Oxford wipe English off the curriculum

25 October, 2007

I saw in a shop recently a kids telescope. It was part of a range of kids science kits that was branded by the University of Oxford. Now I have to say I did a double take when I saw it but apparently it should be used to explore the world of astrology. Though how anyone would need a telescope to see Russell Grant is beyond me.

You would have thought that such a supposedly elite academic institution as Oxford University should be able to tell the difference between a load of hocus pocus and the scientific examination of space but apparently not.

    This makes no grammatical sense. How are you doing, by the way?

    Hi John, yes it should be off instead of of. I’m well, will be in london next wednesday for the protest against the saudi state visit. Thought about inviting myself onto Doughty street after but it doesn’t fit with the train times.
