"After many years of writing letters to the BBC, at 17, Schofield took up the position of bookings clerk and tea boy for BBC Radio at Broadcasting House in London, where he was, at the time, the youngest employee."
So - would you like to tar eg. Oxford graduate Harold Wilson with the same smear-brush? What about Philby, Blunt and the rest of the Cambridge Five?
Oh yeah - my own Alma Mater also just happens to be St.John's College, Cambridge.
But note bene that my time there was preceded by 16 years growing up and being educated in extreme poverty on a council estate - five surprisingly happy kids - even though our disillusioned father died young and our very resourceful mother worked five evenings a week etc. Neither parent ever had a car or learned to drive.
For four of us brainy (etc) kids, university - not long before grants were abolished - seemed like the best and quickest way to escape from poverty and the council estate.
Three of us made it to Oxbridge, one to Imperial College London and one to RADA(but she had to send out a ton of begging letters to wealthy celebs to finance it - a certain Phil Collins was particularly generous...)
Yep - it's dead easy to tar everyone with the same posh-toff brush, innit?
Yeah - I'm a Camford toff, alright.
