This bloke was hit by a car and ended up with brain damage. He had already graduated from university. The university found out about his brain damage and took his degree off him. Does anyone kind of think the is pretty weird and kind of despicable.

I guess it depends on the degree? It's not good for the university or for the general public if the man is considered professionally qualified to do something that he can no longer do. I agree that it seems kinda heartless, though.

Are you nominating yourself as the primary source for this information? Because that I could quite readily accept at face-value.

the degree is just a snapshot of your ability on the day you graduate. it is not a guarantee of future performance. like your MOT is just a snapshot of your car on a particular day.... the vehicle could have all manner of problems the following week.

Proof? I've known people with similar medical issues and no university has got involved. #fakenews

It wasn't in the paper it happened to someone I know through someone else also the brain damage was not that severe. I am kind of astounded that the university has such power.

There's probably a bit more to the story. And I imagine the thing you're leaving out perfectly explains the situation.
