I have spent all my life working in universities. As a young man of 30, I had the same salary as a lawyer friend aged 27. Six years ago, the salary of my lawyer daughter of 27 was several thousand pounds more than my professorial terminal salary. Perhaps this denigration of universities by successive governments has accounted for the perceived drop in standards?
