The Decline of the University Education

Sad to say this photograph was taken in the John McIntyre Building at Glasgow University last week. I wonder if this was what Pope Nicholas V had in mind when he granted the University its charter? I guess not.

SHAG Week is run by the Student Representative Council. It quite rightly condemns the Carnage UK pub crawls for
encouraging binge-drinking and sexually-demeaning acts.

yet hosts SHAG week featuring:
Thursday: Condom Fairies @ Lollipop. Distributing condoms and advice at the GUU’sThursday club night from glamorous assistants dressed in condom tutus

Hmmmm. No cognitive dissonance there, guys?

Any wonder the UK is top of the world league for casual sex? "Made it Ma, Top of the World!" as James Cagney used to say.

Still I was relieved to see the SRC's website feature ALIVE the Glasgow Student Pro-Life society.

May be some hope yet.

With each year that passes, this sort of thing gets worse.

I have to walk past a large poster in my local pharmacy that has cartoon pictures of condoms. It is aimed at young people who intend having casual sex. It reads like an approval of their decision.

At the university where my husband does some part time lecturing, the students union appears to be hosting "free pole-dancing lessons".

Students these days are treated no better than lumps of meat to be prodded, poked, ogled and inspected.

And to believe that I suffered a complex for years for failing to get into one UCCA point...
