I especially like this suggestion;

" Are there networking events designed for the elites and their sympathisers where you could let off a stink bomb? "

He seems like a very confused man. The fact he has had a half-decent education, has access to the internet and lives in a country that does not immediately jail people for such actions makes him elite to much of the world.

I gave up on his blog after a couple of paragraphs. He has had his five minute of fame, so can go away now.

I've always liked the tradition of the winning eight dipping their cox into the river afterwards.........

Yaaay! Perhaps the BBC would like to stop spending our money televising this absolute pile of wank year after year.

It's just for a few hours on one day a year. I quite like the tradition of it.

I'd rather they stopped showing golf or athletics.

Most of the Beeb are 'Oxbridge Elite' so his elitist theory may have some meaning after all .

What tradition? Tradition that 1% of the population is involved in?

If it's just a few hours per year, surely leaving it out altogether wouldn't matter much?

I find it all sickening. Just like the phoney strawberries and ice cream, at Wimbledon, the stupid hats at Ascot, the Grand National, etc etc. It's not just a few hours now is it?


BTW I would totally agree with the removal of golf from TV.

Hey kittycat,

Don't forget the Stroke - used to sit near the Cox. As his name implies he sets the stroke rate for the rest of the crew!
