ONLY seven percent of state school pupils get into heated arguments about game meats compared to 75 percent of their private school counterparts.
Private schools insisted there was an increasing ‘venison divide’ between youngsters who eat domesticated farm animals and so-called ‘privileged teenagers’.
A spokesman for the Society of Private Schools said: “Our research shows that state school children do not have to worry about venison, grouse, pheasant or even quail.
“They do not have the burden of having to have an opinion about gamekeepers, shotgun manufacturers and the quality of the picnics served during a day’s shoot on a large estate.”
Private school pupil Julian Cooke said: “I’m under a lot of pressure to be incredibly well-informed about game. There are more than seven different game meats and dozens of estates. Meanwhile, there’s a boy in my house who has eaten a wild emu.
“State school children are so lucky to live such simple, everyday lives. I wish I could do that while still being worth £275 million.”
