If the Tory degree plan is dopey, look who’s selling it - July 2023 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - July 23rd, 2023

On Monday, as part of their ongoing fabricated culture war, a desperate Conservative government declared an incoherent assault on “rip-off” degrees.

It’s Thursday morning.

The anti-fraud Tories? You couldn’t make it up… - May 2023 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - May 7th, 2023

On Wednesday, Rishi Sunak opened his tiny mouth wide, as wide as it could possibly go, and announced “a new plan to stop scams at the source and help make it easier for people to protect themselves from fraudsters”.
