“Who The Hell Is NZUSA?”
“Who the hell is NZUSA to criticise the Government’s new Bright Future programme?” is the response from Victoria University Young Nationals spokesman Philip Rennie to NZUSA’s bizarre criticisms.
“Out of seven universities, the New Zealand Universities Students Association has only three full financial members. They are undemocratic and have absolutely no mandate to speak for students.
“Their criticism of the Government’s innovative new strategy is entirely based on ideology and politics. Professional protesters like Karen Skinner would rather scream about APEC and third world debt than accept extra money from a National Government,” said Mr Rennie.
“Young Nationals don’t claim to speak for all students, but we are thrilled at the initiatives announced yesterday. It is great to see that academic achievers will gain more recognition and support, and be encouraged to stay in New Zealand.
Labour/Alliance bloc’s promises of taxes and handouts,
this strategy is about helping people and businesses to prosper with the right help and support.
“I am pleased
that some academics are worried about the planned tertiary
review. Hopefully they will be forced to justify the large
number of over-priced, politically correct courses that are
offered to students” concluded Mr
