David Cameron’s former Oxford drinking society has been ‘banned’ by university Tories

CAMERON'S CLUB 'BAN'

The infamous Bullingdon club has been put on a 'proscribed organisations' list by Oxford University's Conservative Association

DAVID Cameron’s former Oxford drinking society has been “banned” by the university’s Tories.

They say the Bullingdon Club’s “values and activities have no place” in the student group’s ranks.

The Oxford University Conservative Association put the society on a list of “proscribed organisations”, meaning members cannot hold a senior OUCA position.

The Bullingdon is renowned for producing leading Tories, with former PM Cameron, Boris Johnson and George Osborne all ex-members.

But OUCA president Ben Etty said: “I hope this will show we’re moving towards a more open, welcoming, and tolerant environment for all.”

Another member said: “Membership of the Bullingdon shows a lack of judgement - they could put the party at serious risk of embarrassment through their actions or association.

“In the past it was more of a ‘nod and wink’, there was a mutual understanding that they could get involved so long as they didn’t do anything stupid.

“Now they’d be turned away at the door without hesitation.”

The notorious all-male Bullingdon, glamorised in the 2014 film Riot Club, was founded in 1780.

The university said it is “pleased to see reports the club is in decline”.
