Liz Truss didn’t lie about being the first PM from a comprehensive school. She’s just lazy

That’s not a good quality for a prime minister to have!

Thanks should go to Professor Tim Wilson for unearthing the facts that Liz Truss is not the first UK prime minister to come from a comprehensive school background.

Theresa May went to Wheatley Park Comprehensive School (although it had been a grammar school previously), and Gordon Brown attended Kirkaldy High School, also a comprehensive.

Prof Wilson suggests that this should not be held as an example of Truss lying; instead, we should see it as proof that she doesn’t do her research properly and is merely lazy:

Sadly, this could be seen as an example of a classic Tory tactic: the double-bind.

If she succeeds at her job, they’ll say what a great example she is, coming from such a disadvantaged background that she had to go to a comprehensive.

If she fails, they’ll say it was because she went to a comprehensive and the education system needs overhauling to bring in private education providers and end this blight on our children.

It’s what they usually do – right?

    You seem to have forgotten Gordon Brown went to a High School – a comprehensive in Scotland.
