As The Bo Xilai Scandal Continues, Everyone Is Starting To Look At His Playboy Son

•, Adam Taylor
 It's an easy leap to make, given that Neil Heywood, the U.K. man who is thought to have been murdered due to his links to the family, had been employed to help the younger Bo study in the U.K.

Bo Guagua studied at the prestigious Harrow School, the same school Heywood attended, before completing a degree at Oxford University, receiving a 2:1 mark (the second highest grade available) in PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics).

However, the Telegraph reports that his time at the college was not without controversy. He gained a reputation for "throwing champagne and shisha parties in college rooms," driving a Ferrari, and making flashy displays of wealth. Unfortunately he failed to impress his tutors (who “speak quite openly about their disdain for him”), and was eventually suspended for a year.

It appears that a visit from the Chinese ambassador may have convinced Balliol College to give him another chance. The school refused to give him a recommendation for the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, however — but he was accepted anyway.
