Yes, I’m German. Does it matter?

The Tab has recently realised that I’m German. I don’t see how that should matter, just as it shouldn’t matter which gender, skin colour or sexual orientation you have.

If one wanted to make an exception of this like TCS has done recently  with the article “Too many men, too few candidates”, one might be inclined to point out that at least in the past three years, possibly more, there have been no international sabbs, let alone non-native speakers representing students at a University with 40% internationals.

Thanks, Tab for reminding me I’m German.

Oh, and by the way, maybe the Tab should listen to its own advice.

Is the timing a coincidence? Or does someone have moral scruples?

Appendix: 40% of full-time students have non-UK citizenship (source here)
