    It is well known the media, especially the Telegraph, have a bias towards Oxbridge but yesterday's article was scraping the barrel:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education...an-poorer-pee/
    "According to the figures, more than 10 per cent of men who graduated from Oxford, Cambridge and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) were earning more than £100,000 10 years after graduating."
    The spin they put on is unbelieveable!

    Why did they underline Oxbridge, I have no idea.

    Actually, LSE grads earn the most:

    but it would kill the Telegraph to admit that.

    Top universities in the UK and yet only 10% of male graduates are earning more than 100k a year, ten years out? That's nothing to sing about.

    It was underlined because it was a link to another article. Try removing your ideological glasses for a second.

    There's an unofficial rule that DT must mention Oxbridge on a daily basis, hence the need to link to another article.
