ANU Liberal Club up to old games

By thesource1980 - 26 March 2009 47

Insiders tell me the ANU Liberal Club is up to its old tricks and its going to get nasty. Who would have thought it from a bunch of future lawyers.

Bending their constitution to suit themselves. Holding meetings without timely notice. etc etc (Ho Hum)

They apparantly are no longer associated with the senior party, a little trick they pulled over the President.

So they can’t be pulled into line by anyone except their own members. Apparantly from what I hear they might need security at tonight’s irregular meeting as a few of them have annoyed one of their members who has some close friends in a local motorcycle club.

Could be interesting to watch a bunch of uni students change underwear muliple times. I wonder how they will go picking up the soap. It takes me back to that excellant movie deliverance – squeal like a pig.

So come along to The Tank at the ANU 6.30pm it should be fun.

What’s Your opinion?

‘disaffilitation’ and ‘constituion’ are my two new favourite words after ‘lerp’ …

THE FACTS
1. Notice to the AGM was sent out in accordance with the current constitution.
2. The main reason for disaffilitation with the party was to become affiliated with ANUSA
3. The main reason for changing the constituion is to allow for affiliation with ANUSA this year.
4. The second reason for changing the constitution is in order to simplify the executive. There seems to be no apparent need for two VP position, and after the past few years this seems completely unnecessary.
So, stop trying to make something out of nothing.

On number 2: No it wasn’t. The main reason was that the management committee of the actual party had ruled that the AGM was unconstitutional due to full notice as defined in the division constitution not being given until one day before the meeting, when it had to be sent a week in advance.
No, emailing that basically “there’s a meeting soon but we’ll tell you where it is later” is not notice.

“Put in the boot!” I sez. “Put in the boot!” “‘Ush!” sez Doreen . . . “Shame!” sez some silly coot.

The Rebels are a national motorcycle club, and I don’t think the Canberra chapter of Girls On The Move would do much (nor would they care much about an ANU Libs meeting).

” Apparantly from what I hear they might need security at tonight’s irregular meeting as a few of them have annoyed one of their members who has some close friends in a local motorcycle club.”

If you sup with the devil, be sure to use a long spoon.

Probably a Vespa.

oh and i forgot to mention, the motorcycle club won’t pay a visit. I think the motorcycle gangs have far more important people to bash than a bunch of loud ANU law students. I’ve seen them threaten each other before, they will just pull anything out of their ass to win an argument. The person who made the threat probably knows someone, who knows someone, who is a 2nd cousin, who has a brother that owns a motorcycle. non event really.

George said :

Yeah I am sure the Rebels and Young Libs have a lot in common and hang out all the time.

The author of this ‘story’ (and I mean story)is no doubt in the minority and has no pull within the Liberal Students thus the bitterness. Oh the bitterness!

Yeah but George I didn’t even know there was a minority anymore. After Ash had his final stand last year at the AGM, I was under the impression that all dissidents had been eradicated.

Frankly I’m amused.

I used to be a member of the ANU liberal club and saw this happening. I think people have just got ahead of themselves in trying to get positions, playing silly tactics etc. It just got too childish for me, and others felt the same way and quit. It’s been happening for about 2 years now. I decided not to renew my membership this year, as many people didn’t either.

Finally, ANU liberal club is NOT young liberals. I will correct everyone who says otherwise.

close friends in a local motorcycle club?

yeah…that sounds plausible!

jakez 3:22 pm 26 Mar 09

Well the independence of campus liberal clubs is an extremely important aspect, as is the independence of the Australian Liberal Students’ Federation. It allows the organisations to criticise the senior party which I view as one of ALSF’s most important functions.

That said, what? People still care about this? I’m glad I got over this crap last year. It’s a campus political club people. Join the real world, it’s actually quite good.

Ah, the exquisite combination of dull and vicious that is Student Politics.
