Medievalism and Mr Clarke 5

May 16, 2003

Charles Clarke appears to believe that the subject of a degree needs to be directly relevant to any subsequent employment. I wonder if he would care to comment on why the prime minister has appointed him, a graduate in mathematics and economics, to the education department and not the Treasury; and Gordon Brown, a history graduate, to the Treasury and not the culture department? Could it possibly be that Tony Blair believes that the education both have received has given them a basis in rational thinking that they can apply in a number of different fields?
