Australian university students have finally been freed
from compulsory union membership, with the help of independent senator Steve Fielding. The student unions, which for decades have been controlled by extreme leftist "activists", and supported by the compulsory "contributions" of students who have no interest either in politics or in anything else the union has to offer, are understandably not impressed. Shortly after the vote, Senator Fielding's office was vandalised
Monash University Student Association president Nick Richardson [...] said he did not know anything about the vandalism of Senator Fielding's office, but believed it would have been the work of students. Robert Nicholas, education officer for the Queensland branch of the National Student Union, said the vandalism of Senator Fielding's office was a legitimate expression of students' anger at the bill. "He has made himself a political target by voting for the legislation so he'll have to live with the consequences," he said.
To quote Professor Digory Kirke, "Bless me, what do
they teach them at these schools?".
