Update – After abusive and threatening comments on this post I have decided to disallow comments from now. I had hoped to start a dialogue but alas it wasn’t to be…
My rant for the morning.. Why are people so surprised about yet another death of a King’s College pupil, these kids come from the best of homes and from day one not only have they been given every opportunity and freedom, but they seem to have been imbued with an attitude that they are the golden children. What they seem not to have been given however is any perspective about their lives and hence they live in a social butterfly world of limos, parties, alcohol and drugs.
Just because rich lister hosts a pre-ball party for them and puts on a fleet of limos to get them from there to the ball itself doesn’t dispute the fact that these are 17 year old kids who are being invited to live like adults, unfortunately without the skill set to do so.
Yes it’s a tragedy, but perhaps King’s should look inwards and think about building young people of character rather than sanctioning some kind of prep school for the rich and famous.
