We're paying for this crap?

Management professor Ian Yeoman, a futurist with an interest in tourism, and sexologist Michelle Mars have looked to how red light districts might operate in the year 2050

The future of sex tourism lies in robot prostitutes

- Victoria University researchers

One wonders how such studies might help close the gap with Oz.

IMHO, Mr Key, here's where an extremely sharp axe should be wielded.

When I read this story I hurriedly checked to make sure I didn't have a copy of the paper for 1 April.
I now understand why New Zealand universities continue to drop in the world rankings.
I am almost embarrased to admit that I went to Vic, although rather a long time ago. At least this rubbish wasn't considered to be research by academic staff then. It would, possibly, have been published as "humour" in Salient (the student newspaper) in the 60's or 70's.
