[Original Link] Three things that get my goat:

  • The government’s constant striving to push as many kids as possible into higher education, (which is nothing whatsoever to do with keeping unemployment figures down),

  • The ridiculously low salaries of UK academics

All of which are components behind this report that Cambridge University is thinking of building three more colleges.
