Re: East Ridng rural village under threat

I asked the warden about the incident and was told it happens on a regular basis somewhere on the site! Where I live I see it on almos...

Re: Oxbridge Elite Or Intelligent

.......The issue with Oxbridge is not that it's academically elite, it's that it's *not* sufficiently academically elite but rather both deliberately and inadvertently socially elite.
