Manchester Uni attempts to Ban the Military

#2
What a complete bunch of cunts!

Makes me fucking ashamed to be a student! (Not that I wasn't already ashamed to be a soap-dodger :D ).




They really do need a swift kick up the arrse.

Fcuk it. Let them - They stink anyway and are spineless idle cnuts. There are plenty more potential Rupert ponds to fish!
 
#4
In the event of any attack on Iran, to mobilise students to take whatever action is necessary to halt the
attack. Including occupations, demonstrations, teach-ins and direct action.

From the debate notes...does that mean violence by any chance? What a bunch of cnuts, makes you a ashamed to be a student.

Motion is set for Wednesday...PBI although they're not important outside of Universities it would set a precedent and would stop OTC URNU and UAS from recruiting...

Fock them thats probably your 'art students' all vicious communists anyway, they dont live in the real world spend most off their time smoking weed and taking bolloxs pictures of nothing. Manchester has an OTC so that would be interesting if they passed that, what would happen to it?

It does make you feel ashamed for being a student

3 Points they 'Resolve'.....

5. To ban the military of any country from union premises, and from all Freshers and careers fairs, and other similar events. - Should this not be decided by staff ??? Wonder if they would maintain that ban if 'terrorists' or Freedom Fighters as they would call them siezed a group of students hostage???

6. To do everything possible to support and publicise the campaign against military recruitment on our campuses - They can do this due to freedoms fought and paid for in blood by those same Soldiers they 'despise' although where is the democracy when they will do all they can not to let Recruiters have their say???

7. To steadfastly defend Students’ Unions democratic right to oppose the military in cases such as that of UCL where cliques manoeuvre to try and overturn the democratic will of the students. - Fine but I dont see them flying to Tibet to support Students there and they seemed very quiet over Tianamen Square.....

What would these cretins say if when the forces were told to intervine somewhere against a nasty dictator, such as a Mr Bush or a similar cause that they, the stoodents, supported, the forces turned around and said no, we won't?

I remember when the twin towers got hit. Next morning me and both my flat mates had horror of horrors a 0900 lecture. Having said that we ALL did at least 4 days a week (best time to go into uni. Most of the soap dodging cnuts are still in bed). This time however at 0815 right outside the union building there were about a douzen lined up getting signatures on a petiton "Don't attack Afganistan". They had even got T-shirts printed.

Needless to say we fcucked them off. I was the least military of us 3 and I had joined the RMR the week before.

A couple of years later the Stop the War coalition was trying to get support for the big daft march in London before Gulf 2. I decided to write a contribution on their banner when they asked me. Good job now of them checked because they would have had a sense of humour failure with "Peace through supperior firepower"

Manchester Uni has always been a hot bed of half baked left wing political ideas,ignore them,6 months after leaving uni,most of the SU kiddies will have forgotten it all and get back to whatever political ideas are expedient at the time

Hands up everyone who gives a rats about what happens in Manchester?

Or, B) around students?

Thought not.

Soap Dodger eh? Heh. You want to go about 80 miles North, hook a left, cross some water, swim ashore and ask to meet some proper soap dodgers.

Ask them what they did for their dissertation.

Spinless c unts obviously have no appreciation for human life and the sacrifices people make abroad and within britain intellagence to keep them safe.


I was getting drunk the other night at my friends' student flat, I was talking to 2 off his friends who were wanting to join the TA (I managed to sway them to the Engineers) and I was rudely interupted by a student girl who asked me to justify my time served in Afghanistan. I couldn't believe how someone could be so un-supportive and be so ignorant to the sacrifices that myself, and every other man does, and continues to do so out there.

While I take your point, what about the precedent? Will other unis follow suit and what does that mean for recruitment?? Also, I'll bite and say I imagine the army cares a good deal about students, given we're the next lot to go through the Big Green Machine...

It means rock-all for recruitment. People who want to join the OTC/UAS/UNRU will look mildly askance at the loonies with their strange hair, 'Make Evil History' wristbands and slightly staring eyes and go into the University-owned building where the OTC/UAS/UNRU will be signing up their people. They'll take an instant dislike to the 'activists' which will simply save time.

Nightrained - I hope you told student girlie that you were fighting to ensure that Afghan women had the right to an education, which they wouldn't have if the Taleban were still there, and that you presumed that her objection to this meant that she was obviously a neo-imperalist misogynist who wished to deny women in other countries the rights that she (student girlie) takes for granted? And then told her to get a brew on.

I find it interesting that Iraq and Afghanistan are constantly being referred to as "occupied" by our forces. I wasn't aware that we had enough troops in Iraq to occupy half of Basra effectively?!

Plus the reference to the international community being against both wars - can't argue against that regarding Iraq, really, but NATO is in Afghanistan, with a variety of countries (to a lesser or greater extent) being represented.

If they want to be taken seriously by people who care, they should at least present the correct facts. My Army Careers Advisor from school never pushed the Army, he used to just turn up once or twice a term to meet with those who were interested!

God, students vex my soul...

If only I did, I basically said that I wasn't a politician and I do not see a reason that I should go out there as a young soldier, THEN to come back to justify myself to a student who recieves loads of time off and has comfort, friends, family, freedom and every other luxuary, whilst my time was spent shivering in my dost bag and sweating all day whislt I was at FOB Dwyer. :x

oh it takes me back to college days.

I left just after GW1

Anyway, I was at college, and there was a crowd of cnuts shouting about "we want a jihad". I politely enquired as to their desires and wants, and was told "this is for the muslim people".

My reply, short and succinct, was "this is for the allies" and dropped him.

Always count on the squaddie to play the diplomat
