An unfortunate turn of events at Middlesex. From the campaign site:
Some Middlesex University Philosophy students, along with Philosophy professors Peter Osborne and Peter Hallward, were suspended from the University this afternoon. Hallward and Osborne were issued with letters announcing their suspension from the University with immediate effect, pending investigation into their involvement in the recent campus occupations. The suspension notice blocks them from entering University premises or contacting in any way University students and employees without the permission of Dean Ed Esche (firstname.lastname@example.org) or a member of the University’s Executive.
Seems a bit “thugish” to me. Panic abounds, it would seem.
