Bloody students

Seen this? Story about NUS council members resigning because of failure to confront anti-semitism.

Generally think that students are filled with self-important fervour and I try to avoid them as much as possible. Nonetheless the story rings true.

There's plenty of coverage but I've taken this article from 'Harry's Place' as it has good links to the Guardian and the NUS.

I know! I mean, how come they still allow Jewish Societies on campus? :)

There's a conspiracy to allow them.
