Recommended Posts

This month, freshers arrived at one of the world’s most prestigious universities ready to start a first-rate education. Instead, some will be educated in how to drink themselves into oblivion. The liquid-laced antics of students has provoked an admonition from the master of Gonville and Caius College, Sir Alan Fersht, who emailed students to decry drinking initiation rituals, stating that it was a “national scandal” that men are “indulging in laddish behaviour and sadistic initiation rights, and … plying women with drink and abusing them”. Welcome to the darker side of Oxbridge."

"University-based drinking societies are the perfect training ground for young boys seeking entry to the old boys’ club. The existence of drinking societies is the antithesis of equality, and widening inclusion and access to Oxbridge. Women are locked out of them....:lol:
