Top professions 'operate closed shop to exclude the poor' - Times Online: "Mr Milburn said: “There is a chasm between where we are and where we need to be if Britain is to realise the social and economic benefits of huge potential growth in professional employment.
“Not everyone can be a doctor or a lawyer and not everyone will want to be. But those with ability and aptitude need a fair crack of the whip to realise their aspirations.”"
Mr Milburn and Mr Brown need only take a look at the elitist Financial Services Authority, no blacks please, no IFAs if you don't mind and certainly no non-Freemasons. The FSA is without doubt the most blatantly elitist government created quango of them all.
