Evans, Malcolm 1947-:Handling complaints from students that our courses aren't up to much is one thing, Professor Veitch ... 29 November 1996.

Reference Number: H-368-021

Shows the Vice-Chancellor of Victoria University speaking on the phone from the ruins of his office (after a thunderbolt has struck it and the University). He is speaking to Professor Jim Veitch, Head of Religious Studies at the University, and is holding a newspaper, with the headline 'Jesus was not God's son - Victoria University Professor'. The cartoon refers both to a group of students suing the University for providing an inadequate post-graduate course in Environmental Studies, and to controversy over Professor Veitch's views on religion. The implication is that God has destroyed the university in retribution.
