The election of a blatant anti-Semite, Malia Bouattia, as President of the NUS is just one more sad symptom of how ill-educated our students are today, and how far education has slumped across the board. She thinks there are "Zionist-led media" and she defends Islamic terrorism. She thinks it's wrong for Jews to want one tiny little country of their own, where they can be safe from persecution, but it's all right for Islamists to take over the entire world.
There is little hope that this misguided young woman will respond to the petition for her to retract her remarks. Let's hope that she decides to run away to Syria, marry Jihadi John and have babies for ISIS.
Until she does, universities have the freedom to disaffiliate from the NUS, which has always been a breeding ground for political dogmatists and febrile nutcases. Three universities have so far done so: Hull, Newcastle and Lincoln.
There is little sign that Oxford students are keen to do so. No wonder, since they are far more pre-occupied nowadays campaigning to legalize "sex work" as they call it. The Oxford Student Union has announced in Cherwell that some students do "sex work" and it must be de-stigmatized! This claptrap is just what one would expect from the sort of sleazy types that run "No Heterox". Annie Teriba, Samuel M Horsley and the posturing trannies of Somerville History Society are far too pre-occupied with their "sexuality" to take any interest in world affairs. They've just got their heads firmly stuffed up each other's genderless underpants.
