My first pit thread so please be gentle…
OK for those who don’t know, the tuition fees for attending UK universities are about to treble to £3,000. But that isn’t what this rant’s about, ohhh no. My beef is with the fcuking retards at the NUS (National Union of Students) who seem to think it would really be a great idea to protest about having to pay tuition fees by going on strike.
Are you completey stupid? Do you not know the general principle behind strikes? When the firefighters go on strike the general population is left without fire cover. When the coal workers went on strike, there was a coal shortage. When the car workers went on strike, the car manufacturers didn’t sell any cars. But when students go on strike, who loses out? I’ll tell you who - the students, yes that’s US you fucking morons. WE lose out by not turning up for lectures. NOT Tony Blair. NOT the government. NOT the universities. But US. We are at university for OUR benefit, not turning up will only affect us.
So NUS - if you want to say you represent me then do something useful, don’t go protesting whenever George Bush sneezes offensively, and DON’T ORGANISE STRIKES THAT ONLY AFFECTS THE PEOPLE STRIKING.
Ahh, that’s better.
