Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.

Of the 22 shadow cabinet members ten went to fee-paying schools and three went to grammar schools. If you include Ed Miliband, six members of Labour’s front bench team did PPE at Oxford and nine went to either Oxford or Cambridge.

If you think this is a "new generation" of Labour, then it is worth remembering that all of the shadow cabinet were on the government payroll before the election as ministers or whips.

New generation? Won't get fooled again.
