In areas with grammar schools, parents want more of them.
There is uproar in Kent, one of the few areas that still has selective education, with not enough places in grammar schools for parents who want to send their children to them. Surprise, surprise, there are calls for a new grammar school to open in Sevenoaks to meet demand in the area.
No doubt this won't be supported by Etonian David Cameron. No, no, no: grammar schools are far too elitist, of course.
Unfortunately for him, 85% of young people agree with UKIP's backing of grammar schools.
