Louise Richardson kicks Salmond’s and R&A Golf Club’s arses!

It’s been a pretty good week for our principal, Louise Richardson.

First there were the revelations she refused to be Alex Salmond’s personal mouthpiece. Despite pressure from the First Minister’s office, she declined to sign a pro-SNP message.

In a further boost to Richardson, news has just come in that the Royal & Ancient Golf Club has voted overwhelmingly to accept women members for the first time in its 260 year history.

The move comes after Louise Richardson criticised the R&A’s policies earlier this year. Richardson claimed being excluded from important networking events made it hard for her to do her job.

The 2,500 strong membership of the G&A, voted 85% in favour of allowing women into the club. The turnout was a high 75%.

Rory McIlroy, the world’s number one golfer, said:

It is a pity some golf clubs have been quite slow on the uptake. It doesn’t matter if you are a man or woman, black or white, everyone should have equal opportunities to do anything you want, whether to join a golf club, or get a job.

Well said Rory and well done Professor Richardson!
