  1. “More second class universities? What, like Cambridge?”

    In fairness to Cambridge, I’d consider it to be Upper second class.

  2. Wouldn’t a decent and well-run set of polytechs be a better solution?

    At least you’d get engineers instead of academics out of that..

    Well, yeah! We had a few before they got “upgraded” to universities and dumbed-down to attract students who were near the top of the third quartile, intellectually.
