Worthy of his Hire
Yesterday saw Huttonian's last trip this academic year to Embra for pontfications at the Uni. Hard days work for once with two tutorials and an extended seminar. A recent development as been the paying of my rail expenses-I used to calaculate that after adding my lecture fee onto my total earnings, deducting the taxman's cut and the travel costs I made 25 p on each visit. Now it is a bit heavier in the pocket. Being an Honorary Fellow I have no official place in the pay structure and I used to wonder out of what particular cost centre my fee came. 'Expert Consultancies'? 'Academic Outsourcing'?, 'Visiting Lecturers'? ' Guest Pontifications'? It couldn't be 'payment for Honorary Fellows' as that would border on the oxymoronic.
I checked on my last years pay advice. In bold
