The Party Education Spokesman stood at the podium and pointed at the projection of his party’s expenditure within the capital.  As he spoke, he was flanked by the Prime Minister on one side and a teenage girl on the other.

“And I am proud to stand here with Amy Brown, an inner city girl who has achieved remarkable results in both her GCSE’s and her A levels.  This young inspirational woman, in fact, scored the highest in the nation in both English and Philosophy, and she will be entering Oxford University this autumn.  Despite her inner city roots, she has achieved these remarkable results in large part owing to our party’s initiatives . . . .”

Suddenly the girl interrupted him, “Actually Sir, I am from Mayfair.”
