NUS Conference Censor UKIP, Spin “All Parties Invited”

It’s NUS conference time and the parties have apparently been invited to send a video message to the hard left students. NUS President Toni Pearce could not be clearer:

“In the interest of fairness, all parties were invited to contribute.”

Except that’s not quite true.

The NUS press release states:

“Liberal Democrats Nick Clegg, Labour’s Ed Miliband, SNP’s Nicola Sturgeon, Plaid Cymru Leanne Woods, Minister for Universities, Science and Cities, Greg Clark, put forward by the Conservatives, relayed their parties youth message . UKIP’s Nigel Farage was not asked to participate as last year NUS conference passed clear policy influencing this, and the Greens failed to submit a video.”

So how exactly were “all parties were invited to contribute”?

An NUS spinner tells Guido that when Pearce says “all parties were invited to contribute” that meant “all parties except UKIP”.

So in fact the complete opposite of what was said.
