In the Michaelmas 2016 edition you noted the continuing predominance of Oxonians and, in particular, Oxford PPE graduates in the government of the UK.

In the light of this fact, has any thought been given by the University authorities to the tenuous grasp that recent Cabinets have shown of either politics or economics, to how this may reflect on the worth of an Oxford education and to whether the University bears any responsibility?

I could also cite the former Education Secretary, also an Oxonian, who, to judge by his opinion of experts, appeared not to value education at all.
