Glasgow University faced a test of its resolve recently. And failed. Miserably. The story is told as the lead item ('Censored') in the latest edition of the Ansible newsletter.
Well, some British universities can still, just about, claim to be among the world leaders in various disciplines; and in this instance Glasgow seem to be leading the world in terms of the width of their yellow streak.
Caution is one thing, cowardice quite another. In respect of the Ansible archives, Glasgow have failed to display any degree of common sense, and, more important, have ignored any consideration of the principle of freedom of speech -- a matter in which universities have traditionally taken an interest.
Grow up, Glasgow. Please.
