Small group of elites still rule our country

I recently read that our country is still run by a privately educated elite. 

See this article in the Guardianhttps://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/jun/25/britain-ruled-private-educated-people-culture-deference

Both Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt are part of this elite. Sajid Javid who was educated at a state comprehensive and is the son of Pakistani parents didn't make it to the finals. 

I think it is a big problem that members of our government are so out of touch with ordinary people who make up our country now.

Wow, that is shocking. I didn't know it was that bad still. It explains a lot though.
