And what the fuck is a statement ruffle?
Isn't it a move in Mornington Crescent which allows you to exchange one of each colour chip in play to bring a line out of Spoon?

So last years Cambridge University ball shenanigans revolved very much around the students getting drunk after an all nighter. Naturally the Mailites were not impressed by such debauchery and here are some of the top rated comments:

This year it's being portrayed as a more sober affair:

That's more like it. Surely the Mailites will approve of this more reserved behaviour, right?

Whilst no doubt completely ignoring the coked-up privileged cunts from Eton and Oxford now vying to run the fucking country.

Yesterday the Mailites were sneering at the "boring snowflakes" for not getting drunk. So the Mail have rerun it and this time they've gone with a different angle. The 'drunk students' angle.

School's out! Cambridge students celebrate the end of their exams with fireworks, a five-course feast and champagne reception at £345-a-ticket May Ball

Unlike any of the above, the festive young people have all passed a tough entry exam and are pursuing level 6 or 7 qualifications.

Not to mention the miserable Mailites would switch places with the festive young people in a heartbeat if they could.

Of course students never got lashed up at the end term in the past. Ever.
When I lived in Oxford (late 80s) I knew a man who'd been a student there in the 1930s, (he was a contemporary of Ted Heath and Denis Healey and knew them both). He was scathing of modern students' celebrations as they were so tame compared to his day. He used to entertain with tales of drunken skinny dipping at Parson's Pleasure and placing chamber pots on lightning conductors and then attempting to shoot them down with his father's WW1 service revolver.
All thoroughly reckless of course (not to mention bloody dangerous), but I suspect the Mailtards would forgive him because, shortly afterwards, he commanded a tank squadron in North Africa and Normandy and was so reckless and dangerous he was awarded an MC for his efforts.

Yes, a quick read of Evelyn Waugh backs that up. Rugger buggers debagging sensitives and throwing them in the fountains.

I think it's in the Meaning of Liff, an entry that is "the suspicion that somewhere, someone else is having a good time".

They also prove extremely keen to vote for the small proportion that appear on ballot papers.

Isaiah Berlin talked, IIRC, of hiding an aesthete in a cupboard, to protect him from a gang of 'hearties' who wanted to beat him up.

But they all talked posh, so, y'know.
