The landscape has changed. The earth has shifted. After four years in post David 'Two Brains' Willetts has stepped down as Minister of State for Universities and Science. He has held the post in both opposition and government since 2005. As the dust settles on the reshuffle, one thing is clear: David Cameron's been avidly watching the DVD of Fargo. Why else would he get on the blower and offer the hapless Jerry Lundegaard the most prestigious position in higher education?
Interesting news today from the USA, where a vial of the Smallpox virus was discovered in an unsecured Government refrigerator. Fundermentals has got hold of the note that was pinned to the front of the fridge. There's a message there for all of us.
