    Newton
    Darwin
    Einstein

    You name them, they went to / had something to do with Oxford or Cambridge.

    If you don't go to go Oxbridge you could end up a loser, just spending your days watching TV

    There were less options available for those people to be fair. There aren't many modern folks we regard as quite so "truly great", Oxbridge or not

    They are not truly great like Newton or Darwin. Richard Branson's name will be forgotten in 200 years. Steve Jobs in 400 years. Newton, Darwin, Churchill, Einstein - never
