On a recent trip to Bristol University a THES reporter was amused to hear frequent reference to one "ET". It transpired that ET was none other than vice-chancellor Eric Thomas, a man with, indeed, considerable power and influence - if accounts of recent trips to Downing Street are to be believed.
His acronym is suitably matched by that of Bristol's communications and marketing director, one Barry Thomas, or BT. Is anyone else in Bristol keen to join the game. It would be a PT if there was no IT, or someone on the QT. Or would this be OTT?
