It is no doubt wounding for Universities Minister, David Willetts, to read that his former Oxford tutor says “I have no confidence in him.”
There are plenty of good reasons for not having confidence: the 80% cut in teaching funds, axing investment in research, and the trebling of student tuition fees for starters.
However, for an Oxford academic to claim that academics like him are better politicians than someone who has been repeatedly elected as an MP since 1992 looks like a bad case of pot and kettle syndrome.
