Cambridge University students vote against promoting Remembrance Sunday

Read up on Horace Smith Dorian, his disobeying a direct order almost cost him his career.
Or , 'I see no signal'.
Or Sir John Moor in the Peninsular where he disobeyed Wellington's direct order and was congratulated by the great man for getting it right.
I have no problem with legalising drugs, but not for any disciplined force where the members rely on each other for their lives.
BTW I had the Chief of Colchester Police demanding I be Court Martialled in 1983 for disobeying him.
The Colonel politely refused.
Choosing which order to obey is fine, so long as you know what you are doing and get it right.
It also makes for a most satisfying life.
They disobeyed a single order and it went right for them. You are nowhere near them. You allowed people who not only broke military law but were also open to blackmail to continue to serve while ignoring the law breaking yourself. Nowhere near the examples you gave.

As for drugs it's your opinion that a disciplined force shouldn't take them. Other people ha e different opinions, which clearly they should be allowed to put into practise because we get to choose what we want to obey based on our opinion.

You keep going on about this blackmail stuff but the only case I remember were some Scalies who had straight sex with prostitutes in Cypress. This would '80 or '81.
Still you are fun to play with.

You probably wouldnt get to know if bufties were being blackmailed. It certainly happened in the spy world. Why would foreign agents not take advantage of people participating in activities that would cost them their job and/or embarass them?
I'm sure you know this though.

For once you have made a sensible post.
I do not know how positive vetting works but would hope this problem would be discovered during that process.
How many of the Cambridge Five were gay? Genuine question.
 
At my College of Knowledge the equivalent were the 'Bilingual Secretaries', which is a description hard to pronounce after a few mugs of Red Barrel.
You used to drink Red Barrel?

Dear God. And there was me thinking you were a man of some taste ...

The High Wycombe College of Advanced Studies in Technology and Art had a fairly grotty SU Bar. Luckily, there were a number of fellow students who also belonged to my TAVR unit who shared my tastes in booze; Mateus Rose might have been in there if it was cheap enough, and it could be sampled on the Paddington train without discovery. Many, many years later at Loughborough, (and being more serious about tertiary education) there were occasional tastings of Pinot Grigio and/or Guinness/Laphroaig.
 
That right Oddbod I completely made up all the fake outrage stories that we see every year around late October.
You fat chod.
Oh look; moving goalposts.
You
You completely made up the "nobody gives a shit about the army" claim, you serial throbber.
 
I was looking at their range only today. What do you recommend?
I bought one that I fancied the look of yesterday, having experienced one or two very good malts from there in the past: 'Abrachan', 'Blended Malt Scotch Whisky' at 42%vol. Supposedly blended in three different types of oak cask; American Bourbon, Spanish Oloroso and Portugese Tawny Port. Produced by 'Clydesdale Scotch Whisky Co' of Glasgow,

(- quick gargle-) It's very nice, and those three influences are certainly evident, if not fully differentiated on the tongue.

And at £17 for 70cl I don't care.


Edit: Cambridge bastarding students my arrse.
 
The rigours of the degree are a factor in student politics. Those with even a reasonably testing degree use the SU bar for socialising while often discussing the work, especially those who want a 1st or a 2:1 in their chosen subject.

Those who are happy to scrape a Desmond or make do with a Thora, or those doing a slack course are those more likely to fill up the time with student politics. Plus, most students don't care or know about student politics, so most of the drivel goes unnoticed.

A Desmond or a Thora?

Err no fatty, its the same thing, no one give a shit about how we live, veterans problems, etc until late october, then the usual internet bollocks up with Memes on not offending Muslim with Poppies and fake outrage stories about hard done by hero veterans.
