Universities are often the most vocal of the PC elite when complaining that they are not funded well enough, and the ‘University’ of South Wales is no different.
Castigated by sound Tory MP David Davies for “always bleating about having no money”, the university has now advertised a £63,000-a-year role for a ‘Professor of Storytelling’. Yes. Really.
The university, which counts Plaid Cymru’s wilting daffodil Leanne Wood as among its ‘esteemed’ alumni, defends storytelling as “a subject of academic research and practice for many years and is becoming an increasingly important way of understanding our lives, work and future.”
TCW cannot wait to hear the story of the day this ‘university’ stops wasting public cash.
