Dr. Heffer

I see from Monday’s Guardian that old companion of my youth Simon Heffer has been awarded a doctorate –

“Monkey also hears that Simon Heffer has been awarded a Cambridge PhD, in a rather unusual arrangement in which his 1998 biography of Enoch Powell was accepted in place of a doctoral thesis”

No truth, then, in the all too prevalent canard, promulgated by one or two right wing commentators, that some degrees awarded by English universities these days are scarcely worth the paper they’re printed on.

Country clearly not going to the dogs after all.
