Angela Rayner sparks debate over ‘anti-Etonian prejudice’ amid ‘scum’ row
The indy100 says Deputy Labour leader Angela Rayner has sparked debate over “anti-Etonian prejudice” after her “scum” comment on Saturday night.
Rayner made headlines when, speaking of Conservatives, she said: “We cannot get any worse than a bunch of scum, homophobic, racist, mysoginistic, absolute pile …of banana republic…Etonian…piece of scum.”
Eton College costs almost £45,000 per year and since first opening its doors in 1440 by King Henry VI, it counts 20 prime ministers amongst its alumni, including Boris Johnson.
Eton is also the alma mater of the current Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, writer George Orwell, and adventurer Bear Grylls.
