This is what our Prime Minister is advocating, though she covers it over with a smokescreen of faux-reasonability.
By claiming that Britain will be a meritocracy, what she is actually saying is that those who grow up without the advantages of connections, financial stability, and the best education money can buy, will not be supported by their government.
She is saying that if we are unable to get on in life, it is our fault, and not the fault of a warped system that still cares more about who your father was and what your postcode is, than your actual potential.
She is advocating an 'in it for yourself' attitude. She is suggesting there are no barriers in British society to those from poorer backgrounds, when this is blatantly untrue.
She may talk prettily about supporting hard-working people, but what she has actually done is throw us all under the bus.
And somehow she has the cheek to come out with policies which actively discriminate against non-British-citizens, including our doctors and medical staff.
