    Interesting question.
    Prompted me to research the archives and add some text to the
External Events page
    Looks to me as though something happened around October 2002
which pushed defra to push the University into shot gun
marriage. Perhaps pressure from House of Commons Select
Committee (they had been pretty scathing).
    Round about that time (Spring 2003) TMA Wilson went.
Was he pushed, did he jump, or did he just reach retirement age?
