    Wink David Cameron on Social Mobility in the UK

    "David Cameron has conceded that there was insufficient social mobility in British society and said it was the job of the government to raise the aspirations of people from poor backgrounds to get top jobs in public life.

    Speaking days after Sir John Major criticised the "truly shocking" dominance of the affluent and privately educated in public life, the Eton- and Oxford-educated prime minister accepted that the coalition must "do far more" to increase diversity in the national elite.

    On the first evening of a trip to India, Cameron told reporters travelling with him that he absolutely agreed with the thrust of Major's comments and criticised the social make-up of politics, the media, armed forces and judiciary. His remarks came on the same day his social mobility adviser, Alan Milburn, warned of Britain's "flatlining" social mobility."

    Governments shouldn't have to raise aspirations. Individuals should raise their own aspirations.

    If governments don't have an influence on this through their policies then any government will do.
