In today’s Guardian, on page 43, in the puzzle section (there doesn’t seem to be a webpage with this content) it claims he said on Newsnight that the Stafford hospital scandal was caused by “a serious failure on behalf of the trust board.”
He’s supposed to have been educated – expensively educated – at one of the best schools in the country. It would claim to be the best, I’m sure.
Yet it has unaccountably failed to teach him to speak English.
So much for Eton as a beacon of excellence.
