      I don't understand why the national media cares so much about what students are up to.

      Every week there's a story about a handful of them doing something stupid. Just ignore them FFS.

      Slightly misleading headline. The headline should be something like "students attempt to change the wording of university rememberence events to be inclusive of all those who suffered due to war (which is really bad) but people overreacted and there's not much local news going on so this is good for us"

      Not that I agree with the students, but it certainly wasn't "kicking out plans to honour britains war veterens"

      Ah screw it: "BURN THEM!!!!!! THIS COUNTRY IS F***ED"
      Reading the OP - "At a vote during a council meeting on Tuesday night, students initially accepted the new version. But a final vote later saw it scrapped altogether - including the original - with members saying the amended motion was too vague. Neither motions were supported." - it appears that they did in fact 'kick out plans to honour Britain's war veterans.'

      Clearly the debate, and again, I'm NOT supporting all this nonsense, was around the wording of the motion, not around remembering those who died. The very fact an amended motion was raised, to be MORE inclusive, clearly means the students weren't KICKING OUT the concept of remembrance day. In fact they actually wanted to highlight the awfulness of war as a whole. They failed to agree on some pinickity wording because they are all fools who lost sight of the fact that it didn't really matter in the grand context.

      Again, nothing to see here and over -sensationalised nonsense.

      You'd hope those involved in the 'debates' have woken up and realised how silly it all was.

      Exactly this, it's the same with the jazz hands thing last week. It's just students being students shocker. They've done this nonsense for centuries, including sticking their genitalia in a dead animal's mouth.

      "Proposals for honouring Britain's military veterans 100 years after the end of the First World War were kicked out during a heated debate by the university's students' union council. The motion was described by some objectors as "imperialist propaganda".
      I rest my case!

      I do agree with you though that the silly young sods need to give their head a wobble. All the groups they probably positively endorse and support - gays, the physically and/or mentally disabled, the mentally ill, socialists, liberals - all would have been culled in a Nazi run Britain. So maybe they should recognise that the jingoistic warmongers that they want us all to forget about actually fought for the rights - and indeed the lives - of those very same groups that they champion a damn sight harder than they do!

      Yes, that's right. People who go to Oxbridge struggle to find gainful employment

      Whatever happened to the Cambridge University Netball Team ?
      Indeed. My daughter interviewed a student from Cambridge who proudly announced she was in CUMS on her CV. I believe the acronym is the Cambridge University Music Society, and hopefully not Mastu . . .
