(from BT.com, 9/27.)

Musician and producer Brian Eno has spoken about how arts and humanities are seen as "a luxury" while science and maths are viewed as important and "part of what makes Britain great".

The former Roxy Music star has called for a "rethink" of culture due to "complete confusion" around the subject and picked up on what Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said about STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and maths.

Delivering the annual BBC Music John Peel Lecture, he said he heard Ms Morgan claim it was a good idea for students not to go into arts and humanities because they did not offer job prospects as good as the STEM subjects.
