Burka Clad Cambridge Grads

Cambridge has clamped down on breaches of the rules after officials complained students were increasingly wearing casual clothes to ceremonies.

They warned the code 'is strictly enforced at ceremonies, and if you do not observe it, you may not be permitted to graduate on a particular occasion'.

Yesterday it clarified that clothing linked to religious observance, such as burkas, would still be allowed.

Scottish students who want to wear kilts instead of the regulation dark suits and white bow-ties have already challenged the rules.

It just struck me how we could have utilized this in our large, boring classes in college. Occasionally we could coerce some unsuspecting simpatico to sit in class for us if we had other more important pursuits. Burkas have magic appeal for attendance fraud. Now we could even skip graduation by sending our well paid burka clad imposter.
