        slightly between the lines, everything the same upto first ticket then looks like funding for further tickets might take a bit of a hit, but as I never understood how that bit worked anyway, I suspect it wont make a whole heap of difference in reality.

        So anyway good news, now expect Clyde et al to make it's decisions now and start the recruitment in earnest.

        No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

          it annoyingly doesnt say what the previous level of funding was, so there may still be a reduction although it may just be done by removing the higher ticket, and it looks like they will try to make any drop outs more accountable as well.
          at least all those people with the vague letters from clyde should now be getting a confirmation which will be nice
          you can take it with a pinch of salt, but i prefer it with a nip of whisky

              Very good news. Will be posting a news piece about it later this afternoon, just waiting for answers from my contacts re: the effect of increased tuition fees considering SMarT budget will be staying static.
