The Bullingdon Club

I don’t usually made political predictions, but 
if there is one reason David Cameron might crash 
and burn, it is the above photo–a picture taken 
in 1987 at Brasenose College, Oxford which 
Cameron attended. Although the Labour party 
accused him of being a member of a secret 
society, the Bullingdon Club, is far from a 
secret society. Immortalized as the Bollinger 
Club by Evelyn Waugh, the Buller usually make its 
presence known by throwing exclusive yet rambunctious parties.



(1) the Hon. Edward Sebastian Grigg, the heir to 
Baron Altrincham of Tormarton and current chairman of Credit Suisse (UK)

(2) David Cameron

(3) Ralph Perry Robinson, a former child actor, designer, furniture-maker

(4) Ewen Fergusson, son of the British ambassador 
to France, Sir Ewen Fergusson and now at City law firm Herbert Smith

(5) Matthew Benson, the heir to the Earldom of Wemyss and March

(6) Sebastian James, the son of Lord Northbourne, a major landowner in Kent

(7) Jonathan Ford, the-then president of the 
club, a banker with Morgan Grenfell

(8) Boris Johnson, the-then president of the 
Oxford Union, now Lord Mayor of London

9) Harry Eastwood, the investment fund consultant


In the photo taken in 1992, there are eight famous faces:

(1) George Osborne, now the Shadow Chancellor;

(2) writer Harry Mount, the heir to the Baronetcy 
of Wasing and Mr. Cameron’s cousin;

(3) Chris Coleridge, the descendant of Samuel 
Taylor Coleridge, the son of Lloyds’ chairman 
David Coleridge, the brother of Conde Nast 
managing director Nicholas Coleridge

(4) German aristocrat and managing consultant Baron Lupus von Maltzahn,

(5) the late Mark Petre, the heir to the Barony of Petre;

(6) Australian millionaire Peter Holmes a Cour;

(7) Nat Rothschild, the heir to the Barons 
Rothschilds and co-founder of a racy student paper with Harry Mount

(8) Jason Gissing, the chairman of Ocado supermarkets.

Two figures on left of (6) and (7) were blacked 
out before the photo was released, causing wild 
allegations. Their identities are yet unknown. My 
top contenders (based on the influence in the 
City, the Athenaeum and their Oxford prominence) include:

(1) the Hon. Michael Gove, Shadow Secretary of 
State for Children, Schools and Families, former 
president of the Oxford Union and “one-man think-tank”

(2) the Hon. Adam Bruce, the son of the Earl of 
Elgin and incumbent Unicorn Pursuivant of Arms

(3) the Hon. Edward Vaizey, the son of Lord 
Vaizey and the Shadow Minister for Culture

(4) the founder of Think Tank Policy Exchange, 
and conservative activist Nicholas Boles

(5) Steven Hilton, the director of strategy for 
Cameron and godfather of Cameron’s children
