This is very disappointing. I am absolutely 100% in favour of discriminating on the basis of intellect in these matters. However, discrimination on the basis of wealth in this fashion is very bad form. I sincerely hope that any profit made by this enterprise is put to good use, perhaps to sponsor poor children from a young age to progress to a quality university.

It would be interesting to hear what Richard has to say about this. Even if there is some pragmatic explanation and benefit will ultimately be done to people who are not rich, I think being involved in this sort of thing sends out a very clear message. What do others think?
