    News from the BBC

    A Heart-warming Gesture from a "Rapper"

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-45206266


    With fees and maintenance costs for four students for a four-year course, this will cost Stormzy a cool 500k.

    Well done him!


    Yesterday we heard that Rod Stewart is auctioning off some of his furniture (real "tatt", BTW) - I saw no mention of the proceeds going to charity?!!

    Not standing up for rod, as I can't bare sight of the 'leotarted lothario'. But, I suspect 'stormzy' hasn't got as many ex wives to support as Rodney.
    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    Interestingly, most of his 'furniture' up for auction is covered in tasteless fake cheetah skin!

    Just imagine the headlines if a british white singer did a scholarship for white students! Maybe just being a bit grumpy at the moment but it's a bit racist if you ask me!

    On the other hand, it might be worth pointing out that in the whole of Cambridge University there are only seven black undergraduates.

    Any addition to this number is therefore real news.

    They will indeed have the grades, but not the 25k per annum required to study and live in Cambridge.

    Cambridge University has a very high proportion of undergraduates from privileged backgrounds.
