As you rightly note, league tables are at best bizarre. I suppose this one has other wrinkles – on the list appear 19 UK universities. So on top of the incredible list of research based criteria, it is also perhaps a historical footnote about a period of university building/development since the early 1960s. It provides an interesting global view – 19 UK universities; 13 Australian universities; 8 United States, and 5 from Taiwan.
I suppose on the bright side – at least, we got into the top 100.
