The University of Leeds has proposed cutting up to 700 jobs, according to the University and College Union. This is part of the university's attempt to cut its annual budget by £35 million. The Vice Chancellor, Michael Arthur, has engineered these cuts, and the student union refuses to oppose them. Leeds University is just one of dozens of higher education institutes that will be crippled by a reduction in funding. These attacks on jobs and education are the most severe since the Thatcher years and must be resisted.
