Not all British men from privileged backgrounds are foolish snobs with a twisted outlook on life. Some are wonderful people. But I have noticed over the years that the men who come up with the ridiculous and obviously flawed ideas, then insist on pushing them through, very often had an expensive education.


Though Corbyn's parents — his mother Norma was a scientist who retrained as a maths teacher — were long-standing members of the Labour Party, rather than send Jeremy (who had three older brothers, Edward, Andrew and Piers) to the local state school, they enrolled him in private school Castle House, where fees today cost more than $10,687.97 (£7,000) a year.

The school's independent status was at odds with his parents' staunch Socialist beliefs, and this might explain why Corbyn omits it from his CV.



We know Corbyn notoriously ignored the many desperate cries for help and thereby enabled organised child rape to continue in his constituency for many years, while making sure he was photographed and recorded supporting every other cause under the sun.

We know Corbyn is a private bankers puppet seeking to further impoverish and enslave the working people of Britain.

We also need to know he's a posh boy.

Politics, Jeremy Corbyn ex Public School
Sep 7, 2015
Swinging hockey sticks at a ball while pedalling furiously around the lawn of a country house, five privileged boys were revelling in an impromptu game of bicycle polo.

This was a typical summer scene at Lilleshall Hall, the family retreat completed in 1831 for the Duke of Sutherland, whose peerage was created by William IV. For the boys would gather to play the game as often as possible.

Of course, bicycle polo is nowhere like as grand as proper polo, the sport so beloved of Prince Charles and his sons William and Harry. But these games were clearly enjoyed by the group of boys in the opulent setting in the Shropshire countryside.

What a delicious irony that the noisiest lad back then in 1955 was a six-year-old Jeremy Corbyn, who now, many decades on from that bucolic childhood, has become the Hard Left class warrior who'd like Britain to become a republic and who has petitioned for the Royal Family to be moved from Buckingham Palace into a 'more modest' dwelling.

But then, of course, Comrade Corbyn is like so many other Left-wingers who have enjoyed a privileged background themselves only to deny it to others by pulling up the ladder to social mobility by, for example, sabotaging grammar schools. For these hypocrites, it seems it has always been a case of 'Do what I say — don't do what I do.'

So, what is the truth about the posh childhood of Jeremy Bernard Corbyn?

Born in Chippenham, Wiltshire, he spent his first five years in a five-bedroom detached house in half an acre of land in the picturesque village of Kington St Michael. The property was recently put on the market for $931,378.50 (£610,000).

The family moved to Shropshire when Corbyn's father, David, a brilliant electrical engineer, changed jobs. They settled into Yew Tree Manor, a seven-bedroom house that was once part of the Duke of Sutherland's Lilleshall estate. The house had two acres of land, outbuildings and a paddock.

Though Corbyn's parents — his mother Norma was a scientist who retrained as a maths teacher — were long-standing members of the Labour Party, rather than send Jeremy (who had three older brothers, Edward, Andrew and Piers) to the local state school, they enrolled him in private school Castle House, where fees today cost more than $10,687.97 (£7,000) a year.

The school's independent status was at odds with his parents' staunch Socialist beliefs, and this might explain why Corbyn omits it from his CV.

For the Hard left Labour leadership favourite is a vehement opponent of private and selective education. Indeed, he wants to abolish the charitable status of fee-paying schools such as Castle House.

The family home, Yew Tree Manor, is now worth around $1.8m (£1.2m) and is near a lake where young Corbyn and his friends often went fishing.

Jeremy and his brother Piers (now a leading independent weather forecaster) went to Castle House, which had been founded in 1944.

It was known locally as 'Miss Pitchford's School' after the headmistress Zellah Pitchford. She was a formidable character who retired in 1983.

Castle House pupils wore smart blue uniforms. We were too young to be aware of a class thing, but everyone knew Castle House was a cut above the rest.'

Just like Ed and David Miliband, Corbyn had middle-class parents who reared him on a diet of Socialism.

They had met in the Thirties in London at a committee meeting for supporters of Spain's Republicans in the fight against Franco's fascists. His father, the son of a solicitor, grew up in East London, where he worked as an engineer during the war.

When his own children were growing up, there were regular political soirees and the Corbyn boys were expected to take part. Piers has said: 'Politics was a constant topic around the family dinner table.'

Adams Grammar School, which dates back to 1656, still upholds standards of education excellence. Jeremy made a name for himself as a Left-wing firebrand taking part in mock election debates as the Labour candidate.

Meanwhile, his brothers prospered. Edward became a test engineer on Concorde; Andrew, the second brother, went on to be a geologist, but later died from high blood pressure in Papua New Guinea; and Piers constructed devices to study the solar system before setting up Weather Action, which studies reports of weather and related solar activity.

Jeremy was the least bright academically, leaving school with two E-grade A-levels. He went on to a degree course at North London Polytechnic but left before finishing.

Adams Grammar, which had the pretensions of a minor public school, was anxious to foster a military ethos, despite National Service ending in 1960, and had a thriving combined cadet force. However, Jeremy Corbyn, already a supporter of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, refused to take part.

Half a century on, Corbyn's view of the military has not mellowed.

He wants to withdraw Britain from Nato, scrap the Trident nuclear weapon programme and slash the size of the Armed Forces. The Islington North MP says: 'Why do we have to have planes, transport aircraft, aircraft carriers and everything else to get anywhere in the world. Why?'

