I was a bit puzzled by the stupidity displayed by Caroline Flint in her Newsnight video:

But according to her Wikipedia page she has a "BA (Hons) in American Literature and History combined with Film Studies from the University of East Anglia."

I'm not puzzled any more.

Isn't reading, watching tv and going to the cinema what people do anyway? And they give degrees for that in Norwich?

Did she really do that badly? The policy - or at least the manner in which it is being handled - is stupid. But would doing an Edwina Currie and telling people what to do in this situation have been smart? Nothing wrong with playing a dead bat to everything when you're on a sticky wicket (I expect Alex Massie coming on telling me how wrong that metaphor is).

No one is smarter than their criteria.
