As I mentioned in a previous post, I had to be in Hull last Wednesday for the summer graduation ceremony. After the ceremony, the Politics Department holds a reception in a marquee on the lawn by the Wilberforce Building, which houses the Politics Department. It is the tradition to have a group photograph of those graduating on the four-year British Politics and Legislative Studies (BPLS) degree. They spend the third year of the degree on placement at Westminster – and have the delight of me teaching them in their second, third and final years.
Following a subtle hint by one or two of this year’s graduates (e.g. ‘Will you be putting a picture on your blog?’) here is a picture of me with Hull’s finest.
