Flower Power

One of the Mole's burrows came precariously close to spoiling the new flowerbeds linking UH to Main Campus.

Mole heard that this ‘art’ cost the best part of 2 million quid to install. Mole thinks that seems a lot for a couple of ditches full of dirty water and a smattering of plants; mole could have burrowed around that area and done his own ‘artwork’ for a lot less, leaving the University free to spend its 2 mill on more pressing matters like making the library half decent.

Perhaps the next student recruitment drive could be towards those of a porcine constitution? There might be a simpler explanation: perhaps, for all of his large house and fancy ways, that our own delightful Vin de Pays (a lot) is secretly a crusty and longs for the heady days of the Seventies, musicfestivals, free love-ins, and mud slides......

Still, at least the University doesn’t have a track record of being stitched up by fly-by-night characters. I mean, only a complete mug would give 60 grand to some charleton to spill paint down the walls, I mean, p-lease….
