One guillotine, s'il vous plait

January 14, 2005

Meanwhile, Warwick University's famous feminist in residence Germaine Greer has stormed out of Celebrity Big Brother , provoking great excitement among journalists around the world. It seems likely though that her departure was missed by many British academics.

When The Times Higher asked Simon Blackburn, professor of philosophy at Cambridge University, to review Professor Greer's performance, he explained simply: "I would rather chop my own head off than watch an episode of Big Brother , and a brief look at the website nearly brought breakfast up. I simply couldn't face even the minimal amount of homework necessary to comment on La Greer and her antics."
