Flash Friday 02/06: Finance, Financial Ministers, and ‘Shag, Marry, Kill’

This week, we have stories on MA fees, university finances, and an interview with an outspoken former Finance Minister…

Felix Online, Imperial College London


Felix Online have a great story on how their university invests its money, into some rather questionable places! It’s a great use both of official figures, and consumer information.

Roar News, King’s College London

Roar have a rather interesting story on an email withdrawing an invitation from a King’s think tank to Boris Johnson following his remarks on President Obama. The story had been nationally syndicated in several major news outlets… the problem being that the email was never sent by the think tank.

Epigram, University of Bristol

epigram 2

I love a good interview, and Epigram have an excellent one with former Greek finance minister and owner of a rather difficult name to spell, Yanis Varoufakis (got it right second try, with only a quick glance at the picture!). It’s a great, wide-ranging interview covering the EU, Jeremy Corbyn and Varoufakis’ (didn’t even need to look that time) experience¬†with the Syriza Party in Greece.

Wessex Scene, University of Southampton


Wessex Scene have a great, fun article playing ‘Shag, Marry, Kill’ and variations on a theme with festivalgoers! Some brilliant answers contained within!
