Who let the plug out of Bath?

THE (Times Higher Education) - - THE POPPLETONIAN -

Our vice-chan­cel­lor has brusquely dis­missed the sug­ges­tion that the sharp fall in un­der­grad­u­ate ap­pli­ca­tions to the Univer­sity of Bath might have been oc­ca­sioned by prospec­tive stu­dent aware­ness of the abun­dant news sto­ries about the univer­sity’s “gov­er­nance fail­ure and ex­ces­sive greed”.

In what a lead­ing mem­ber of our Depart­ment of Phi­los­o­phy de­scribed as “uniquely con­tain­ing three ma­jor log­i­cal fal­la­cies”, a state­ment from our vicechan­cel­lor de­clared that cit­ing the “Break­well fac­tor” as an im­ped­i­ment to Bath re­cruit­ment was as ab­surd as sug­gest­ing that tourists in­tent upon vis­it­ing the Egyp­tian

Mu­seum in

Cairo might be de­terred by its pos­ses­sion of the con­tents of Tu­tankhamen’s tomb.
