Screaming Lord Foulkes Sounded Out

What a tragic defeat the University of Edinburgh Rectorship election proved for that doughty tribune of the labouring plebs, Lord George Foulkes.

On any reckoning, alienating 68.8% of your electorate was never a grand stratagem for victory. To give the fellow his due, however, he clearly has a knack for educational topics, producing untold harmonious consensus from the combined ranks of grubby studentdom and the dusty dons of Edina's academia. Labour pick for education spokesman, do you think?

Never mind, George. Its only one less expenses coupon to cash.
