Chaser’s writer slams VSU
Dom Knight (a former writer on the Aussie show The Chaser’s War On Everything) has posted a long, scathing attack on Voluntary Student Unionism, and on the Rudd government for not getting rid of it more immediately. They’re reversing some of the damage that Howard did, but are still fucking around.
Dom sums the whole situation up well:
No-one seriously objects to the government funding Olympic athletes, or running an art gallery, or paying for community centres, so why is it any worse when a university or a student union does it?
John Howard destroyed our valuable campus culture to make an unimportant ideological point, and the sooner his work is undone, the better.
Worth the read.
