    Rhodes wasn't a racist, he was a typical Empire building Englishman!
    Please remember that racism didn't exist, most isms are the inventions of the loony lefty hand wringing tofu munching yoghurt knitting Guardian readers!

  5. Will Oxford SU also be campaigning to remove the following statue.
    Yes he did many good things later but his career and success was founded upon inciting and carrying out violent attacks on people based on ethnicity.
    So if that condemns Mr Rhodes it condemns him as well.

    Somehow I get the feeling Oxford S.U wont be joining in this campaign.

  8. Founded to educate clerics for the Holy Roman Catholic church of the whole of Europe, including those nice chaps in France who slaughtered a load of "heretics", slaughtered a load of Muslims and Jews in Spain for not converting, then for converting but not good enough, then slaughtered pagans in the Baltic states because they didn't convert, then slaughtered everything in the Middle East they could reach because they could.....

    Are they offering to hand back the money AND the degree and the place at Oxford and the network contacts they've made ?

  11. Careful, you might give the Oxford SU the idea to rename them to "Mandela Scholarships"

  13. He was certainly of the view that the british would make a much better job of running africa than africans would.

    In light of the state of the place these days since we left some might argue that realist is more appropriate than the rather kicked to death 'racist'.
