iPhone : I don’t know the right answers to the challenges many unis face, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t angry and hurt. Anywhere with a bit of financial flexibility should see this as prime poaching time in ‘elite’ UKHE. Lots of exceptional people easily tempted ATM.

iPhone : Ordinarily there are lots of things that make it a really great job: inspiring interactions w students, affirming talks w colleagues, travel (for those who can travel easily), flexibility, & sabbaticals to recover & refocus on writing. Without those the job is relentless for many

Twitter Web App : One almost hopes Theresa May is keeping herself mildly drunk at all times to deal with the sheer stinking double standard of it all.

Twitter Web App : Johnson is weak (hence DC still in post), but his Cabinet is just as weak. How they have not risen up in revolt at this carnival is beyond me. How little respect for themselves, their constituents and the constitutional principle of accountability they all have.…

Twitter Web App : "We endure [lockdown] individually because we understand ourselves to be also enduring [it] collectively. Cummings’ actions...strip [that] Johnson’s defence of [him] the only value is the individual “instinct” of the members of the ruling caste"…
