Estelle Hart speaks on Claire Lock

Estelle Hart this evening (5:50pm) spoke about access and its relation to Claire Locke’s departure from the Presidential race.
She noted that comments on social networks that Locke’s motivations for withdrawing were ‘selfish’ were ‘appalling’. She called upon conference to understand Locke’s decision was ‘not an easy choice’, to remember that Locke’s institution (London Met) being under attack from cuts, and her status as a single mother mean that chances to support herself are hard to come by.
Instead of mocking, Hart asked conference to think about what widening access really means, and what we can do to make that phase actually mean something. Categories: Conference 2012, News, Comment
