I am delighted to see that the business world wants universities to be "the critical conscience of society and the repository of a moral authority". Furthermore, a report issued by business wants vice-chancellors to take a lead on moral issues and uphold the "fundamental values" of higher education.
Would any business representatives care to judge how much moral and ethical authority can be attached to a vice-chancellor imposing a "contract from hell" on staff without consultation, with the promise of dismissal for dissenters? Answers on the back of a postage stamp, please.
