No Minister


One sometimes hears a lamenting from an Academic over the level of scholastic achievement by people embarking on a course of study at a University.

Cease with that, as this morning on Newstalk ZB a Professor of Immunology from Otago University as I think she was alluded to, used the newspeak for a group at risk as Vunrable when she might have been referring to Vulnerable.

If a bloody Professor can’t pronounce a simple word widely used in times past in referring to “at risk” then maybe the academic staff need to review their standards before piling on the product of our school education system.
