NUS Vice-President: We’re “Failing” Jewish Students

Rob Young

Jewish students are being “failed” by the NUS, the group’s vice-president has admitted. In an interview with Jewish News, Rob Young, deputy to race row Malia Bouattia, blasts her for blocking Jewish students from having a say on who represents them:

“It seems the that the National Executive Council of NUS want to ensure that we are not working with UJS as closely as have in the past – and this is something I stand totally against. I will keep fighting to ensure that UJS are present at the table when we are working on the ARAF campaign… By making our spaces unwelcoming for Jewish students, we are not only failing to focus on these challenges, we are failing as a movement that represents all students.”

The organisation has come under near constant fire over anti-Semitic incidents and has seen a string of successful disaffiliation campaigns since April. If this is what their own VP thinks…

NUS Blocks Jewish Students From Having Say on Who Represents Them

Malia

Hard left members of the NUS have voted to block Jewish students from choosing their own representative on the union’s anti-racism committee. A vote to put a Jewish student chosen by other Jewish students back on the committee was rejected last night. Rather than consulting with the Union of Jewish Students, as happened in previous years, the NUS NEC will now pick their own comrade to serve on the committee instead. The motion was a close run thing, requiring a deciding vote from none other than NUS president Malia “Zionist-led media” Bouattia. You can guess which way she voted…

The UJS are understandably concerned, saying in a statement:

“Today, NUS NEC once again showed its complete lack of commitment to Jewish students by voting for a motion that means that Jewish students will have no say in who represents them on the NUS Anti-Racism, Anti-Fascism (ARAF) committee. It will now be down to NEC to elect the ARAF committee and therefore to decide on behalf of Jewish students who represents them. This decision is undemocratic and excludes the 8,500 Jewish students that we represent. It was no surprise that the NUS President, Malia Bouattia, who had the deciding vote, once again showed that she has absolutely no interest in defending Jewish students’ interests by voting to remove the ability of Jewish students to shape for themselves the student movements’ fight against racism and fascism.”

Another stunning success for the “Zio”-hating NUS…

NUS’ £3 Million Financer Votes to Leave

loughborough

The snowballing NUS disaffiliation campaign got another boost today – Loughborough Union’s trustees have voted to uphold the student referendum to leave the NUS. Loughborough is now the fourth University to disaffiliate, and in leaving will take the £2,822,491 they hand over to the NUS’ services organisation. Throw in a £50,000 annual affiliation fee and revenues from the sale of discount cards, and the NUS stands to lose cumulative revenues of around £3,000,000 from Loughborough alone. Loughborough, which consistently tops the British Universities and Colleges Sport leaderboards, is full of the kind of fun-loving boozy types the NUS hates. Let’s see how the defunded NUS copes without the money…

Hull University Third to Disaffiliate From NUS

hull nus

Hull University students have voted resoundingly to disaffiliate from the NUS, joining fellow NUSceptics in Newcastle and Lincoln. The Out campaign won nearly twice the votes of In, with 811 students in favour of leaving the union which just last month debated against commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day while electing a president who believes there is a “Zionist led media”Cambridge begins voting today, the disaffiliation movement is spreading…

NUS Chief Executive Paid Five Times Average Graduate

simon blake nus

The increasingly unpopular NUS faces its sixth disaffiliation vote this month, with the University of Cambridge holding a referendum as part of the national NUSceptic campaign to leave the loony-left union. With each member union paying sums as high as £50,000 into the NUS every year, the organisation’s focus on far-left policies rather than issues that matter to students could leave it with a massive financial black holeSo how are they trying to get back in touch…

In the 2015 financial year the NUS employed a new chief executive – Simon Blake – on a bumper £100,000 salary – nearly five times the estimated £22,057 average for graduates that same year. In total, the NUS employs 69 of its 237 staff – roughly one third – on £30,000 a year or more. With the top degree in terms of average earning being dentistry (at £30,348), Guido is sure struggling students will be happy that the fat cats in the NUS are safely earning more than they could ever hope to while facilitating riotous protests and debates over not commemorating holocaust memorial day. Guido calculates that, with an average students’ union bar price of £2.40, the costs of staffing the NUS could buy 3,856,835 pints – or roughly four pints per student. What would you rather have? Paid-up fun police or four pints…

Newcastle Votes to Leave NUS as Students Complain of Grindr Intimidation

The national campaign to disaffiliate from the NUS is picking up momentum, with Newcastle University announcing today that they will follow Lincoln in leaving the “Zionist-led media”-hating student bores. 67% of voters supported disaffiliation in Newcastle, after a campaign that mobilised nearly 1,000 votes against the NUS. And as control slips, the NUS are panicking…

