If Ismet Ugursal were a regular reader of Times Higher Education, where my article was first published, he would know that the article was written partly tongue in cheek, but with a serious point.

It is also clear from his letter that being a professor at Dalhousie must be a very different experience from being one in the UK at the present time.
