Self-anointed ‘man of the people’ Nigel Farage has been spotted at a reunion party at his £21,000 a year public school.
In a photograph posted to Twitter by the Evening Standard’s Sophie Jarvis, Farage is seen swanning around the party at Dulwich College, which celebrated the school’s 400th anniversary.
Some have speculated that the Brexit Party founder was wearing a blazer that is given to boys who achieve “full house colours”, meaning that he won an award for sporting, music or academic achievement.
Others, however, have said it was actually an ‘Old Alleynians’ blazer, which is given to alumni of the school.
As of 2019, Dulwich college school fees are some £21,000 a year. For those who board at the school, the annual cost is almost £45,000 a year. The average salary in the UK is £29,000.
Other alumni of the public school include former Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University Alice Halford Smith, Financial Times editor Lionel Barber and writer P.G. Wodehouse.
That’s not very anti-establishment.
It is not the first time Farage’s working class hero mask has slipped. He recently hosted an expensive dinner in a Hilton Hotel in Hull, where he delivered a speech attacking the establishment.
Seems like Nigel Farage is only a man of the people when it suits him. Otherwise, he prefers his blazer-clad old school friends.
