I wrote an opinion piece in this space three months ago, headlined "Universities must take action on Muslim extremism". Naively, I did not anticipate the furore that followed. I was moved to write because of my anxieties about the increasingly confrontational activities of the student Islamic Society at City University London where I teach. They had staged events with the "brothers" and "sisters" segregated, invited radical Islamist speakers and planned to show a DVD of the Yemen-based preacher Anwar al-Awlaki, who has been banned from Britain for his alleged links to terrorists. The DVD was not shown after the then vice-chancellor, Malcolm Gillies, intervened.

Speech and language therapy: Help children, dementia sufferers and many others to communicate their needs better
Thursday 06 May 2010
By the end of today, John Bercow, the former Speaker of the House of Commons and MP for Buckingham, may find himself unemployed. Traditionally, the Speaker's seat is uncontested but Bercow, a controversial figure for many MPs, is facing a range of opponents in today's general election. Before he became Speaker in June 2009, few outside Westminster knew of Bercow; few, that is, other than the UK's 11,500 practising speech and language therapists (SLTs). Indeed, should Bercow find himself on the wrong side of the count tonight, he can take comfort from the fact that, in this small and female-dominated segment of the health service, the Bercow Review lives on.
