Oxford still not quite getting student diversity
Oxford University is supposedly doing its best to encourage applications from state school sixth-formers. Invigilating at an exam full of students in "subfusc" this morning, however, put me in mind of an evening with the Bullingdon Club (spot the mayor of London and leader of the opposition in the photo above).
I wonder how these silly fancy dress regulations impact on teenagers who don't wish they had gone to Eton.
