Dominic Cummings brands Boris Johnson a ‘clueless gaffe machine’ in latest attack. Dominic Cummings has unleashed another bitter attack on Boris Johnson, describing his former boss as a “gaffe machine” who is “clueless” about policy and government. The prime minister’s former chief adviser made the comments as he defended the decision for Johnson to decline an interview by the then BBC broadcaster Andrew Neil during the 2019 general election. Johnson was criticised for refusing to be grilled by Neil, now the chairman of GB News, in contrast to Jeremy Corbyn, then the leader of the Labour Party. The prime minister initially told Andrew Marr he was “happy to be interviewed” by any interviewer “called Andrew” from the BBC, but ultimately he did not appear. In a Twitter message today Cummings wrote: “Pundits: not doing. Continue reading Get unlimited digital access on any device.

PO, yeah I suppose its all about opportunity isn't it? If your prepared to travel the globe it might be quite a buccaneering profession still for the right kind of person. If your UK based chartred is just embellishment I suspect.

Utricky, it used to be that if you had 6 years experience and an eng degree, you just applied for c.eng and got it. My son in law (who unfortunately is an engineer) is currently applying for chartered status, and he has just had an extensive nterview, and can now write up his career to date to submit. After that, he has to wait 2 months to see if he's got it, so things have changed. Worth fa in britain of course, but if you get eur ing (just an application after c.eng) you can then get high pay and status almost anywhere abroad. The engineering society are more or less a complete waste of space, ensuring engineers are low paid and very low status in the uk.

Your not brilliant engineer untill you've done 20yrs minimum in employment and become chartered. You certainly don't become a brilliant engineer out of college....impossible.

But he made Brexit happen.And made the Vaccine HAPPEN.But beyond that, like some Greek story, he has destroyed all and himself. I blame his woman, but there again he was open for that. Infected his head with Woke. Cannot continue like this. Thankyou for the good things and Damned for the misery you and your woman caused. Let's get the Communists out of the Conservative Party and then out of all other things they have infected. OUT. OUT. OUT.

I think careful's right, this university may have a particularly strong reputation in such and such a subject, that university may be renowned for so and so. But when you see the undergraduate rooms you'll find a good selection of books on the subject he's reading and that's about it. By contrast, the rooms of an Oxbridge undergraduate reading history, say, will likely also have books about philosophy and architecture and comparative politics and English literature. The result is a more broadly cultured person. And yes, University Challenge does showcase this. You may have a brilliant engineer on, but let a question on the Greek myths come up and you'll see an utterly blank face.

Lol Careful, i expect you have a kid at Warwick.? It's often a long history which gives unis gravitas - i've never heard of warick even trying to be big in engineering. It hardly has any history at all. Remember, like minny and that useless welsh poly, whichever uni/poly someone goes to, its the best uni for the subject they are studying. Like you say, there is a broad brush hierarchy whether we like it or not, and that is Oxbridge, 3 or 4 such as bristol and durham (tee shirts 'i am not an oxbridge reject'), the rest of the russel group, other established unis, unis created from polys and colleges.

Tbf Minerve may have a point. Oxbridge has been clobbered by diversity targets from the zealots over several years. I wouldn't be at all surprised if universities who were clinging to their coat tails haven't overtaken them by now.

Oxbridge attracts the brightest pupils, that is certain. In previous times many top private schools would measure their success by the number of Oxbidge places they achieved. A measure of excellence. The brightest pupils were always pressured unreasonably to apply for Oxbridge. And as always in the UK, there is an element of the class system present. Prime Ministers,Cabinet ministers, Royalty, and the elite of the establishment mostly went to Oxbridge. But if you want to practice (say) engineering then the advanced departments at Warwick University, with strong links, traditions and to the motor industry is the place to be. That is why the Chinese send many thousands to Coventry and Warwick at great expense. Rolls Royce have a scheme with links to many universities that are centres of excellence in some particular aerospace discipline. But if you want to study History, English, PPE, Classics or learn how to translate Greek poetry, then go on to run the country then Oxbridge is for you. Having said that I was surprised to see how many of the Oxford Cambridge boat race crews were studying engineering.

Yes the Welsh lay claim to many of the world's great thinkers, Aristotle was from Merthyr. Some say Merv's a bit of a Kant but I'm not convinced. It must have something to do with all that Brains SA they drink. Mervs student union bar. hTtps://youtu.be/RByWBTS3kN4

I get it. The polytechnic of the welsh valleys takes on virtually an old dross which applies, and magically produces thousands of nobel prize winners. Oxbridge is highly selective as to academic ability and works them very hard for 3 years and they are all duffers. Sounds like the view of someone who went to the polytechnic of the welsh valleys.
