Margarita Mathiopoulos, Duncan McCorquodale & Alice Hutchison: No statute of limitations on plagiarism

Margarita Mathiopoulos committed plagiarism. Now she has been stripped of her PhD. It’s a painful – and belated – loss. Nearly thirty years late, in fact – because Mathiopoulos submitted the offending work back in 1986, and received her doctorate the same year.

The past caught up with Hungary’s president Pál Schmitt – will Duncan McCorquodale finally face his?

Another plagiarism scandal has come to light. Once again, a high-ranking politician has been toppled by his intellectual theft. What’s going on here? Why don’t our ambitious elites seem to be learning anything from the experiences of the last few months and years? Why don’t they simply come clean and admit to their mistakes?
