TOBY YOUNG was the wrong person for appointment to the Office for Students board and the government’s methods of slipping him in were as bent as a clockwork orange.

Shorn of diplomatic adornment, that is the verdict from Commissioner for Public Appointments Peter Riddell, whose report details a catalogue of corruption by the Tories to get their preferred candidate onto the board of the universities regulator.

If a trade union, local authority or any other public body receiving state cash had adopted such partial procedures to subvert an appointment procedure, ministers would have been in uproar, demanding that heads should roll.

The University and College Union (UCU) is spot on to identify what the commissioner’s report unearthed as “nepotism.”

Well we know the tories are corrupt but individual stinks still need to be identified.

In my direct experience, student bodies themselves aren't exactly so squeaky clean and devoid of political nepotism either. I got to chair one local student union simply because nobody else wanted the responsibility and without which position it would have folded. For all their bluster, the end result is very similar to politics in general; rather lukewarm. Too much talking and not enough practical action otherwise the gov would never have found it so easy to bring in loans, fees and crank up the interest.
