LSE in print

People see me as pointless and empty but I'm a normal girl (who just happens to be worth GBP3bn)
The Daily Mirror, 09/01/2012, p.16, Rachael Bletchly
Tamara Ecclestone is said to have dropped out of the LSE. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/top-stories/2012/01/09/tamara-ecclestone-i-m-just-a-normal-girl-who-happens-to-be-worth-3billion-115875-23690034/|

'Nineteen years after Lawrence murder, stop and search is poisoning race relations'
The Observer, 08/01/2012, p.5, Mark Townsend
Dr Richard Stone, a member of the Stephen Lawrence enquiry panel, believes that police officers abusing the stop-and-search regime to further a racist agenda should face prosecution for wasting police time. A recent LSE/Guardian enquiry into the London riots found that anger at police tactics was a major driver behind the disorder and LSE academic Dr Michael Shiner says that as fewer than one in ten of the searches results in arrest, a large number of young - mainly black - people are being unnecessarily criminalised and alienated from society. http://www.guardian.co.uk/law/2012/jan/07/abuse-stop-search-crime-police|

The 'shameful' councils that condemn pupils to failure
The Sunday Times, 08/01/2012, p.14, Jack Grimston
A study being led by Tim Leunig, reader in economic history at the LSE for the think-tank Centre-Forum, has discovered a 'shameful' north-south divide in the education system, which results in the poorest children in many northern cities being only half as likely to score well in GCSEs as their London counterparts.

Didn't do our prep, did we, Mr Cameron?
The Independent On Sunday, 08/01/2012, p.42, John Rentoul
Comment. Though proficient on schools, David Cameron is accused of last-minute 'cramming' in a - failed - attempt to get to grips with health policy. Changing attitudes in the sector have been underpinned by research conducted by such institutions as the LSE, showing that hospitals facing local competition have better survival rates than those not doing so and Lansley's plan to hand over budgets to GPs appears to be an attempt to follow Labour's health reforms without understanding them. http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/john-rentoul/john-rentoul-didnt-do-our-prep-did-we-mr-cameron-6286602.html|

We need transparency in stop and search
The Observer, 08/01/2012, p.30, Unattributed
Research by the LSE and the Open Society Justice Initiative has found that there were 41.6 stops for every 1,000 black people under Section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, compared with 1.6 stops for every 1,000 white people, meaning that black people are 26 times more likely to be stopped and searched. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/jan/08/observer-editorial-stop-and-search-reform|

Tyrant's son sets Libya's new rulers a test of commitment to human rights

Saif al-Islam is noted to have received a controversial doctorate from the LSE. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/jan/07/saif-gaddafi-libya-human-rights|

Cut working week to 20 hours, urge economists
The Observer, 08/01/2012, p.7, Heather Stewart
The New Economics Foundation, which has organised an event with the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion at the LSE, suggests that cutting the working week to around 20 hours would solve a number of economic problems. http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2012/jan/08/cut-working-week-urges-thinktank|
