Letter: Education for a rich elite

Sir: On page 3 of today's edition (21 April) you reveal that Eton College, a charitable institution used by the very wealthy, has assets of pounds 131m. On Page 9 a story on hospital waiting lists now exceeding 1.1 million. On the letters page a plea for continued state subsidy for the wealthy to educate their children.

Surely the Tory campaign will reveal plans to stop this waste of public money. By shutting more hospitals.
