Yes, it is.
Yes, good news.

The University's disciplinary procedures were 'flawed' and hopefully, this judgment will force the powers that be to have a rethink on policy....
so he's likely to be free to resume his studies and become a social worker. Not mine, I hope.
We just have to rely on future employers taking his medieval thoughts into consideration I suppose.
Presumably and hopefully, all the current publicity will scotch any job opportunities in the "caring" professions....
Yes. I don't see what business it is of the University that this person wants to spout nonsense on social media.
It's unrelated to his studies or his ability to complete them.

Now, if a prospective employer wants to look at what he's written and decide it makes him unsuitable for employment with them, that's a different matter. I'd have some sympathy with that.

it looks as tho the uni authorities did NOT follow their own rules which is always a posser when it comes to appeals
// It's unrelated to his studies or his ability to complete them. //

um no I think it is central to his possible future - social worker
oh, both sides took entrenched unreasonable positions

"Not mine, I hope"

Presumably you would feel the same about a Muslim social worker then, since they have the same line of thought?

It's freedom of speech, silencing people means it goes underground and festers. Better to be in the open and discussed.
Perhaps they were right but went about it the wrong way?

How can you realistically expect to get a professional qualification in social work and spout off in that manner. Whether he believes what he says or not, had he not said anything then the uni would be non the wiser.

What other sections of people doesn’t he agree with that could effect his ability to do a good job?
I don't know what the "fitness to do his job" bit has got to do with anything. A 40 year old doing a "post-graduate degree" in social science doesn't look like somebody who has any intention of working, more like a work-shy bum who has learned how to live off other people's money.
How is it any of the university's business what his chances of employment are?
Everyone is entitled to an opinion,however always best to view such statements made on the WWW as an addition to your CV.
ymb, the Muslims I know (no social workers) don't have the same line of thought - any more than the Christians I know do. You need to stop thinking about "they" as if all Muslims, or all Christians, are robots with the same programs.
Thought police objecting to the right to offend.
jno, //ymb, the Muslims I know (no social workers) don't have the same line of thought - any more than the Christians I know do.//

To claim that you need to know what they're really thinking....
