NUS President Slammed in the House

Embattled NUS President Aaron Porter’s disastrous handling of demolition day has been slammed at Policing Minister Nick Herbert’s emergency session called in the House to dissect yesterday’s events. Peter Bottomley, Charle Elphicke  and Nadine Dorries poured water on the spin that it was a few minorities who were nothing to do with the NUS, citing photographic, film and eyewitness accounts that NUS officials were involved in the violence.

Matthew Hancock accused Aaron Porter of inciting the violence with its “demolition” and “rioting” branding of the event. Along with footage, Guido is analysing the leaflets they were handing out are also being investigated.

The Minister admitted:

“there was clearly a failure on the behalf of the NUS in planning having previously had a good relationship with the Police.”

A bit of  an understatement really.

Amongst the rhetoric and the marches, at the end of the day NUS is meant to be a lobbying group, if members have no faith in the President how is his position possibly tenable? Other MPs complained that the NUS had not lobbied them, bar some social media, and had instead merely restored to violence. The overwhelming number of questions asked why there was such a spectacular police failure. It’s quite simple – Aaron Porter failed.
