    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it

    Again, that's in America though and has no relevance to folk in the UK, Scotland or Dundee.

    This is interesting though:

    Among state school youngsters not on free school meals, 45% go on to higher education by the age of 19. Those more disadvantaged students, eligible for free school meals, have a lower entry rate of 26%.

    But for "male, white British, free school meals" pupils, the figure is 13% - even lower than the year before, and to put it in context, it's below "looked after" children who have been in council care and far below those speaking English as a second language.

    This figure of 13% is stuck in another era compared with the success stories of other groups, such as black students, with 59% progressing to higher education, and 64% of Asian students.

    For sixth formers in independent schools, 85% make the step forward into higher education.

    So as I said long ago, wealth is a bigger factor in inequality than "race".

    Agreed.

    The problem is that it gets imported here and given 'relevance' by identity hustling hucksters, aided and abetted by virtue-signalling public masses, institutions, corporations, organisations. This bull**** is infesting everywhere.

    100%

    Yet (and partially because) all the leg-ups are for 'oppressed' groups such as women and 'BAME'.

    Which goes back to the main point - modern identity politics is radical, an attack on a) men and boys, b) white people, c) the West. It's nothing to do with equality or any such notions of 'fairness', if it ever was.

    Just coincidental that those are the ones that have had an advantage over the rest then?

    And in the West where privilege, wealth, old money types, were predominantly white males. They've given 'a leg up' to their own for centuries, the old school tie brigade.

    Aah. I think you and Geckoman were “speaking” at crossed purposes then.

    They still do that, as is seen in the final stat in that quote. But poor white people are still left behind along with poor everyone else.
