Martin (Stewart) letter

29 April 2010

This decision would be a shameful act of vandalism and must be resisted. Were it to stand, it would irreparably damage the University’s reputation, with immediate and far-reaching consequences for its capacity to succeed by any measure. The ethos and principles according to which it has been made are fundamentally alien to what motivates the people who study and teach here. The justification offered is pathetically ignorant of this. Who wants to work and study in a University governed by such decisions? The deep shock expressed inside and outside the University is testimony to the magnitude of the mistake being proposed. I join with the calls already made for all to do whatever they can to save Middlesex from itself.
