This report examines who is in charge of Britain. It does so on the basis of new research which analysed the background of 4,000 leaders in politics, business, the media and other aspects of public life in the UK. This research highlights a dramatic over-representation of those educated at independent schools and Oxbridge across the institutions that have such a profound influence on what happens in this country. It suggests that Britain is deeply elitist.
