Well, here's a bit of welcome news for a change. It appears that the anti-semitic witch at UMIST who sacked two staff members for the unconscionable crime of being Israeli is herself facing dismissal:
The decision prompted a wave of international condemnation and Prof Baker told The Telegraph yesterday: "I will almost certainly get the sack from UMIST now." Her action has been denounced both by Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary, and Richard Dawkins, an evolutionary biologist at Oxford University.
The authorities at UMIST are believed to have privately urged Prof Baker to reinstate the Israelis or leave her university post. The university stated: "UMIST has always had a clear position on this issue: we strongly believe that discrimination is unacceptable, that the Israeli academics should not have been removed and that this decision was wrong." It said a "wide-ranging" inquiry would determine "any further necessary action".
Nice to see British academia showing a bit of spine for a change. Now all we need to do is get rid of that disgusting oaf Tom Paulin.
