The only two non-Russell Groups that match up to the required standard are St Andrews and Bath. All the others are nowhere near close, and would significantly taint the prestige of the Russell Group as a whole if they were to be accepted.
Don't be pretentious.

That's never been a requirement. LSE was in the original group.
There have never been any 'requirements' apart from an in invite. I suspect LSE's UoL credentials overcame the med school issue. Suffice to say, when I worked with an RG VC and Head of UUK, the discussion was that no uni without a med school was likely to be allowed to join. Imperial is another outlier, because a 'full range of courses' ie not being a specialist institution is also a 'requirement' that isn't a requirement.

The Russel Group is basically a union of universities to discuss research and future policy making. It's sort of just a club. They have accepted new members in the past, and while I don't know what the criteria are, yes a regular uni can become part of it if the others think it is worth their time.

And i want to stop all this **** talking against Cardiff, Liverpool, QUB, and QMUL. Someone coming out of ANY ONE of those with a 2.1 in History will be held to the EXACT same regard as someone coming out with a 2.1 in History from Bristol and Durham. Literally no employer gives a **** over your rankings and weird ways of measuring what "best" is. All of them are old established unis that by and large produce capable graduates.

Correct

And my post was merely pointing out that Lboro fully deserves to be considered alongside all those good universities.

Not sure which of the following are correct:

The other RG universities can gang up an exclude a member;
or
Decisions have to be unanimous, in which case no university is going to agree to expel itself from the RG
