Yep.

 

It was all a grotesque mistake......courtesy of the now wilderness-dwelling David Cameron.

 

The work of fixing it doing nobody any good.

 

It continues to keep the vultures of America and China circling in hungry anticipation.

 

 

 

 

China is 6000 miles away.

I guess you were too young to remember the Poll Tax Riots under Mrs Thatcher?

Those were leftist rioters, the same crowd who want us to stay in Europe.

 

The worst riots ever seen in the UK were those carried out by young black men in the 1980s and again in 2011 when five people lost their lives.

 

Englishmen don't know how to riot and would not do so if they did.

So then, leftists and Blacks cannot be Englishmen. Great example of Brexiteer IQ.

What is once more becoming an independent Britain got to do with once having had an Empire?

Ask that question to the poster he was reacting to, who was complaining about the EU empire and wanted the British empire back.

I did. My post was a reply to and was addressed to the poster called 'Aforek' who introduced the subject of the 'British empire' into the topic.

 

The fact that someone had previously referred to an EU Empire is not my concern and nor was my reply addressed to that poster.

You're right, he did introduce it. I though Aforek reacted to somebody else, but looks like it was the other way round.

Eaton is an electrical company.

Sorry Mr. Spelling Nazi. Simple typo. I worked for an electrical company, my parents worked at Eton College.

Membership of the Bullingdon Club opens even more doors.

 

Also an Oxford degree is of no use if it isn't accompanied by attendance at Eaton College.

No, I have to disagree with you there.

But Oxon is more likely to open doors than Open is. Way of the world old chap.

That is true. Nevertheless I rate OU highly. Anyone who can take a degree later in life while holding down a job deserves admiration. I rate OU graduates highly.

And the likes of Cameron, Gove, Boris Johnson, Rees-Mogg and Osbourne would disagree with you.

 

But, of course, your father's CV is even more important. There is zero mobility between the classes. To be considered "U" or upper class as opposed to "non U" you have to have been born "U".

that is maybe highlighting just one of UK's many many challenges

boomboom peoples capabilities, focus on who dished out the paper

 

 

 

I understand your point but you are quite wrong

 

The standard of lecturers varies widely

 

teaching standards also vary widely

 

Finally, a university education is not solely about vocational qualification. This is one reason why collegiate universities are superior IMO; imagine spending 3 years with a bunch of physicists!
