Vicki Baars, who as Vice President of the National Union of Students was forced to apologise for suggesting chants for an NUS demo such as ”Build a bonfire, build a bonfire, put the Tories on the top, put the LibDems in the middle and burn the f*cking lot!” and calling for “class war” against the Government, has decided that she would make a fine President of the NUS.
I sincerely hope that no rational person votes for her. As a student Liberal Democrat, I would resent effectively being made to be a member of an organisation fronted by somebody that has used such violent, aggressive language about students.
Anecdotal evidence from the recent past suggests that there is a lot of hostility and aggression towards Liberal Democrats at NUS events (I daren’t even imagine what a Conservative student would have to put up with) and tolerance and pluralism won’t flourish with people like this running the NUS.
