All The Others Must Be Drongos

The Labour Trash Tabloid uses a Canterbury Universsity academic to delver its daily dose of anti-National rhetoric.

The guy was doing quite well until I got to this bit:-

"Dr Jarrod Gilbert is a sociologist at the University of Canterbury who specialises in research with practical applications."

Does he mean to imply that all other sociologists specialize in research with impractical applications?  I'm inclined to think he might be right on that count if nothing else.

Um, yes, that's exactly what they mean. A lot of research is "pure" science with no practical application.
