Looking at the sort of people it turns out - David Cameron, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Charles Moore - it is tempting to call for the place to be closed down.

But I have a better idea.

Eton was founded by Henry VI Eton College as a charity school to provide free education to 70 poor boys.

So let's return it to its original purpose of educating the poor.
