    You'd be surprised if they do have them now. You also find such people voicing their opinions on social media. I hear a new story once a week on twitter
    I can assure they still don't exist there. The uni is majority Tory with a hint of UKIP.

    Not a chance. It is the uni that time forgot.
    I was the first Equality Officer they ever had, that says a lot. Ethnically I would say that it is about 95% white. No FemSoc, no LGBT soc, certainly no ISOC.

    It catered to what the students wanted. A student bar and pub. Parties every Wednesday, live acts, cheap alcohol and 4 themed black tie balls a year. Think Young Farmers (you probably haven't heard of them) mixed with students. One of the top ranking universities for student satisfaction and employment.

    It caters to the sons of gentlemen farmers and landowners. The type of people that don't play rugby - they play "rugger"

    Those types of students really don't give a flying f for LGBT societies.

    Farmers are usually not like city dwelling people anyway so they probably wouldn't care about many things we see everyday in our cities.

    Sounds excellent. Do they have drag acts and vicars and tarts parties? I love that sort of thing. I bet the rugby society plays the soggy digestive game and drinks their own pi$$ for fun. I know the type!

    They're definitely different. They always talk about the north-south divide but I think the urban-rural divide is much larger; especially when money and "breeding" gets thrown into the mix.

    Your rural red-trouser wearing, Barber-coated, 'hee haw Henry" (or Henrieta) has nothing in common with your middle class urbanite. They might as well be from another planet.

    The university was recently in the Daily Mail for the Strippers Night. I think that says everything it needs to.

    They care about things that matter, not silly student politics.

    They care about the price of potash, increasing crop yield, and the start of pheasant season. There's no LGBT society but there's a damned good Hellfire Club! These are the type of people that grew up playing British Bulldog in private schools rather than contributing to Blue Peter's Bring n Buy Sale to help those fuzzy wuzzies in Ethiopia.
