On Friday night I overheard the following at a party:
You know that c*** at Uni who you couldn’t stand? That’s the kind of guy who’s controlling the parties and through them the country.
The Canberra Times yesterday had a piece on infighting amongst the next generation of factional warriors at ANU which has completely scuppered the student newspaper Woroni (you’ll have to make do with wikipedia as the website has been a casualty of hostilities).
At issue is the student politicians running the paper trying to use it to attack the rival tribe running the Student’s association which in turn has the power to veto stories.
Which is sad for ANU, now without a student paper.
On the other hand, at least the parties have an ongoing supply of vindictive sods well drilled in doing “whatever it takes” for the smallest of prizes.
