    Stalin? Bukharin? Gee, I have really lost track of Neighbours.

    Enjoyed the Grundy acknowledgment. Reg Grundy – arguably a man who made a bountiful contribution to modern Western civilisation bearing in mind the number of countries where his productions were aired & also dubbed.

      Grundy is a cute reference from Grundle.

    Re: Michael Sainsbury’s piece on Chinese influence in Uni’s today:

    Should the NTEU mount an anti-Confucius Centre campaign in the same vein as the Ramsay Centre one?

    It’s not a gotcha question, or a smart-ass point. I’m genuinely curious about whether or not there’s an ‘academic freedom’ arguable equivalence in play.

    “How high Rupert?”

    What about this for a project Guy. Undertake an audit on every course at every institution for which students pay HECS. Then evaluate each course against “open” academic criteria. THEN we’ll see just how well or how badly the Ramsay Centre fares.
