Where is that Post-It gone?

New Tory Schools Minister Nick Gibb MP has made the cardinal sin of saying out loud what most of his colleagues secretly think.

This is merely a less polite way of expressing the same views as those of his colleague Michael Gove, who  has made earlier references to 'good universities'.

In both cases these 'good' and 'rubbish' institutions are defined not through undertaking something as dull as wading through impartial reports from HEFCE and the Quality Assurance Agency, and coming to an informed conclusion... but rather an arbitrary list of universities jotted down on the back of a Post-It over whisky in the Carlton Club.