The fact that he attended a private and a grammar school — despite his adamantine opposition to such establishments — has impinged on his personal life.

Three times married, he has been dubbed 'The Sexpot Trot' and, despite his dishevelled appearance — with a white vest protruding under his open-necked shirt — some women on the Mumsnet website have cooed over his 'world-weary sea dog look.'

However, his second marriage infamously fell foul of his strong opinions about education and class.

He had met wife No 2 Claudia Bracchitta, an exiled Chilean designer, in the Eighties when they were in the audience for a speech by Ken Livingstone, then leader of Greater London Council. The pair also had links through Corbyn's involvement in Amnesty International's campaign against Chilean President Augusto Pinochet.

The couple had three sons, but broke up in 1999 after she wanted to send one of the boys to a top grammar school. Corbyn opposed her as he despised selective teaching and wouldn't back down. Claudia refused to send their son to an inner-city comprehensive and the marriage couldn't stand the strain.

She won the day, with their son going to Queen Elizabeth's grammar school in Barnet — nine miles from their home in Islington.

At the time, she complained Corbyn was 'first the politician and second the parent'. She explained: 'My children's education is my absolute priority.

'The decision to send our son to grammar school was made by myself alone and without the consent of my husband. The difficulties of making decisions under these circumstances have played an important role in bringing about a regrettable marital break-up.

'I could not compromise my son's future for my husband's career. I regret it is going to be difficult for Jeremy, but it was an impossible decision. Nobody really is a winner.'

His fixation with politics also caused the collapse of his first marriage to the academic Jane Chapman. They were councillors in North London but split in 1979 after she tired of coming second to his politics.

Two years ago, Corbyn married Laura Alvarez, 46, in her native Mexico. She shares his zeal for Left-wing politics and imports Fairtrade coffee from her homeland.

If he becomes Labour leader, will the third Mrs Corbyn follow in the tradition of previous leaders' wives and join him on the stage after his keynote speech at the annual party conference in Brighton this autumn?

A committed feminist, the signs are she will not. Similarly, it is thought that if he ever becomes prime minister, the Corbyns would eschew Downing Street and continue to live in Finsbury Park, North London.

3 threads in less than a week attempting to link Jeremey Corbyn to child rape with zero proof of the allegations only you and the Tory media are pushing. This has got to be some record.

WE GET IT, YOU DONT LIKE JEREMY. CHANGE THE RECORD.!!!!!!!!

Well I didn't know but since you have said "We know" it must be true! Evidence be damned!!

I am glad he has had a decent education because if it means he is articulate and well educated than that has to be a plus for whatever job he does. The ideology of the labour party doesn't preclude good education, in fact it encourages it for all.

There are a lot of people whose homes have increased in value to the million quid mark - again not something to use as a tool to say he's 'posh' so doesn't relate to the labour party which is open to all.

My only two slight irritants are Diane Abbot on the front bench and his attitude towards the crime of child rape - but I suspect he is well aware of how the majority of the public feel about that. I hope he will surprise us and b e very proactive on that matter and push for all investigations into paedophelia to be hardened up and those still alive to actually be prosecuted. Just that one thing would single him out and be one of the best attributes to his leadership.

The establishment and media are out for his guts but I hope he holds hard. I also hope the labour party hits those MP's more conspicuous for their absence in parliament due to their meteoric fall in their careers with fines. Gordon is on my list as I never see his face when we see our parliament in action.

WOW he has really got up your nose hasn't he.

Smell the fear can we? Notice how the mud slinging has had bugger all effect, in actual fact it has had the opposite effect.

The policies are now coming into view and are absolutely NOT some kind of extreme Trotsky left slant. Something that has caught his opponents and detractors out, big time.

He did not fall flat on his face at PMQ due to his genius approach. For those who look at things literally who may have missed the clever bit : By reading questions from the public he was essentially reading a script and this prevented any chance whatsover of being drawn into a slagging match which is what the rabid right press wanted so they could have their headlines. The Tory comments clearly show they spotted this as well.

Give it a rest we know you don't like the guy. Since we all know you hate him with a passion you can save yourself a lot of typing and ridiculous internet searching by giving this a rest. Your posts will have no influence whatsover here on ATS. This is a site notorious for entrenched views, which is ironic really, but that's another topic !

after leaving college. Between age 18-20 I believe.

What complete tosh you talk.

Clement Attlee, who is regarding as Britain's best ever Prime Minister ( and a Labour one too boot ) attended private schools.

Without Attlee, there would be no Welfare State, National Health Service, Social Housing etc etc.

I think Kester is just jealous. He's probably a failed maverick conservative like Ken Clarke who never made PM, even though he was brighter than most, 'cos he wore suede shoes.

Three exact points.

He failed to answer the call for help. Anyone can make an effort, there is no excuse.

He wants to borrow more imaginary money and therefore create more imaginary debt.

He's a posh boy. I've frequently had problems with the know-it-all attitude of posh boys.

But the most vulnerable of his constituents weren't worth a moment of his time?

Exotic locations and mentally stimulating cultural differences attract the attention of the posh boys. It's so much easier than work.

Three exact points hardly constitutes a dislike for a personage. He might be a real laugh behind the scenes.

Group of social workers, barrister who is former children's home unfortunate, Spare Rib reporter, fellow labour MP, these are not the Tory media.

He's got some serious secret around his failure to respond to the cries for help.
