Faux Pax

Driving up to Auckland, I was expounding on my theory that we should only have four universities (Otago, Canterbury, Victoria and Auckland) and the rest should be polytechnics etc. Conversation goes like this:

: Waikato is not a proper university – a law degree from there makes you almost unemployable
Neill: How about Massey
DPF: Also doesn’t make the grade. Most students are extra-mural so it is really just a glorified correspondence school
Neill: And Bernadette, what are you studying at the moment
Bernadette: I’m doing a degree extra-murally through Massey

An extended silence followed.
