Career opportunities the ones that never knock, and every job they offer is to keep you out the dock

Spent yesterday driving to and from Southampton where my daughter has been offered a place studying politics and international relations. Without meaning to be offensive to anyone, the University seemed incredibly dull, and I was less than impressed to note that the Students Union was not affiliated to the National Union of Students. The political highlight of the day for me was motoring down the M40 listening to the late great Joe Strummer and The Clash belting out White Man in the Hammersmith Palais and Armagideon Time.

Now listening to that, it strikes me, would give the politics students of Southampton a pretty good starting point.
