Rumours that Labour will make private schools pay 20% vat once in power. Raising £2bn that will be spent on state schools that need it.

Posh dummies being thrown everywhere.

 

but what if parents take their kids out of private school in protest?

They won't, because poor Tarkers will get battered at the local comp.

I don't mean "but what about the poor kids and their private education"

I meant as in, they've looked at numbers and (for arguments sake), said

right there's 1 million kids in private education 

so let's add VAT to their fees

and the parents of 750k kids can't afford the increase

so pull them out and stick them in state schools

you've got more kids in state schools, and less money being put into the state schools which are already struggling

I'm sure the impact wouldn't be so great, but there's still potential for this to have an adverse impact on their plans

I imagine the schools would cut their fees to compensate.

They’ll just have to make sacrifices

Maybe scale back the family holiday from a 4 week safari to a week in benidorm

We’re all being asked to suck it up. It applies to everyone.

I suspect they will find the money, if it means young Ichabod not having to have his tuck money beaten out of him by a grubby pauper from the estate.

not all kids in private school are from dead rich and dead posh familes

for example

mine

but

if it becomes too expensive they won't go and I'd actually be able to afford to go on a 4 week safari so thinking about it I might actually vote Labour

If Brexit and the WanderersWays Elders have taught me anything these last few years, it’s that we Brits are the best in the world at dealing with challenges.

I was told that my business merely needed to adjust to the loss of export customers after Brexit, and that I ought to have been prepared.

Winners and losers. I was told.

So I’m merely applying that cast iron logic to a potential policy that is aimed squarely at an area that I would expect is largely populated by dyed in the wool Tories (not 100%, but I reckon more than 52%).

The schools would simply have to adjust their business model to cope with the new circumstances. And given that these institutions are the Best of British, I would definitely be dismayed if they were to start going all snowflakey and entitled.

winners and losers.
