The University of St Andrews held an election for Chancellor of the University using rules Menzies Campbell must wish applied in the Lib Dems. The university opened and closed nominations during the Christmas holidays so none of the students could nominate anyone to run against the Principal’s choice – Ming. They then failed to tell any of the voters, which involves all the university’s graduates, about the vote. Perhaps Ming could get Dr Brian Lang, the university principal, to run Lib Dem elections in future?
The university principal works in a building called College Gate, so scandals in the administration tend to get called the Collegegate Scandal. More details here.
