Clever Clogs


One hears universities are to be set targets for males now.

Rather than buggering about engineering the education system to the extent that every conceivable group is fairly represented, how about just making university entry subject to a student being clever?

I think a few more people in positions of power, when proffered asinine initiatives by underlings, should feel able to say: "Now don't be a prat and do go away dear boy."

  1. The problem is that so many of those people in power were educated at "elite universities" due not to the fact that they were clever but because the universities operated a quota scheme in favour of the public schools they attended.

    1. But the grammar school system was an excellent way of ensuring the best went to university, regardless of their background.
