Congratulations to London Metropolitan University (one of this country's "older" bastions of learning, founded in 2002) for demonstrating some supreme fuckwittery.
Professor Malcolm Gillies, its vice chancellor, has told a conference that the university is considering banning the sale of alcohol from some parts of the campus.
Seemingly, according to the Prof, a "high percentage" of students consider drinking "immoral".
Has he actually asked them?
Students find drinking immoral?
Is it compulsory for students to drink?
No, I thought not!
On planet does the Prof live?
Ah, wait a minute, I see.
It seems that 20% of the students are Muslim, and the Prof is using the excuse of "cultural sensitivity" to promote his own personal belief (as stated in his speech) that he "was not a great fan of alcohol on campus".
It seems a pretty lousy tactic to use other people's religious beliefs as an excuse to promote your own prejudices, given that the students attend the university of their own free will and are not forced to drink.
He is quoted by the Telegraph:
"Because there's no majority ethnic group, I think it [selling alcohol] is playing to particular parts of our society much more [than to others]".For good measure the Prof is worried about sex on campus too.
Good luck with banning that then!
