@RobbieStuart40 @McSpooning Which is what the uni is doing mate. They need to get round the table!
@RobbieStuart40 @McSpooning I agree. They should be rearranged and money should be refunded. None of this makes strikes invalid.
@RobbieStuart40 @McSpooning You won’t get a good education if it’s driven by market forces. Staff need to be paid properly and be incentivised. Students should be prioritised, but these strikes are entirely the Unis’ fault
@RobbieStuart40 @McSpooning That’s the unis’ fault, not lecturers (see my pinned story). I think students should be compensated for time lost, but I blame UUK. Stirling principal is on 300k+ while lecturers get their pensions cut and there isn’t enough accommodation. It’s a disgrace.
@RobbieStuart40 @McSpooning Missing the point: they have the right to peacefully protest and that doesn’t negate duty of care.

What was your first job as a journalist?

It was a work placement at my local newspaper. I sent them a letter asking if I could come in once a week to count as a school "subject".

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Not that I can recall.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Zoe Barnes. Not that I approve of her methods of course...
