“I went to a grammar school and it was good, therefore they are good”, says 45 year-old bigot

A sales and marketing representative from Kent has surely put an end to the age-old debate of whether the UK should introduce more grammar schools, after revealing that he went to one, and “it was good”.

Steven Horsely, 45, from Tunbridge Wells, said: “Say what you want about grammars but I went to one and didn’t do me any harm. “I got a world class education for free, what’s bad about that? The school was full of top chaps and we ought to have more of that. I wouldn’t have got to where I am today without it.”

Asked if he knew how many people from lower income backgrounds passed the 11+ and got to attend grammar schools, Horsely added: “Look, stop pub quizzing me. My grammar school was really good.”

When given the opportunity to expand on his original statement he replied: “Look, do you know how many of us got straight A grades in our O-Levels? Around 15 in my year group alone. I don’t know anyone at the school who didn’t enjoy it,” he continued.

He concluded:“Overall, in my experience, it was really good.”
