You can’t help your background, but David Cameron doesn’t just come from privilege—he is steeped in it, embodies it and reeks of it, and his privileged instincts reveal themselves under the slightest pressure. Maybe there is a way to persuade these kids that they have a place in society and that both it and they can be loyal to each other, but it certainly won’t come from him.

What would one expect of a member of the Bullingdon Club.

Though I was amused last night to learn that Prince Felix Yusupov was a member too.

Once upon a time, the upper class were also the ruling class, and by "ruling" they understood "leading". Patronising and paternalistic it might have been, but at least they had some concept of duty and service to justify their privilege.
