I AM absolutely disgusted at the proposal of some Labour MPs to ban public schools.

This proposal is Communism and another example of Labour's politics of envy.

If people wish to make many sacrifices to save sufficient money to send their children to public schools then they must be allowed to do so.

Do these lefty politicians not realise that those parents who send a child to a public school are saving the Government about £7,000pa, which is the cost of a poor state school education?
