David Cameron, 1986. (via sugaredvenom)
Cameron and BoJo were a part of the Bullingdon club, which is an exclusive social club whose members are usually drawn from the students of Oxford University. Trashing establishments was regularly a part of their group entertainment.
I’m not going to pretend that people are unwilling to admit symmetricality between the phenomenon of the Bullingdon club’s trashing and the London riots. Obviously they didn’t have the numbers to effect destruction on the same scale. But the general narrative is that it’s okay - if a little tiresome - when a dozen posh white blokes desecrate a restaurant. That’s just young rich bored people larking about. But if they were a dozen young black and poor men, well, that’s just what happens when you give opportunities to the underclasses - they bite the hand that feeds them! /sarcasm
Things got out of hand and we’d had a few drinks. We smashed the place up and Boris set fire to the toilets.
