Yes, universities contribute greatly to the UK economy, at the top end the research is world leading and of great benefit not just to us, but the whole planet.
AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE AFTER BREXIT.
But, with all due respect to you, we are talking about Brookes here. If we are debating what is of greater benefit to the UK, the products of a farmer or the research of a post colonialist social science academic, it is not even close.
You can eat a steak or a potato. They keep you alive. There is nothing that can usefully be done with a book analysing concepts of gender and masculinity in 19th century Italian Opera (taken at random from the Brookes website) except maybe using it to wipe your @rse. And it is not a particularly economically efficient way even of doing that...
Ha ha ha! You can think that if it cheers you up, be my guest. But it shows a signal lack of understanding of British politics.
Sure, UKIP will never form its own government. But that is not the point! It doesn't need to form its own administration because this Government is pursuing ALL its key policies!
UKIP are the Fabians of our time. They never formed their own administration, either, but the 1945 Labour Government was the result of all their ideas.
You can think of Nigel Farage as a modern day Sydney Webb if you like.
