The posh-yob and loutish, loaded misogynist attitudes that private male "public" schools encourage or at best merrily tolerate regrettably couldn't for once be concealed from the public. Kept private. Non-public. Confused? We apologise. We failed to hide the Ugly Truth for once. It won't happen again.
Indeed - it speaks volumes that the wealthy elites long ago succeeded so easily in getting the public to unquestioningly and permanently refer to private schools as "public" schools.
And still even now most people remain oblivious to the absurd, opposite-of-the-truth nature of the "public" school misnomer.
Private = Public.
If elite educators can achieve that level of brazen truth-inversion so easily they know they'll always just as easily be able to persuade the,er, public that Truth = Lies, Right = Wrong, Up = Down, Biased = Unbiased, We Despise You = We Respect You, Innocent = Guilty..and vice-versa or versa-vice ad nauseam et infinitum.
(Yep - I confess to being a Latin scholar educated at a top-rated public grammar school..located on a common-as-muck council estate - as was my house. Like many Eton toffs I grew up on a sprawling Estate)
