Hereditary monarchy is silly, but hereditary university admissions is sillier.

Foreign entrants won't emerge. Ireland isn't a big enough market to be interesting, except in cases when there's a "Europe wide property bubble, initially centred on Ireland" going on.

Yes, although if you look at the London operation of JPM today, the blue bloods came out pretty well. Some of them are genuinely impressive people.

I actually like the British media, I even read some political commentators, but my god they are determined to make fools of themselves.

And as I say, a significant baby step that the media could make would be to just bring the amount of actual, literal nepotism down to a manageable level.

Own your bullshit guys. The people at Cazenove were much more upfront. "Yep, we're posh and we like it that way. We allow plebs like you in for specialist skills, Davies, but to be honest if there was anyone posh who could do the job we'd never have hired to you"

'Splain me some more... "Actually, the problem is NOT that the industry is full of self-regarding posh kids. The ACTUAL problem is that the industry has set up a load of structures to keep out anyone but self-regarding posh kids ACTUALLY".

Day 5 of British media's relentless march into self-own immolation, and the 'splains are coming out. Nope, as a veteran of the banking industry, I do not agree that lucrative paid internships and higher salaries are the way to increase working class representation.

Honestly, this is one of the most important pieces of I've read in a long time from . "The golden rule of working in the media: never show the others their own reflection. Even though that’s what they do to everyone else all day.”

Just 16 years after the Choctaw Native Americans were forced off their land onto the "Trail of Tears," they raised $170 of their own money—worth tens of thousands of dollars today—in aid for people during the Irish famine. This monument in Cork, Ireland honors the Choctaw Nation.
