    First Oxford, then Cambridge, now Harvard. Next they will be calling for all-18-year-old shortlists in Parliament and demanding that Shake it off is made the National Anthem in line with changing attitudes.

    I wonder how many of contemporary society's problems originate in the total lack of leadership which the older generations are capable of commanding. The baby boomers need to man up and stop laying down for every student that croaks.

    No offence

    Harvard has not agreed that the use of "master" represented a link to slavery, but it has accepted the campaigners' calls for a name change.
    Why, Harvard!? Why are you capitulating to the demands of these whiny crybabies, demands that you yourselves agree are competely baseless? All this will do is encourage these morons even further. Draw the line somewhere for Christ's sake, grow some balls and tell these entitled brats to go and **** themselves.

    That is completely ****ing ridiculous. I would have told the campaigners to **** off and do something productive.
