Written by Luke Bailey I want to go for a drive. But I can’t, I don’t own a car. I want to sit behind the wheel and blast my way down a motorway. In any direction so long as it’s away. But I can’t, there’s a pandemic raging. I want to lose myself to the music blaring out of tinny car speakers, as I leave everything behind me. But I can’t. I could just get up, right now as I write this, and go. I could disappear off the face of the earth for a week. Or more. But I can’t. My housemate would worry. I can’t just disappear. I wish I could drive as far as possible, and then still keep going. Driving until I am hidden in the midst of the Scottish Highlands. I would be untraceable, uncontactable. I would be free. Just a few days without the constant pressure pushing me back down. But I can’t. I could immerse myself in books and music and the beauty of the wilderness. I could walk among the trees and the …

Written by Max Ashforth Petitions arise over defunding to the pure mathematics department at the University of Leicester. Freddie Mansfield, a third-year student, and Hannah Amliwala, a second-year student, recently started a student-led petition, that has gained 87 signatures, as of 4 March. This petition was set up in response to one set up by staff, which has been signed by over 1,000 people. The recent announcement has not been supported by all students, as Freddie stated: “I can’t see any positives about how the changes would benefit maths students.” The changes set out by University of Leicester Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nishan Canagarajah, include the redundancies of 12 pure mathematics lecturers. These redundancies would be followed by the appointment of three teaching roles. Currently, staff split their time between teaching and researching the subject, however the plan is for this to be reduced to just teaching roles. It is feared that reducing the number of staff in the department would deter prospective students from applying to the university. The long-term impact and knock-on effects, which would …
