Because the route into the top of UK politics is still via the old boys network, private schools and Oxbridge. That is not going to change any time soon.

I assume by s you mean jobs as illegal immigrants don't get any benefits.

But it's not. Just one of those pouches (and they're not big) can contain 20-25% of your RDA of sugar. That's pretty ridiculous tbh. By comparison, Fruit Shoots contain only 2%.
