Stella Creasy Says England’s Footballers Are Too Posh

stella-family-tree

Stella Creasy is the subject of much amusement this afternoon after seriously telling the Commons that the England football team is struggling because it has too many posh, privately-educated players:

“Thirteen per cent of our national football team went to a private school, which is double the number of people who go to those private schools nationally. Does he think that might account for the performance of our national football team, if we’re missing out on the talent that exists in the comprehensive sector?”

Just how posh is Stella? Read all about her family, the Verekers, Cayzers, Prendergasts and Gorts – Colonels, Baronets, Viscounts and parliamentarians – here. If poshness is a marker of poor performance, what does that say about Stella? Nobody tell her about the England rugby team…
