To mark the departure of controversial Pro Vice-Chancellor (PVC) Hilary Lappin-Scott, after The Eye exclusively revealed she was leaving scandal-hit Swansea University, we here reproduce links to some of the most popular pieces about her by our satirical columnist Edwin Phillips.

Professor Lappin-Scott had overseen the university’s management school when it has been engulfed in crisis and where a top-level police inquiry into alleged bribery is now underway during a questionable multi-million pound land deal, with the school at its heart.

She has been supported by an extraordinary anonymous computer campaign designed to undermine the investigation, with libellous messages sent to senior Welsh politicians and journalists.

She has enraged her staff by sending mundane tweets from glamorous parts of the world after she was sent on expenses-paid trips, and her superior has been sacked for “gross misconduct” along with senior executives who were her responsibility.
