If 'ALL' students are lazy scum, then surely, that must mean 'EVERYONE' who looks at the Countryside Alliance website is a cousin marrying, inbred cnut, who stinks of shit and is incomprehensible?

Well he can add that to the list of other syndromes he is afflicted with, one of them being "downs" perhaps. :roll:

You obviously have never seen the film, where the young nurses 'take the temperature' of Wilfred Hyde-White using the Daff...

That's exactly what I was hinting at

Incidentally I have been trying to find someone with Down's Syndrome to conduct an experiment with; so I find that statement offensive.

I gather that people with Down's Syndrome have exactly the same number of chromosomes as a gorilla, therefore it is possible, in theory at least, to create a monkey-man progeny.

Could any science types confirm or deny this fact?

I shall keep all interested parties informed of any progress...

Yours in teratology

True but it would be a small price to pay to not have Film and TV Studies, or Surf Studies, or tw@ts with elaborately structured hair mincing about the place talking about post-modernism.

I for one would happily live in a State of Nature to not have to put up with such inconvenience.

Incidentally last time I was on an operating table was last summer, and the surgeon, who was a family friend, went to a South African university; therefore he does not qualify as UK student scum.

On a more serious note, the real problem in universities is the recent decision of the AUT to boycott Israeli universities and academics; something very wrong is happening on almost every UK campus.

Anti-semitism is the biggest problem with UK higher education now; for further evidence look at the situation in SOAS.

Yours in concern

It seems more plausible that the young are succumbing to the material complacency that is paralysing the peoples of several western democracies, rendering them apparently unwilling to consider idealistic issues at all.
So?

Show me an ideal that has worked in practice and I might get interested, but until that point go away. Material complacency is a strange phrase to use, is it supposed to mean that I'm complacent because I have all the gadgets associated with the 4th largest economy in the world? Should I renounce it and live off a complacency free diet of grass and badger poo? Lets have a quick rundown of some past western ideals:

National socialism; what a winner that turned out to be.

Communism; nice try but that experiment can hardly be called a success can it.

Religous orthodoxy; we binned that idea as soon as Cromwell died and have never looked back. I wonder why?

Capitalism; well, it may be messy, nasty and unethical but it has seen the UK well for several hundred years now. It may be far from perfect but it does work.

All in all I think this article is just an editorial musing and not actually worth any serious discussion. If it is intended to be serious then I for one think it 's a big bag of smelly shite.

Just because I am ignorant, does anyone care to tell me how many student protests have succeeded in changing things in recent years. How many of the changes that have come in that affect the student popualtion happenend despite student activism?

amended - When did public opinion carry any weight with the present government? whether it be student protestors or otherwise?

I hate students (except any student that has/is anyway related to anyone on arrse) and f*cking bogus asylum scum and....the list is to long :wink:

Well, first I must apologise to all over-sensitive student types out there.

With regards student protests achieving anything, Tiananmen square certainly created a lot more work for the Chinese army; someone had to clean bits of student out of the tank tracks, and someone had to sweep all the bits of student up.

What I was complaining about was not so much the lack of student protests, but the all pervasive apathy, that has pervaded every aspect of higher education. It is no longer about learning; it is about getting as many people through the door, as quickly as possible, with minimum engagment.

If half of all school leavers are supposed to enter higher education in the next five years, what are they going to study? Do they care what they study? Or is another three years in education simply a way to avoid the rigours of the real world?

Yours in clarification

The protests may not have done much but the student protesters of the 60's are now the "establishment", there is an irony in there somewhere.

Wouldn't it have been easier to write that first instead of the crap you originally wrote?

The May 1968 Paris student riots had a fundamental impact on French and Wider European society. The Paris Student Riots are now seen as a major watershead event in France. As Charles Dickens put it about an earlier French Revolution, "They were the best of times, they were the worst of times. Surely the virtual open warfare in the strrets of Paris during those May days shattered the old order in France more surely than any popular uprising since the Great revolution of 1789. Students and police clashed around burning cars and barricades. Half the French work force struck in solidarity-freezing the gears of a society which at the time was enjoying record prosperity. As a result, the mighty Charles de Gaulle fell from what had seemed a presidency for life
