An educated argument?

What a hate-filled spiel this is from Gillian Ferguson. She obviously writes about private education with the aid of a top-of-the-range Leftist Cliche Generator:

posh gits,
let's josh,
poor plebs,
thick inbreds,
barbaric, outdated system,
unjustified sense of superiority,
archaic system of child cruelty,

not to mention the assumption that our money really belongs to the state and that any tax relief is a subsidy. Do people write like this because, deep down, they know that state education is going to the dogs? There certainly seems to be a total lack of understanding that government schools are paid for by taxpayers and that we are getting very angry.
