    An NUS student to the left of Jezbollah, that's hardly a shock though
    Socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the abject worship of the state.

    No Socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently-worded expressions of public discontent.

    Let's see - Germaine Greer, Peter Tatchell... both accused of being discriminatory. Who's next?

    In the late 80s at Essex University there was a "no platform" policy adopted by the NUS. Many of the people behind it ended up being apparatchiks of Labour. This silly bint's stance is all about furthering her own political profile among similarly batty groups, who toe the ideological line while not giving one fig for individuals.

    So obviously no stopping Grandstanding then.
