I started to watch the repeat but found that the presenters got on my nerves even more than the first time, including the 'military expert' who didn't seem to be very well informed at all.

You mean I'm not the only one who can't stand this buffoon? :lol:

Am I right in recalling that Cantab B.A's are upgraded to M.A if you survive for a few years after graduation and then send them £50 ! The Ph.d probably requires staying out of jail and taking all your former Professors out for an expensive lunch. :D

(This posting is in no way linked to my failure to get a place at Clare College Cambridge in 1972 after doing the damned entrance exam ! ) :angry:

These comments most unfair to the average buffoon !

As a State Registered Buffoon (1st Class, with Honours) I feel that I am qualified enough to say that that man is a Buffoon, albeit a lower class of Buffoon.

As the proud owner of a Cambridge MA I have to point out that you only pay for them if you don't attend the MA ceremony in person but still want the letters after your name. Mind you if you go in person you have to hire all the wing collar malarkey from Ede and Ravenscroft which costs a packet. At the 'Other Place' I believe you do have to pay whether you turn up or not.
