Product description

British political leaders are once again drawn from a class born to be educated away from their families in institutions - elite boarding schools. This has a direct effect on their ability to love, to relate, to make good judgments and to develop the necessary leadership qualities for today's world. The author follows the elite path through Oxbridge to government to unpack what he calls the Entitlement Illusion. Central to the Illusion is a uniquely British phenomenon, an industrialised process for turning out Imperial servants that has been unwilling to change with the times, deified in the Victorian Rational Man Project, and normalised by the British public, who buy into the trance
