The management of Bath University, who employed the greedy Dame Glynis Breakwell as a £470,000 a year Vice-Chancellor until she stood down last November have announced her replacement, at a lower salary of £266,000.

He is Professor Ian Wright, currently at Cambridge University and, unlike Breakwell, who also got a free house with household expenses paid and a free car, he is expected to provide his own accommodation and vehicle. It is also thought that, unlike Breakwell, he will not be able to sit on the University’s remuneration committee, which decides salaries and other benefits.

Other very well paid University Vice-Chancellors in 2015-2016 were Keith Burnett, Sheffield (£423,000), Bob Cryan, Huddersfield (£365,000), Louise Richardson, Oxford (£350,000), Paul O’Prey, Roehampton, (£342,000), Dominic Shellard, De Montford (£326,000), John Vinney, Bournemouth, (305,000), Anne Carlisle, Falmouth, (£298,000), and Joy Carter, Winchester, (£282,000), and these figures are likely to have increased since then.
