End the chummy clubs of private schools, Oxbridge connections, parachuting a kid into the job because his dad is so and so... We might actually be able to dig this country out of a hole if we stop being so deferential to the upper classes.

This has been happening for years and is why the country is in such a state - gonna only get worse

I would have thought that a much better business plan would be to want the best candidates to be directors and partners. Regardless of background, or any of the protected characteristics.

how will they define working class?

There will be no KPMG by 2030

There will be no working class by 2030

The global vaccine cull and whatever else follows will see to that

Numerically we the working class are the largest group in Britain, yet we have the least representation of any major group. Thats equality for you.

If the better educated get better jobs that IS equality. To ensure that less well educated people get the top jobs is the exact opposite of equality - it is social manipulation based on class, which in my opinion is a very bad thing. Manipulating job opportunities based on any characteristic which cannot be controlled by the individual is a terrible idea.

I am 5foot 8inches tall. Why does that mean I should have less opportunity than a seven footer to make the British basketball team? The answer is ...... because the seven footer is better qualified than I am, and I can't see anything wrong with that.

How do you know you have got the best people, they might have a better education but that doesn't mean they are more intelligent or even have any common sense. Just look at our politicians all been to uni and all underachievers, full of the big talk but sadly lacking, I could go the BBC another prime example

Being a politician is a semi skilled job , as is working for kpmg - anyone could do it so it matters not .

Good marketing ploy.... I had never heard of KPMG until this story came out..
