Oxbridge here we come! School sees 41 pupils offered top university places.

Good to see that London isn't all knife crime and gang violence.

As I understand it one of the kids is even white!

Doubtless there'll be the usual bitterness, including reference to the wickedness of positive discrimination.

Good luck to these kids, they're tomorrow's elite. Can't do worse than the Old Etonians that people here seem so keen on.

It is positive discrimination though.
Considering that the uk has about a 20% non white population what else could it be.
This is 40 not 4.

Well good luck to them but I would have liked the report to clarify how they were offered places.

Back in the 1970's I applied to Cambridge University, as well as having to get good grades at A level I had to sit an entrance exam. My school had never done this and I failed it because they didn't prepare me and I wasn't bright enough. However schools that took that route spent a year preparing for the entrance exam whilst I had a couple of weeks.

Anyway no excuses I wasn't good enough my point is if they passed entrance exams then it doesn't matter what colour they were or what their background they got their by merit and well done them.

There were other routes into Cambridge which were not as equitable "my father knows your father" etc. I have no idea if that still goes on today.

Anyway if they got their by merit I wish them luck and just wished the journalist had spelled that out.

Affirmative action is real racism.

Anything that accepts a lower standard to address some kind of social justice is the beginning of the end of true meritocracy.

This cancer infects the STEM field now. Far left politics is dominant in both the IT tech field and in the world of physics.

It isn't about being the best.....It's about being the best from what is politically correct.

The East Asians are laughing at us.....and in respect of affirmative action they are also suing....and I back them.

Affirmative action.

Why do BBC and sky have so many female football experts talking on the prem ?

Do you have blokes advising on changing nappies on the childcare programmes ?

I thought that was fairly obvious as most footie viewers are male and it combines men's love of footie and t1ts into one programme

Its the law. Public Sector Equality Duty to which the Corp are expressly subject. Another hoop the Beeb have to jump through to get their Charter. Why there are endless female sports presenters, a black lesbian companion to Dr Who and incessant chip-wrap on equal pay. And why much of BBC's prime time output is now unwatchable.
