I've been asked to get together a group of finalists to go on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire on Friday morning to talk about graduating (or not).
You get free breakfast and the chance to moan about the action short of a strike to a large audience of radio listeners. The flipside is you'll need to be in Coventry by 8.45am – which for Leam–dwellers like myself means being at Leam station shortly after 8am.
Drop me an email if you're interested!

In a move certain to repair relations between staff and the powers that be, and end the current strike, I read that the University is offering staff two tickets to the opera for the price of one.
The move represents a continuation of VC Dave's decision to confront the industrial action in the manner that one would discipline a difficult child – witholding privileges and dangling treats (or in this case Puccini) in return for good behaviour.
My sources tell me that the AUT are discussing calling off the action short of a strike as we speak.
