If you are not familiar with English public schools and their history, they were all single sex (male for centuries) and rife with homosexuality, not always consensual. As most politicians of note emanated from such schools it may explain how they are happy to hand down heartless policies such as the universal credit which has significantly raised the suicide rate.
