Book 29 An Oxford Sort: [Carys]

Rich, posh, snobby, arrogant, elitist, upper-class, smart-ass, privileged, brats.  Oxford students have had their lives handed to them on a plate, from prep-school latin classes to an education with Prince Will in a tailcoat and top hat.  Oxford is a continuation of boarding-school life, and mummy and daddy had always presented it as something of a natural right (well they did pay for the library annexe).  Terms are spent consuming Bolinger, cocaine and caviar, bullying the poor kids (they let them in to shut up the Guardian), punting while paying someone else to actually do the degree and dreaming of power that family connections will one day deliver.
