This is pretty sinister. I am thinking of writing to my VC to see whether he received it and to find out how he responded. Two words spring to mind, one beginning with F the other with O!

My VC has been very vocal about Brexit. No way would he respond to this bit of State interference.

OTOH, if they want to send us to a mindset retraining camp, maybe I could leave a pile of admin & marking behind, and pretend to become a Leaver. They won't know what I really think grin

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

I thought he may be an ex PPE student at first, but no he went to Wolverhampton Poly. He is a similar age to me, so at the time a large % of clearing spaces were available.

He is going to come a cropper, taking on all the VCs.

Interesting discussion on Radio 4 PM about this today. Bloke who is (I think) law professor at Durham was defending Chris H-H

Not sure what he can hope to gain. Any module on politics or the EU can't exactly NOT mention Brexit.... we gave him a list of all our politics modules suggesting all would mention Brexit and told him to look on the website!

It wasn't an FOI at least bane of my bloody life
