My sympathy to the current pupils of Acland Burghley school in Tufnell Park who, if some former alumni have their way, will be denied seeing Damian Lewis (who lives locally) launch the school’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
He went to Eton, and some former have decreed that anyone who went to an "elitist" school must never cross the threshold of Acland Burghley or mix with current pupils!
One former pupil, City University sociology lecturer Rachel Cohen, who attended the school in the 1980s, has set up a petition which has attracted 90 signatures urging the school to change its plans.
Nice to see inverse snobbery is still thriving in Britain!
Snobbery, be it top down or bottom up, is a sure fire way to stifle ambition and to keep everyone in their perceived "social class".
