This is why I'm not sure what this story is all about.

Anyone can apply to either university with the necessary grades. One of my daughter's friends went to Cambridge and she was from an average background. She had the grades.
What puts people off applying is the impression that they won't fit into an environment of privilege and elitism.

Perhaps different now but people I know from "normal " backgrounds had a miserable time. They were ostracised by the very people you mention and clung for dear life to small like minded groups.

They also got the highest marks.

Contentious? Only by those who prefer make believe.

Look at the highest earners in the west......Look at which groups make up the higher proportions, relative to population size, in the most mentally demanding professions.

It links to academic performance.....these things aren't accidents.

I'm not sure I appreciate all this subterfuge. If you're talking about the Jews then just say so. Then we won't waste time.

PS Armenians also rank rather high.

Jews? Only one type of Jew....and good luck to them. I'm rather partial to that aspect....but that type of Jew only top the list for one form of intelligence anyway. East Asians top the most important form....well in my view the most important.

My angle isn't about specific groups.....it's about my anger at social constructionists.....those who advanced the 'blank slate' and literally harmed and continue to harm generations of people.

Which type of Jew would that be? And for which type of intelligence does that type of Jew score highly?

When you say East Asian are you referring to all the peoples of the far east? And which is the more important form of intelligence that they possess?

The blank slate thing we can come back to if you don't mind. But for what it's worth I agree that you can't polish a turd.

Ashkenazi Jews have the highest IQ average amongst Jews for high verbal and mathematical intelligence but interestingly they don't score well for spatial intelligence.

East Asians is a term used for ethnic groups that are indigenous to East Asia, which consists of Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, and Taiwan.....mathematical and visual-spatial intelligence.

Like I say when you look at the breakdown of groups within the hardest mentally demanding professions you will see these groups over representated by population size......It's not a good nor bad thing....It's nature with nurture aspects.....though some argue that beneficial nurture is itself evidence of the evolution of successful genetics.

Bottom line
A pound to a pinch of s*** these were not the most academically equipped kids to go to oxbridge.
It was positive discrimination and to not admit that is wrong.
Just come out and say we are giving places to disadvantaged kids because it is politically correct in the present environment.
Theyre just about to hang wayne hennesy ffs.
Dont mind all the holier than though actions for that do they.

...but it seems people can be rather envious of said "turd".

Thanks for that insight, which given the complete absence of evidence says so much more about you than it does about a whole load of people that none of us have ever met.

Well in the case of Jews at least, I had kind of noticed that yes.

But what this information hasn't taken into consideration is virtue (sorry I'm now going off on a bit of a tangent). As I'm sure you would agree, it's what you do with all that innate intelligence that matters.

I'd rather welcome a virtuous thicky into my country than an intelligent b******.

Well...Yes...to an extent I'd agree.

But too many thickies, virtuous or not and you have a problem.

We had enough of our own to begin with.

Agreed but it's hard to tell how people will turn out when they're still children and the IQ of their parents isn't going to offer any clues.

I've known some utterly reprehensible Jews. And some very wonderful ones.

But to be play devil's advocate for a minute I might argue that too many intelligent b******s is equally bad.
