"There is no sense in repeating, with a local, inexpert UK panel,
what has already been done by each individual journal by purpose-picked,
qualified experts."

There is also no sense in gratuitous insults. The RAE panels are chosen
from the most senior, experienced and expert academics in their respective
fields in the UK. While one might agree that using such people for this
purpose is unduly expensive and extravagant, they are well qualified to
peer-review the work of others in their discipline.
