason not to credit it
