No confidence in David Willetts is fair enough, but beware of the pots and kettles syndrome

It is no doubt wounding for Universities Minister, David Willetts, to read┬áthat 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.

One thought on “No confidence in David Willetts is fair enough, but beware of the pots and kettles syndrome”

  1. Perhaps the don in question is not a self serving, corrupt fool with stripped us of civil liberties 1997-onwards?
