Last Night's TV: Posh and Posher: Why Public School Boys Run Britain/BBC2<br />The Joy of Teen Sex/Channel 4
Thursday 27 January 2011
Posh and Posher: Why Public School Boys Run Britain, Andrew Neil's polemic about the gentrification of British politics, began with the most modish of documentary style flourishes – one of those tilt-shift long-shots that transforms the real world into something that looks like a model village. For once, though, the gimmick had a justification in the script. As the camera panned across a Legoland vision of Westminster, with dinky toy cars streaming past outside, Neil described it as "a tiny toy-town world beyond the reach of most of us... the playground of a rich elite." After a brief Prague Spring of meritocracy – when grammar school-educated premiers such as Harold Wilson and Margaret Thatcher achieved the highest office in the land (no mention of Jim Callaghan, perhaps because he didn't think he had any merit) – we'd now reverted to business as usual, with private incomes, public-school backgrounds and the old boy network providing the keys to the gate.
