Cambridge universities have done much to take
images (14)


Oxford and students from poorer backgrounds and state schools, but not nearly enough. Apart from being denied access to world-class education (Cambridge and Oxford are ranked fifth and sixth globally) they will find it harder to reach the top of many professions: 24% of MPs, 54% of print journalists (38% of Guardian journalists in 2011), 82% of barristers, 78% of judges, and nine of the 11 justices of the supreme court went to either Oxford or Cambridge. There should be much greater transparency of the admissions process, including giving feedback to schools on rejected students and having lay advisers present at interviews and panels.

• In four years as a mentor for the Social Mobility Foundation (a charity which helps bright students from low-income families gain access to good universities), I have observed one major obstacle to entry that David Lammy does not mention – schools’ failure to give decent advice on what A-level subjects to take. In my sample of four, all have had the wrong subjects for the courses applied for. This has placed them at a major disadvantage.

• David Lammy is quite right to raise the question of the restrictive character of Oxbridge recruitment. However, the fuss around this is surely misplaced. The real problem lies in the lack of diversity in the British establishment and the Oxbridge aspiration to be the nursery through which that establishment reproduces itself. Like love and marriage, Oxbridge can’t have the latter without the former.

“No. Did you?” The prince smiledbest deals. “Do all dwarfs have tongues like yours? Someone is going to cut it out one of these days.” “You are not the first to tell me that. Perhaps I should cut it out myself, it seems to make no end of trouble.” “So I’ve seen. I think I may drink some of Lord Redwyne’s grape juice after all.” “As you like.” Tyrion served him a cup. The man took a sip, sloshed it about in his mouth, and swallowed. “it will serve, for the moment. I will send you up some strong Dornish wine on the morrow.” He took another sip. “I have turned up that golden haired whore I was hoping for.” “So you found Chataya’s?” “At Chataya’s I bedded the black-skinned girl. Alayaya Profertil hk I believe she is called. Exquisite, despite the stripes on her back. But the whore I referred to is your sister.” “Has she seduced you yet?” Tyrion asked, unsurprised. Oberyn laughed aloud Profertil hk,. “No, but she will if I meet her price. The queen has even hinted at marriage. Her Grace needs another husband, and who better than a prince of Dorne? Ellaria believes I should accept. Just the thought of Cersei in our bed makes her wet, the randy wench. And we should not even need to pay the dwarf’s penny. All your sister requires from me is one head, somewhat overlarge and missing a nose.” “And?” said Tyrion, waiting. By way of answer Prince Oberyn swirled his wine, and said, “When the Young Dragon conquered Dorne so long ago, he left the Lord of Highgarden to rule us after the Submission of Sunspear. This Tyrell moved with his tail from keep to keep, chasing rebels and making certain that our knees stayed bent. He would arrive in force, take a castle for his own, stay a moon’s turn, and ride on to the next castle. It was his custom to turn the lords out of their own chambers and take their beds for himself. One night he found himself beneath a heavy velvet canopy. A sash hung down near the pillows, should he wish to summon a wench. He had a taste for Dornish women, this Lord Tyrell, and who can blame him? So he pulled upon the sash, and when he did the canopy above him split open, and a hundred red scorpions fell down upon his head. His death lit a fire that soon swept across Dorne, undoing all the Young Dragon’s . The kneeling men stood up, and we were free again.” “I know the tale,” said Tyrion. “What of it?” “Just this, if I should ever find a sash beside my own bed, and pull on it, I would sooner have the scorpions fall upon me than the queen in all her naked beauty.” Tyrion grinned. “We have that much in common, then.” “To be sure, I have much to thank your sister for. If not for her accusation at the feast, it might well be you judging me instead of me judging you.”
