See. Spartacus’ seventh sense (bullsh*t detection) is clearly well developed. Thus further to the earlier Van Onselen Watch post, here is a brief addendum.
And to which part of the University was Professor Van Onselen appointed? To the School of Business and Government. How’s that for a red flag. An academic combination of business and government. Would that be like having a School of Medicine and Car Repair?
In its announcement:
Griffith Business School Pro Vice Chancellor Professor David Grant said Professor van Onselen’s appointment was an obvious coup for the University.
A coup? Really. Professor Grant also said:
His (Van Onselen’s) part time appointment at Griffith will build further on the engagement and impact activities of GBS. Peter’s teaching into the MBA and GCPA programs, as well as undergraduate teaching, will complement his continuing program of academic research.
Engagement and impact activities. Right.
Maybe Professor Van Onselen’s next academic post will require teaching and researching tax reform. Should be easy for him. Just increase taxes. That’s reform according to him.
