Stuffed with the over-privileged


















The Front Court of Kings College Cambridge.

The statue is of King Henry VI who founded the college at the same time as he founded Eton College and endowed both institutions with a complicated grant of lands recorded in the Rotuli Parliamentorum.

The duel foundation represents a sophisticated educational project aimed at "poor scholars" although now both colleges are stuffed with the over-privileged.
