Shameless plug for our paper, but we have continuing coverage of the situation in print and online. In fact we were quoted in today's New York Times/Intl Herald Tribune! http://thebeaveronline.co.uk/
Anyway, the love of the Gaddafi's runs deep at LSE
. Nobody, not even the Student Union, said a word on the initial 'donations' the family gave to the School. Professor David Held, Saif's mentor and apparent life coach, has always rubbed me the wrong way. I don't think he is a particularly good lecturer nor are his ideas that impressive in my opinion.
Saif also hosted a live video lecture in December (I went to the pub that night out of protest.) that was lauded by all as an important talk by a legitimate leader. For a school with roots in social activism, this is quite the quagmiric situation.
I guess the school figured they named a large lecture hall after a holocaust-denier, so Gaddafi should be fine.
