the streets of oxford in 'not paved with gold' shocker

from the obits page of today's independent:

"in 1933 [sir stuart] hampshire went up to balliol [college] to read greats; even in oxford there were children with bare feet in the middle of winter and everyone was aware that food was being destroyed for lack of a market while poor people were going hungry..."

obviously the writer believes that everyone in and around oxford is fantastically wealthy or he studied at the university and never left his college's walls.

or he is incapable of thinking.

this gives me an excuse to drone on a little about class war (not the organisation) in oxford when i get a little time...
