http://www.wonkhe.com/blogs/the-future-of-universities-is-more-political-than-ever/ The Bigger Picture 12 “BIS must find a £450m saving this year and prepare itself for a 20% cut in its budget as part of the coming Comprehensive Spending Review” “ Sajid Javid (new secretary of state) has made it clear that he is not a friend of universities” “ Javid’s real interest is not industrial policy or the health of the knowledge economy, but the political success of the Conservative Party that he would one day like to lead”
