" I did look. You have convinced me you..never provided evidence to support your opinions."

I've realized degrees come in 2 kinds.

"Opinon" degrees, where you pick up marks for writing apparently logical and plausible essays.

"Fact" degrees where you have to study something.

Now opinion degrees don't require (in any real sense) a need for an absolute, verifiable truth, but fact degrees do. Something will either work, or it won't. Something either is, or is not true.

AFAIK the vast, overwhelming majority of politicians have opinion degrees like History (Rees Mogg), Gove (English) and Johnson (Classics).

IOW degrees in producing bu***hit.
