Are there students who went to public school - yes
Are there immature students, who get drunk and act foolishly - yes
Are some of them minted - yes
Is this the case at other unis - yes

The overwhelming majority are normal students, the average Oxford student has a middle class background.

Even in the hayday of the Bullingdon club when Cameron & Osbourne were running the show they were a dozen students at a uni with like 20,000 students.

Its foolish to read into this rhetoric imo. Every uni has there handful of idiots, just the way it is when you have that many people in one community.

Maybe in the tiny, tiny minority. After the film, the Bullingdon dwindled to almost nothing. It really isn't something your average Oxford student would want to have anything to do with (just like you and I).
