I saw a job agency for ethnic minorities the other day, and also a few job adverts saying "disabled people are guaranteed interviews". Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks positive discimination is as bad as racism/sexism/etc itself !

It's worse, we live in a DEMOCRACY...democracy by definition is majority rule. Yet for some reason...minorities seem to be getting everything nowadays.

What exactly are your GCSE and AS level grades?

By going by your other choices that you posted last night, it sounds like you need a miracle.

I think you've got a very warped sense about what the true spirit of democracy really is.

Why did you bother putting down LSE? You're quite clearly wasting your and their time, not to mention you lose out one of your chances.

What I'm confused about is how a EUU student would know so much about universities.

They haven't accepted you either. Although an "E" is a pass it's hardly what LSE are after. What do you call "great"? You realise that universities don't only look at AS level results? They also look at GCSEs (they're more biased towards good GCSE results).
