Austerity, what austerity?

I am trying to keep my disapproval of this polite. Did Goldsmiths win the Grand Prix? There is no other excuse for the G-brand magnums these good ol boys are pumping.

    As one of the guilty parties, just to reassure you that there was no champagne in sight – just confetti. Hosted by LASALLE in celebration of a strong academic and creative partnership, which will be of tremendous benefit to many students from Singapore and beyond.
