Swimming in the Thames is indeed silly. It's a lot cleaner than it was fifty years ago, but there are still loads of dodgy bacteria in the water! Didn't David Walliams do a charity swim of its whole length and have to go to hospital with a nasty bug after he swallowed some water?

There's not a few "elite" schools who'll offer a member of the working class a full scholarship if they can turn to an oar particularly well. Here in the US, becoming a rower seems to be more of a question of whether one lives in a region where the sport has traction. (The running joke hereabouts when they first started the swimming 'Round Manhattan Race' was "Last one to dissolve, wins.")

Well ,this right wing hooray tosser lives in Henley on Thames ,where people , many of them "working class" (whatever that is ) can be seen out on the river , enjoying the sport of rowing ,as they have been able to do for many years without having to have been educated at Oxford or Cambridge ,or indeed any "elitist" University . It is entirely possible ,in fact ,that many of them were , like me , born in a Victorian terraced house with no bathroom ,and an outside toilet, but who were able , nevertheless , to get through life without having a huge chip on their shoulders about "the rich" ,elitism , or the inherent unfairness of life in the Real World .
       I would like to add that I don't row myself,nor do I follow it or even attend the Henley Regatta that is on my doorstep ,and am currently subsisting on a small Naval pension,and "Pension Credit" and Housing Benefit ,from The State. But I don't see much to complain about ; there are more important things in life.

Any of the left wingers here prepared to give solid data as to the number of students who get to Oxford or Cambridge, solely by dint of being rich?

As I understand it, the academic qualifications would suggest that only the most intelligent get in, whether rich or poor.

So I suppose that the elitist force you are all objecting to is Mother Nature?

Whilst I agree that elitism does lead to tyranny and I have no objection to peaceful civil disobedience, I think this was a fruitless, thoughtless and rather pathetic protest that, quitefrankly, seems to smack of way to gain personal notoriety rather than achive any defined aim.

Now, organised protest at the ludicrous and expensive jubilee celebrations will be a much more worthwhile demonstration against elitism.

Come on Don!!
While education has moved on from Richard Attenborough's 'The Guinea Pig' days, higher education is still very much a privilege in Britain; even if the need for an extra wage packet for some families wasn't still a major factor, crippling fees and the need for student loans have made sure of that, as well as a whole load of other factors.

I very nearly posted to the 'my favourite teacher' thread, our science teacher Mr Cobban of Speke Secondary Modern, (a typical factory-fodder factory) who told me a year before I left school, "the only thing you need to know when you leave here is how to tot up your wages at the end of the week" - with that statement he made me determined that it wasn't all I needed to know.
Higher education is still very much the domain of the privileged in practice, if no longer in theory.

is it a good thing that many students will never repay their loans because there no real jobs for young people anymore? phrases like 'usual lefty claptrap' make me smile (i am trying to give up getting angry) on every level the system we have is failing the vast majority of people in every country and has done for ever. the current version of capitalism is patently obscene and destructive-subjecting the world to work (or die) for the benefit of a few ultra rich predators. the stupidity is we let them do this to us and every time someone tries to question if this is the best way of doing things there are plenty of brain-dead establishment lackeys to point the finger and dismiss any more hopeful and imaginative ideas as 'the usual lefty claptrap.' sure, some protests (and protesters) may be naive and foolish but these are trivial incidents in comparison to greed,sectarianism,racism and war.

The Boat Race Elitist? I should cocoa. According to the news, the two teams had been practicing flat out for the previous seven months. Surely that would entail neglecting their studies? Well, it must do because you can't row a boat and read Immanuel Kant at the same time.

Remember the days when left wing students were accused of neglecting their studies to demonstrate against racism, capitalism etc. What was the cry that used to go up from the tory press and the tory party? "Wasting taxpayers money".

Alright for some it seems.

No I haven't - I'm proud to be a member of a class whose labours and skills provide the essentials of everyday living and without whom our society would grind to a halt tomorrow.
The financial and practical burdens of higher education have been insurmounable barriers for virtually every family I have known throughout my life - even recognised by the term 'underprivileged' - education being one of the major privileges out of our reach.
Having said which - not sure I find the unarguable 'privilege' a barrier towards my enjoyment of the Boat Race. I saw most of them live when I lived in West London and enjoyed the atmosphere there
I do find your man's protest a little unfathomable - not that I'm against such actions - I feel my life would have been that much poorer without the efforts of Erica Rowe.

The sport of rowing has contributed significantly to our understanding of the human cardiovascular system. There's some very interesting work done recently around age-predicted maximum heart rates that suggests that the old "220 - age" and similar formulas may not apply in the cases of well-trained athletes. Until now, they'd been thought of as pretty much as inevitable as death and taxes. Rowers work as hard and intensely as track and field athletes, but they do so sitting down. Where a runner might just fall down when they hit a certain point, the rower will probably work deeper into his cardiovascular limit, and find it sooner. In my own experience, there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that can push my heart rate to the wall sooner, and allow me to hold it for longer, than the rowing machine in the gym. Even the stair-mill, which is second best, doesn't come close. So while the external trappings of the sport may be socio-economically "elitist" the athletes themselves ought not to be taken lightly at all.

(blood 'sport' is another matter mind you) i have nothing but admiration and pity for the poor souls who die in wars but do feel justified in feeling 'venom and hatred' to the men who so often send the young to die and kill. as long as we all continue to put our faith in religious rulers or vote for politicians who lack compassion and intelligence, and exploit us by urging us to hate each other, then our world is not going to improve much-despite the best efforts of many millions of people with generosity of spirit.

Thread drift coming on.
Donleavy was a neighbour in Dublin to Brendan Behan while he was working on 'The Beastly Beatitudes of Balthazar B'.
He went out, leaving the manuscript on the table, open at a page with heavy crossings-out.
He returned to find the French windows had been forced, but when he checked, the only evidence he could find of the intruder was a bottle of whisky missing from the sideboard and a scrawled note across the manuscript saying "leave it in".

Hi Peter. Delightful to hear your dulcet tones again - glad your flood experiences haven't dampened your political ardour (as if!).

Personlly, I've come to the conclusion that the only answer to elitism is anarchism. The more you delve into it, the more sense it makes (well, some of it).

Regardless of their background, what I do respect about the boat race teams is the huge amount of commitment and physical pain that it takes to reach that standard of fitness (been there - didn't get close - got the fucked-up joints)

"......from sunny Malaga with the new Albion Band loud on my headphones! Bonzo"

Ah, I love Malaga - my parents used to go there for a couple of monthe each winter because it was cheaper than staying in England. Are there still the litle back-street bars where they chalk the tab on the wooden bar in front of you? Anyway, I've just finished a nice chilled bottle of Morrison's Fino with a delightful lunch with my kids, son's girlfriend and my mother-in-law whose been telling me of her disdain for the Windsors following her war-time experiences of being bombed out and having to listen to their "we're all in this together" shit (some things neverchange!). Still rancours even though she's now in her 80s.
