Mike Heine reveals the tactics used by the Otago University Students Association to defeat the campaign for Voluntary Student Membership.
From his Blog “On the Right”
“When I was at Otago University I helped the campaign to make the student union voluntary. We lost because although the law required both sides of the debate to be funded equally, the Otago University Students Association were given a ‘gift’ from the University Bookshop of around $30,000 for their campaign. As it was a donation they weren’t required to give us the same amount. However, as the OUSA owned FIFTY PERCENT of the Bookshop, it can hardly be argued that it was all above board.”
Dirty little totalitarians aren’t they? The trouble is a lot of these little Hitlers go on to bigger things.
