The Virginity bill for education

Tonight commuting home from a meeting I read on page 7 of the free evening newspaper that an 18- year old auctioned her virginity for £8,782 to raise the cash to study computing at university. Defending her actions Romanian Alina Percea was quoted as saying that the auction was “not like prostitution because it was a one-off and I did this for good reasons.”  On page 8  I read that the LSE and ICL Universities have been granted £24m by millionaire Jermey Grantham to research the economics of climate change and to study climate science. Funny old world! Come to think of it my undergraduate daughter is struggling to make ends meet at the moment…I think I’ll give her a call!
