Shock, horror! Nice, predominantly middle-class academics to vote Lib Dem ("Clear preference for Clegg in poll", 8 April)?
Perhaps more interesting than this entirely predictable outcome is the possibility that 11 per cent of academics will not bother to vote at all.
Ironic, then, that the majority of these nihilists will complain about the state of higher education while sipping Bourgeois Nouveau six months later.
