What other purpose could his insane shot at Oxford serve but to gather the mouth breathing anti-intellectuals in Britain to his side?
British Prime Minister David Cameron made headlines on Monday when he criticized Oxford University for their “disgraceful” minority admissions statistics. Cameron, who is an Oxford graduate, claimed that only one black person was admitted to the University in the past year. “We have got to do better than that,” said Cameron at a Q & A session in the North of England. Oxford responded immediately, calling Cameron’s assertion “incorrect and highly misleading.” According to figures the university provided to the media, the school actually accepted 27 black students between 2009 and 2010. Oxford also stated that only 542 black students received high enough A-level scores to be considered for admission in 2009, and that most black students apply for commonly over-enrolled courses, such as medicine.
Politicians- they’re even greasy and deceptive in other countries.
