I am sick of reading about ''elite private schools''. Some of them are as poor as the proverbial church mouse.
(Discloure: Wiggins went to a Catholic high school that was so poor we used to practise field hockey in the car park next door.)

I suppose someone might mean "elite" as in being able to choose their students, unlike a public school, which is open to all. But I also suppose that schools run by the local Catholic, Lutheran or other denominational diocese don't have that choice either. <p>Tell you what. If it makes you happy, Paul, I'll never write that again. :)
