Cambridge undergraduate rusticated for political poem

Marc Boxer was sent down from Oxford in the early 1960s for some blasphemous poems. One began: 'As God was cleaning his Bentley'. Arnott-Davies's offence seems much less grave though the poem sounds preachy and the ideas it expresses tired. I wonder why this happened. Are Cambridge dons supporting the Tories after sixty years? Surely not.
