Does it matter what school you went to?

Graham Stewart | 10:05 UK time, Thursday, 3 December 2009

There was a noisy return to class warfare at Prime Minister's Question time yesterday. In what looked like a dry run for next year's general election campaigning, the Prime Minister sought to portray himself as someone who represents the interests of the whole country - whilst he accused David Cameron of only caring about a wealthy elite, referring to his privileged Eton schooling.

Does your background matter? It might not be an Eton background, but did you go to a private school? Does it make you out-of-touch? Or does it simply give you advantages in life? And do those of us who have a working class, state-educated background - like the Prime Minister - just have a giant chip on our shoulders?
