Hitting back is Sunderland University third-year PR student Stephen Davies. 'The last thing the profession needs is someone in a position like Mr Collins to criticise the very people who may look to emulate him one day,' he rages.
Meanwhile, Leeds Met second-year student Elizabeth Warburton writes: 'I hope that Magna Communication's (sic) next intake proves Collins wrong.'
She adds, somewhat cheekily: 'I graduate in 2008 if he cares to drop me a line.'
Collins remains bullish: 'I hope she shows more initiative and actually contacts me! Frankly, "I've got a degree so employ me" just won't do.'
That's enough now, folks.
