    The students will vote by not turning up.

    On my computer studies course at uni they only ever tried scheduling one class before 10am, touch typing. Went the once to see if the teacher was fit, never went back, never learnt to touch type. Oh well I survived.

    In this day and age surely the students have it sussed to get someone to video the early starts and watch them later. If not, then there's a plan B for someone, supplying students with robot assistants to go along and record the lectures. The next stage of roomba evolution.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Stone me, the rittle barstewards complain about 09:00 and some can just about turn up for 10:00 when the fancy so takes them.

    08:00?

    Aren't loads of them boring now? So an 8am start shouldn't be a problem.

    I had a few lectures at 9am. I must confess I didn't make it to all of them.
    Duct tape holds the universe together. In quantum chromodynamics it's known as the strong force. You get it in different colours, but metallic grey is best.

    "University students union president Megan Croll said: "It seems the university is more concerned about tuition fees than the student experience at Durham."

    Welcome to the real world love....
