Meanwhile, the potential flashing of nether regions is causing a disturbance at Cambridge University. We have heard murmurings of discontent - and perhaps the wail of distant bagpipes - over reports that while Sikh students are permitted to wear turbans at graduation ceremonies, Scottish students cannot wear kilts. The subtleties of what distinguishes an article of religious faith from national dress appears lost on some dons, who plan to protest. One academic says he may turn up at this year's honorary degree ceremony in a kilt and an Argyll jacket. Hopefully, his claymore will be left at home.
