I just felt I needed to jump to the defense of cardigans. There are many
cardigan wearers who are NOT academics and whose cardigan wearing is at
least as meaningful as the cardigan wearing of those subsidised to do so.
Furthermore the cardigan is warm and comfortable and has a great
pedigree and I feel that Mr Worby is being downright UNPATRIOTIC in his
denigration of this most British of garments
