Election Explodes Oxbridge Myth

Evan as the wrangling over what kind of government we will have is continuining between Liberal Democrat, Conservative and Labour negotiators in the Whitehall political village some interting insights into the development of British society are emerging from the election results.

For eaxample it has long ben an ambition among parents of all social classes and income groups that their children should go to one of the great Universities, Oxford or Cambridge. An Oxbridge education has been considered the first step en route to a glittering career.

Unfortunately analysis of the election results has shown that of the 231 newly elected MPs heading for Westminster 160 went to Oxford or Cambridge. This represents around 70%.

What devastating news that must be for parents who have made personal sacrifices to help their chldren get to one of those colleges. If they get an Oxbridge degree the only job they will be qualified for is politics.

Unless of course they widen their options by taking a post grad course in MacOlogy

Cameron Seduces Clegg Well they are both publlic schoolboys, if you know what I mean.
