Morningside Labour MP calls for MORE inequality!


In the Edinburgh Scotsman yesterday

Edinburgh University graduate and Shadowy Secretary of State, Ian Murray, has called on the SNP Government to help his old alma matter out, as covid-19 bites into its well-padded finances.

However as one of the worst in the UK, THE worst in Scotland , for admitting working-class students, it should be last in line:

‘A HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) assessment has revealed that only 18.7 per cent of Edinburgh students come from a working class background. This statistic is 12th lowest in the country, with Oxford’s 10 per cent taking the bottom spot. Edinburgh didn’t fare well in relation to its neighbours either, with Glasgow having 21.4 per cent working class students and Stirling a far sturdier 32 per cent.’

Most Scottish universities, judging by the data below, will be well before EU in deserving help:

And, look at Murray here with Scotland in Union‘s CE, Pamela Gnash. Would you take advice from this man?
