The Independent makes George Orwell move school

Simon Turnbull beings his piece on Scotland's team for Saturday confidently:
Thom and Max Evans were both schooled at Wellington College in Berkshire. So was Eric Arthur Blair, or George Orwell as he preferred to be known when he wrote "Down And Out In Paris And London".
Wrong. Orwell attended Eton.

I shall remember this next time a journalist moans about bloggers.

Later. I take it back slightly. According to Wikipedia, Orwell spent a single term at Wellington before going to Eton.
