Oh Yuk, Yuk, Yuk

It's not just LSE either; nor is it just Libya.

This one has happened to spill its guts all over the media.  Academe is filled with people like this, after all, that is where they are bred.


Worse and worse

I hear that, in a rare display of principle, the principal has resigned.

Would that our "government" retained a smidgeon of such old-fashioned personal responsibility!

many years ago, Undergraduate Drew got into hot water with the proctors for drawing to the world's attention the fact that a Certain College was fast becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Shah of Iran ...

no-one ever denied it, though

Which are worse, the academics who sold our universities for the usual, and are all over the appointments committees, or the fund raising creeps that are all over academic boards and councils?

The case for razing quite a lot of Camden north of the Euston Road and driving out the cheapo academics from their cheapo haunts is very strong. Would clean up the borough no end too.
