#Decolonization is working well when the ilk of @sagarikaghose start writing stuff like "India should move past the decolonisation debate".

Who wants to go first to destroy her narrative?

#Decolonisation is just beginning in India. The Raj is still not dead in colonized minds in India. There is no debating that decolonisation is the need of the hour. English language is not a measure of intelligence.
PG Wodehouse, Shakespeare are not taught in Britain. Why are they taught in India? Britain’s imperial desires #Racist #Literature wanted to influence Indian social life style, culture and literature of Indian subcontinent. #Decolonize

Turns out @portsmouthsu requested a week's extension so @PortsEngLitSoc students cd respond to redundancy proposals ... but @portsmouthuni didn't tell UPSU or students about the (2 day?!) extension, and didn't tell @PortsmouthUcu or @UOP_EngLit staff that this had been requested.
Instead the Interim Dean told @UOP_EngLit staff that the extension (which began *after* the consultation period closed) was "a result of matters raised at the consultation meeting [with @portsmouthucu @ucu] on the 18th June"... only they didn't mention the restart to UCU.
Bear with us, it's not over...

Then, 20 minutes before the end of the 2-day extension, the Interim Dean of @UoPHumSS @portsmouthuni sent a *new* consultation document to @ucu (but not @UOP_EngLit staff) full of additional misrepresentations & inaccuracies.
