    Anyone else think this is just playing off a stereotype and caricatures? Hardly a balanced show, it is very Daily Mail!

    It'd be nice if that was so. OCA are that bad.

    Actually, student politics is that bad.

    I disagree! I am a member of the Conservative Party and I can honestly say that I am not, in any way shape or form, like that. I am a member as a hobby and, unlike some of the people on that program, I still need a very normal life...

    It scares me to think these people may be running the country one day. It scares me even more that there ARE people running the country that were once like that!

    All I got from that was who the hell is excited over selecting the cheese for a weekly meet. Honestly that showed the torries in such a bad light. Hopefully will convince some people away from voting for them, kinda shows why the current politians think the way they do.

    They are so up themselves, thinking that all they are doing is important, when one of them even said that they have no power, and it was good that they didn't.

    This is why I don't want to go to a prestigious university, would rather go to one which is good now, not just based on its past.

    I just felt really sorry for them both by the end.
    The guy from cambridge was very naive, I felt awful for him when the chairman said he'd "lost" his application form.
    They lacked self confidence and social skills, and it was clear that the programme was basically just taking the mick out of them.

    Party politics is not a cool kids game and no-one does it for the money, lol. However, I think the show is purposefully slating the tories. It's like doing a show on student Labour supporters and choosing the social activists, or hippie lib dems.

    The guys in the show weren't upper class. I think in some cases the power of the very wealthy is overrated (such as illuminati rumours) and underrated in others.

    Middle class and above
    Oxford and cambridge
    Politics Degrees
    Socially inept

    I know they weren't, the upper classes wouldn't appear in such programmes anyway.


    The power of the very wealthy is hidden, you just don't know how much money they have tucked away offshore. Trust me, with that money comes huge influence.

    Both of them went to state school, and one of them was definately working class (single mother, dad in prison).
    One was studying law
    They werent socially inept, they just werent part of the 'in' crowd. Mainly down to other students' attitudes.

    Did I watch a different show to everybody else? I thought that it improved the conservatives image. It showed that there are exceptions.

    I don't understand why everyone is so anti-Conservative, I'm very borderline middle class but it's incredibly beneficial, things have just gotten better since Labour. I don't see so much hate on the working class :s

    I'll be sure to check this show out, looks really interesting.

    I agree on that. The wealth of the upper class is tied up in different things and difficult to quantify. That and the fact personal wealth is never spoken of.
