If Universities Descend To Pig Troughs We Are All In Godless Trouble !

Tory MP Andrew Murrison has resigned from his role at Bath University over the "eye -watering pay" of Bath University Vice Chancellor Dame Glynis Breakwell who gets a staggering £451,000 a year !  Mr Murrison called Dame Breakwell's pay "inappropriate" and accused Bath University bosses of running a "self-serving cartel".  Mr Murrison has ended his 16 year association with Bath University with a resignation letter expressing his  "disappointment’ at her pay package, given low levels of pay for ordinary academics and the ‘high burden of student debt’.

University Bosses Are Running "Self-Serving Cartels"

 Mr Murrison’s resignation statement read: ‘Universities really need to be asking whether the eye-watering sums some are dispensing to vice-chancellors are really necessary to attract what they represent as talent. ‘As a pack, they are looking increasingly like a self-serving cartel at a time of mounting student debt and wage restraint elsewhere in the public and quasi-public sectors.’

In addition to Mr Murrison's concern over wage-spiral cartels the universities minister Jo Johnson has previously expressed concern at the "highly variable" quality of undergraduate teaching sitting alongside very high levels of student debt.   

Our Opinion

Universities, colleges and schools are far far more than places of training we believe that they,  and not the church, are the places where God is truly respected and studied. The universal laws that science has discovered is, we believe, the real God and not the beliefs of the ancient world.  When places of education go bad it should be considered as one of the worst things that can happen in a healthy positive society.  Our real knowledge of God is held by our universities, when they become corrupt then the rest of us become godless.
