  • As a former Lancashire lad who was brought up in a tiny three bed council house with my parents and five siblings, "bring back grammar schools", I say. Neither of my parents went to uni, and I was the only child in my family who did. It was the 11-plus and grammar school that did it for me. My brothers and sisters all had to go to the new comprehensive school where they had to study with a bunch of disinterested and disruptive thickos. I ended up as a partner in a respected City firm so didn't do so badly.
