Nowt to do with being "woke".The woke don't do irony.
It'll be some attention-seeking 19-year old student politics tw*t, probably from the Socialist Workers Students Society, rebelling against the horror of mater and pater sending them to that expensive school, desperate to get an internship in London, and utterly convinced that this is the way to get the "right" sort of publicity onto their CV.
Just like it was, nearly every other time a Students' Union renamed their building the "Mandela Centre", or announced it was a nuclear-free zone, or that all of the products in the shop were cruelty and exploitation-free, or calling for the demolition of the statues of slaveholders. Normally when the meeting wasn't quorate, because there were only fifteen members of the mutual back-patting society present.
As @Archimedes has pointed out, there's normally a backlash one meeting later, when the newly-motivated UOTC/Rugby Club/Hockey Club descends mob-handed upon the Students' Association to vote through an entirely new set of motions, and those fifteen members of the mutual back-patting society (and their buddy on the podium) suddenly discover that democracy is a cruel and heartless thing...
