Alison Wolf praises what she calls the "peasants' revolt" at the London School of Economics that started the avalanche that buried the previous Quality Assurance Agency regime ( THES , May 30). But she finds it "truly depressing" that all five academics who proposed the motion for the LSE to withdraw from cooperation with the QAA had non-British backgrounds.
She may be less depressed to know that her data are at fault. I have not checked birth certificates, but at least two of the five are evidently from "here" - three if you allow Ireland to count. About par for the LSE course.
