Mummy, what’s social mobility…

Fresh from the mouth of Westmonster… What is it? The Sutton Trust, writing nearly three years ago defined it as:

“It captures the degree of equality in life chances – the extent to which a person’s circumstances during childhood are reflected in their success in later life, or on the flip-side, the extent to which individuals can make it by virtue of their own talents, motivation and luck.”

In Northern Ireland, Unionists generally think social mobility is a good thing, Nationalists prefer not to the think about it at all… Unless, of course, you know better?
