I read Ruth Kelly in the Guardian a week ago, mending fences with the faithful in her Fabian lecture. She noted that since the 1960s social mobility had reduced in Britain, and that what your parents did for a living is more important now than it was then. She didn't seem to notice that it was then that the comprehensive scheme began.

Snafu at Not Proud Of Britain has noticed, too.
