Rishi sunak claims keir starmer 'not fit to lead' during furious clash over private schools

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Rishi Sunak claims Keir Starmer ‘not fit to lead’ during furious clash over private schools” – below is their description.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer clashed over education at Prime Minister’s Questions.

Rishi Sunak claimed Sir Keir Starmer is “not fit to lead” as they clashed over Labour’s plan to scrap charitable status for private schools.

The Prime Minister, who attended Winchester College, told Sir Keir during PMQs: “Whenever he attacks me about where I went to school he is attacking the hardworking aspiration of millions of people in this country.

“He is attacking people like my parents. This is a country that believes in opportunity not resentment and he doesn’t understand that and that’s why he is not fit to lead.”

Sir Keir hit back and said: “If he thinks the route to better education in this country is tax breaks for private schools in the hope they might hand some of that down to state schools, that is laughable. Trickle down education is nonsense.”
