Second best university, indeed! As the Master of my college, Lord Alan Bullock, noted as I entered, "why would anyone want to send their son, the Prince of Wales" — who entered the other place at the same time — to "one of those newer universities, one that could be certain of the date in was founded."

Hurrah! Thank you Stuart, how nice to get a reaction to that comment, I did hope! I am deeply impressed that you didn't ask which the leading university might be. Nice to hear that Alan living up to his name...
