Sensitive or censor 1

December 24, 2004

Your report on Durham University's learner sensitivity programme ("'Ethics' ruling raises fears for free speech", December 17) will be very good news for academics in the North. Surely, there will soon be a massive sale of books from Durham's well-stocked university library: old Bibles, Korans, general theology, biology, cosmology, philosophy, social studies, drama and film. What a bonanza!

Presumably Durham's staff discipline procedures will also face an effective overhaul to pick up on any staff expressing new and possibly controversial ideas?
