The case of Richard Li's university education echoes a controversy in Britain surrounding politician and author Lord Jeffrey Archer. The self-made man appeared to have suggested that he had studied at the renowned Wellington College public school in Berkshire and taken an MA from Oxford University. It turned out this was all a misunderstanding. Lord Archer had actually been to the considerably less well known Wellington school, in Somerset, and his time in Oxford was spent studying for a postgraduate diploma for which he was not qualified. It then emerged that a certificate he had for an American body-building course had been mistaken for an American university degree. Despite the confusion, Lord Archer still rose to become the president of the university athletics club and joined the Oxford Union. He then developed a taste for politics, which was to prove both his making and breaking as he was later hit by a series of scandals. The Conservative Party patrician is now facing a trial for perjury amid allegations he encouraged a friend to lie in a libel trial.
