Educated Cambridge University arses.


James Dellingpole see’s much virtue in Katie from Sidney Sussex’s pert bottom

When I was at university the students were revolting they celebrated and delighted in being transgressive Sadly that is no longer the case.

Can naked bottoms really be that socio-politically significant? Oh very much so, I’d say. Especially to anyone who has just read the quite monumentally depressing cover story from this week’s Spectator by Brendan O’Neill.  His argument is that political correctness has become so heavily entrenched in academe that our seats of learning are in serious danger of abandoning perhaps their most important function: opening up developing minds to new ideas and experiences.

If your go-to image of a student is someone who’s free-spirited and open-minded, who loves having a pop at orthodoxies, then you urgently need to update your mind’s picture bank. Students are now pretty much the opposite of that. It’s hard to think of any other section of society that has undergone as epic a transformation as students have. From freewheelin’ to ban-happy, from askers of awkward questions to suppressors of offensive speech, in the space of a generation


A worthy and witty post that I commend to readers of the Sandpit

Cheers  Comrades

    That is certainly one great looking arse, Iain. I think you should have used the same title you had for one of your other recent posts – “A nice ride”.

    Btw, as promised I’ve put up a post on the big news you’ve kept silent about. You know, how a Coalition Govt was thrown out after just one term. Well done Victoria:


  3. Iain Hall says:

    Why should I write about something that you are more qualified to address than I am?

  4. Ray Dixon says:

    You’d have written about it if Denis the political bully boy had won, Iain.
