Laurie Taylor and The Poppletonian this week

I'm a big fan of Laurie Taylor, and this weeks column in the Times Higher is just perfect.

Two gems - Dr Piercemuller's view of students, and a lovely line about research - "In difficult economic times, it is more important than ever that we preserve the tried-and-trusted process in which the Government funds research that, when completed, can only be assessed by unpaid peer reviewers and then published years later in private profit-making journals."

Just too close to the truth too often!
