Lambie thanks University of Tasmania V.C. for telling the truth about the Liberal’s proposed Higher Education changes

Independent Senator for Tasmania, Jacqui Lambie has thanked Vice Chancellor of UTAS, Professor Peter Rathjen - for warning the state about the considerable dangers associated with the Liberal’s proposed changes to Higher Education.

“I understand the incredible pressure which has been placed by Christopher Pyne and Tasmanian Liberals on Professor Rathjen. Professor Rathjen’s bombshell disclosure on Tasmanian ABC radio that, without additional funding, the future of the Burnie and Launceston campuses of UTAS could be in jeopardy – was a brave move, given the pattern of bullying behaviour exhibited by federal liberal members towards Academics who blew the whistle on the dangers associated with the proposed higher education changes.” said Senator Lambie.
