Lefty Lunacy: Profligate Prof has yacht got a clue


The vice-chancellor of one of the worst universities in the country is complaining because his £222,000 salary is ‘not enough’.

Professor George Holmes, a former Labour adviser and vice-chancellor of Bolton University (yes, they have actually had one since 2004), has said university chiefs should be paid more or they would leave the country.

Even though Bolton University has one of the lowest graduate employment rates in the country and is ranked 125th out of 129 in the Complete University Guide, it charges the full £9,000 fee and pays its vice-chancellor so handsomely that he can drive a Rolls Royce, sail a 30 ft yacht and buy a nice house with £960,000 loaned to him by the university.

This profligate Prof should lose a pound of his salary for each day his ‘university’ continues to be terrible.