In Exeter, co-conspirators report an NUS funded Project Fear-style campaign to stay, with the national student organisation sending 3,000 texts to students:

Leaked messages reveal paid up NUS employees such as the current president Malia Bouattia and a number of vice-presidents, as well as their apparatchiks from other universities, have been bussed in to Exeter en masse, even cajoling students in their own homes:

One source claims the Stay campaign is using gay dating app Grindr to push smears against Leave (branded “Exiter”). By bringing in outside campaigners, the NUS are flouting Exeter’s strict £60 campaign spending limit, changing the rules to fit their aims. Project Fear, use of large contact lists, breaching spending limits – all trademark campaign tricks of Remainers…

Lincoln University Disaffiliates From NUS

lincoln uni

Two week ago Guido brought you news of a national campaign to disaffiliate from the NUS, well since then the number of universities with campaigns to leave hasdoubled again to 25. Students disgruntled with the new “Zionist-led media” bashing president and attempt to block commemorations of Holocaust Memorial Day are set to be voting en masse to leave over the next few months. One university has wasted no time in doing so – Lincoln, which won the NUS Union of the Year Award in 2014, voted resolutely to leave the NUS last week, with the result announced today. Exeter and Newcastle are set to follow them on Thursday, where the union is begging students to stay on with texts and presidential visits. Students are starting to realise that it’s not worth being part of an anti-democratic, power-grabbing organisation run by loonies…

NUS Disaffiliation Campaign Doubles Support Overnight

nus HARRY SAMUELS NEWSNIGHT

The aftershock of the NUS’ disastrous conference continues to be felt. After the launch of a mass disaffiliation campaign yesterday, the number of universities looking to break ties with the NUS has doubled overnight. The sound unis are understood to be Oxford, Cambridge, KCL, LSE, Aberystwyth, York, Durham, Edinburgh, Sheffield, South Bank, Westminster, Bristol, Exeter and even Birmingham, the university of the new “anti-Zionist” NUS president Malia Bouattia. 372 people out of the 7 million individual students represented by the NUS voted for Bouattia…

Update: Students at Reading have now joined the campaign.

NUSceptics: National Disaffiliation Campaign From Loony Left Union

NUS quit

Students across the country reacted with disgust yesterday at the election of Malia “Zionist led media” Bouattia to the Presidency of the NUS. Coupled with an applauded attempt to stop the NUS specifically commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day, the far-left union involved in mass rioting and banning anti-racist campaigners for being racist truly jumped the shark.[…] Read the rest

Moment NUS Applauds Anti-Holocaust Memorial Day Speech

This is the moment a delegate at the NUS conference argued that Holocaust Memorial Day should not be commemorated as it is not inclusive enough to other genocides. Darta Kaleja, from Chester University, was applauded by the students in the room…

“Before I start I want to make it clear I am not against commemorating the Holocaust.

New NUS President Backed By CAGE, Believes Media Controlled By “Zionists”

The NUS has had its fair share of dodgy presidents. After a few years of relative moderation, the Labour finishing school has been reverting to its madcap 70s roots, banning Hope Not Hate coordinator Nick Lowles for being Islamophobic, defending the Millbank rioters, and ordering LGBT societies to get rid of gay male representatives as they “do not face oppression”.[…] Read the rest

Anti-Racism Campaigner Dubbed Racist By NUS

Hot on the heels of the no platforming of Peter Tatchell by right-on students, a group of NUS activists have decided to go one better and bar Hope Not Hate coordinator Nick Lowles from speaking at an event. Lowles, a left-wing anti-racism campaigner, is apparently too racist for the students, who have accused him of Islamophobia.[…] Read the rest

EU Blows €767,000 Telling Students to “Put on a Jumper”

Brussels has splurged €767,196 of taxpayers’ money funding a National Union of Students scheme promoting energy efficiency on campus.

The Gordon of Student Politics

Guido’s student politics days are long behind him, but sometimes there is BS too good not to call out.

Labour Students Line Up for Oldham Selection

Aaron Marius Porter hinted on the Politics Show that the NUS, a.k.a. him, may put up a candidate at the Oldham by-election, triggered ironically by the disgrace of a former NUS President. The NUS press office is in a mess this morning, but apparently Porter is denying he would stand independently, which makes sense given he would take votes from Labour and jeopardise his chance for a safe seat in 2015.[…] Read the rest
