Unfortunately, Equity Uncle has absconded from the locked cage in which De Minimis normally keeps him. Since his whereabouts are currently unknown (although we think he might be doing a clerkship or something), we were unable to force him to write a column or crossword puzzle this week.

George Brandis seeks to introduce invasive spying legislation, despite not understanding what it will actually do
Last week, the Dean released one page of the forty-eight page Business Improvement Plan to students. Since we still don’t know what content lies on the other forty-seven pages, your author has resorted to wild conjecture to fill in our gaps of knowledge.
