The Riot Club is an elite Oxford University dining society for young male poshos previously educated at Eton, St Paul's or Westminster. Or, if they are desperate to reach a quorum, Harrow.

Membership virtually guarantees a position in a future Tory Cabinet or as a captain of industry, and also confers the right, its members would seem to think, to behave appallingly.

It doesn't really exist – it is the invention of the screenwriter Laura Wade, adapting and expanding her own 2010 play Posh, which was set over the course of a single increasingly debauched and Buñuelian meal.

But it's a mark of the success of her vicious social satire that we can believe the Riot Club is only a lightly fictionalised version of the Bullingdon Club to which David Cameron, George Osborne and Boris Johnson belonged.
