    No. It's basically full of normal people, much to the dismay of David Lamay & the Guardian

    The typical types of peope are like you and your school friends - just a year or two older.

    They are just ordinary people, and as new freshers or potential applicants, they wonder if they will fit in too. They almost always do.

    Cambridge and Oxford are simply universities - and a third of the undergraduate cohort changes every year.

    .....and all tabloids and people who haven’t met anyone who is actually at Oxbridge.

    Lammy went to Harvard, and I could name 10 Guardian writers off the top of my head who went to Oxbridge...
