Re: Formal Dress Forum

I have just been chided for doing up the bottom button of my waistcoat when wearing it with black tie. Is this correct?

I think an IRC quote sums it up:

Re: Summer in St Andrews

Just make sure that you know a few of the other people who are staying up (or that you know people who know people) - I've stayed up 2 summers, one where I barely knew anyone (pants) and one where I had lots of close friends (ace).

Why? Is it of historical significance? Perhaps it is a site of pilgrimage for lunatics? Or did David Brynmor-Thomas lay some sort of freaky masonic curse on it?

Re: Swine flu

In addition to theories about superinfection, Mexico is a) not in possession of the world's greatest healthcare system b) the origin of the infection, so in possession of far more many cases c) the origin of the infection, so caught off guard unlike all the other countries reporting cases, which wer...

I'll take a replacement bus service from the national rail chest and move over to Perivale - unless someone's going to call Routemasters on me!

Re: Former rector dies

I can vaguely recall Sir Clement defining his role to me during freshers week (I'm paraphrasing, although I think he has said this to numerous others): "In the old days, the rector ran the university. If I'd have wanted to, I could have made the entire place into a brothel. Now I just make sure...

Re: The KK - Is this the end for our intrepid duo (and some)??!

Is Owen Wilton actually Stephen Fry in disguise? You're much more verbose when not confined to tweets. The upcoming debate is going to be cracking.

Re: The KK - Is this the end for our intrepid duo (and some)??!

I agree on a few points. They majority of people I've met from the KK were actually very decent people, only coloured by a few bad eggs. I'm happy for them to carry on doing what they do but I don't think it is appropriate for the university to openly support them. Nothing really changes though, and...

Re: The KK - Is this the end for our intrepid duo (and some)??!

You don't expect a sinner thread to remain on point, do you? A bunch of people have posted their opinions on some stuff, it's not like it's a coherent argument or anything.
Agree on the Georgina support. I had coffee with her once and it was generally ace.

Re: The KK - Is this the end for our intrepid duo (and some)??!

I don't believe that this distancing should involve denying this private members' group the right to rent out university property at commercial rates. Would you deny a private members' group that only allowed white people to be members the right to rent out university property at commercial rates? ...

Re: The KK - Is this the end for our intrepid duo (and some)??!

So the reason the KK is to be "dis-affiliated" is because they exclude women, but both Georgina and Andrew have now argued that this move will stop St Andrews as being seen as a "posh elitist", "snobbish" place. Once again I wonder whether the real point here is a gend...

Re: The KK - Is this the end for our intrepid duo (and some)??!

While I am an alumnus (although I regularly contemplate return for an MD or other), I certainly would have happily seen this in my day. What makes me less certain is precisely how this is going to stop the KK being the (unrepresentative) guardian of the traditions of St Andrews? If the parade etc co...

Re: The KK - Is this the end for our intrepid duo (and some)??!

It means she can have them to dinner, and then take them out to events in the town. That's the way it works in American (and I think) Oxbridge colleges. Well yes - each college has a master/president's lodge for just this purpose, although I can't really see Lord Eatwell taking his guests of Queens...

Re: The KK - Is this the end for our intrepid duo (and some)??!

I'm pretty sure the KK will survive, with or without university recognition. All this does is give them a rap on the knuckles about, as Georgina mentioned, being a non-representative group that tries to represent St Andrews. Balls, parades and the like seem to me to be difficult to stop. Well done P...
