A tough battle is in prospect to determine the successor to TV personality Lorraine Kelly as rector of Dundee University. There are two candidates, neither of whom backs down in the face of opposition. One is Craig Murray, formerly our man in Tashkent, who blew the whistle on human rights abuses in Uzbekistan. The other is Andy Nicol, former national rugby union captain who led Scotland to victory against the English in 2000 and claimed the Calcutta Cup. The election will be held on February 16.
