Crichton Campaign on Newsnight Scotland

The Campaign was given very good coverage on Newsnight Scotland Tuesday 13th Feb.

Note - first few minutes are from Newsnight UK...

Unfortunately following studio debate was about tuition fees - do Scottish Universities need more money from Scottish Executive (via Scottish Funding Council) now that tuition fees have been brought in in England.

This rather abstract debate was not very useful for our Campaign.

In fact it was pretty irrelevant - I have yet to hear anyone suggest Glasgow are pulling out of Dumfries because of tuition fees.

So why follow the strong narrative of Willie Johnston's film with this irrelevant - for immediate Crichton situation- studio discussion?

I guess that neither Sir Muir Russell nor anyone else from Glasgow University was prepared to go on Newsnight Scotland to argue the case for closure.

I wonder why? Could it be there is no such case?
