Back in the 1950s, snobbish parents with money competed to distinguish their children from the riff-raff, selecting schools which demanded expensive be-ribboned blazers and fancy striped ties and goodness knows what else (provided it cost lots of money) - and even for five year old children who would grow out of it all in six months.
Someone dug out an old photo showing the results and fooled The Guardian into putting it on today's front page as if it was happening now. Don't they know that Scotland, unlike England, is a Progressive country where such garments have been consigned to the charity shop of history?
