In explaining so clearly that academic selection helps social mobility, the Telegraph misses the point. I believe Labour loves comprehensive schools - which by any rational measure are a failure - precisely because they inhibit social mobility.
As a class-based socialist party, Labour needs intelligent working-class people to be prevented from advancing. It needs such people to be embittered, frustrated and open to left-wing ideology. It wants them to fail, because Labour is the losers' party.
