What Would Happen If Somebody Completely Destroyed Oxbridge? watch

    • Thread Starter

    A friend of mine was extremely (and I mean extremely) disappointed that he was rejected from Cambridge and he made a really ridiculous and outrageous comment, something along the lines of "If I don't get to be Prime Minister, nobody will!" - He wanted to do PPS and had very (very!) high hopes for the future - but the comment was quite OTT.

    So, it got me thinking - what would occur if the entire campuses of Oxford and Cambridge were destroyed - say in a freak terrorist attack or something?? Would we then get a Prime Minister from a different stock? (Having said that, Gordon Brown did go to Edinburgh.) What would happen to all of the future Justices, top barristers etc?? - would they all now have to come from different unis other than Oxbridge? Many things would be highly different?? How different would the Britain/the world be??
