Many congratulations to Laura Hartmann on becoming the first student in the Centre for Journalism to sit and pass an NCTJ shorthand exam. This also makes Laura the first student to pass an NCTJ exam of any variety. Very well done Laura. Â I promise to deliverÂ a bottle of wine in recognition of yourÂ excellent pioneeringÂ achievement. I think I shouldÂ also invite the British government to take a look at the wayÂ English language and EnglishÂ grammar are taught in Germany.Â We might learn something.
The power of snow has exerted itself again. The campus is officially closed again, today, Tuesday February 3. Very sorry. I shall be in my office if anyone wishes to telephone me. In Scotland we play golf in conditions like this.Â
Below is the text of an e-mail I received today from Rob Kirk at Sky News. Well done everyone and thank you.Â
