The Kessler piece seems to hang itself very tenuously on the Association of University Teachers' decisions. Having been at both the original conference (where I voted in favour of the boycott of Bar Ilan, and abstained on the motions regarding the other universities) and the recalled conference (room hire, fourteen quid a head for lunch, security men...), I shall only say that most of the press reports were wildly inaccurate. I shan't expatiate at present on why those inaccuracies arose.
