Twittering with Wes Streeting

Seems the National Union of Students President, Wes Streeting, is a Labour supporter. “Activist”, I think is what they call them – the people who hand leaflets out. Why, when Labour introduced tuition fees, announced huge HE cuts recently, and has opened the way to removing the fee cap, I am not sure.

Perhaps because it is the wet-dream of all NUS Presidents (including Michael Payne, Lancaster Student Union President, for example) to be a Labour MP. NUS is for careerist Blairites. No wonder it is drastically out of touch with students. That both Mikey and Wes will soon be out of their jobs perhaps fortells in microbiotic terms the end of this New Labour period. I only hope such an end doesn’t fortell the beginning of a New Conservative era.

Time to revolutionise the NUS. I find myself looking back to the Paris students in ’66 who announced that their student union was a tool of oppression and undertook to dissolve it, and to the American Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) who helped constitute the American New Left and radicalise campuses. It’s time for the revolution we need.
