Two-thirds of Johnson's cabinet of senior ministers attended private school and David Cameron, who was prime minister from 2010-2016, also went to Eton.

At its annual conference in the English seaside resort of Brighton, the Labour Party passed a motion supported by leftist groups to abolish private schools and integrate them into the state sector to help dismantle "the privilege of a tiny".

Members voted to back a move that would scrap tax loopholes, remove charitable status and pubic subsidies to private schools.

Holly Rigby, Abolish Eton campaigner applauded the proposal saying that the Labour party has fulfilled its long-held commitment for dealing with private school-borne issues.

Labour delegates approved a motion which said such a commitment should be included in the party's next general election manifesto.

Rayner stated that the move would be the responsibility of the Social Mobility Commission, which would be renamed the Social Justice Commission under the party.

It would require drastic action for Oxford, St Andrews, Imperial, and Durham, who all now take over a third of their students from private school.

"I think that would get Jeremy Corbyn into Number 10, I think that'd get John McDonnell into number 11 and get Angela Rayner into the Department for Education, and that's exactly what we should do".

"It is a matter of fact that private schools perpetuate structural inequality in our society and we can see that in the number of top professions and leadership positions in our country that are dominated disproportionately by people who went to private schools", said the Glasgow North East MP.

After Labour had banned establishing new academic-attainment selective grammar schools in a previous government, there is the question of where Labour's policies of stopping school choice or making illegal so-called "unfairness" in the education system would end, given British parents also pay privately for tutors, music teachers, and other non-State controlled extracurricular activities. Tearing down excellent schools does not improve our education system.

Julie Robinson - chief executive of the Independent Schools Council, termed this act as an assault on the parental right for choosing desirable education for their children.
