Young Liberals thrown out for drunkeness?

By Kerces - 23 July 2008 26

[First filed: July 09, 2008 @ 22:13]

The Australian Liberal Student conference is on in town this week (apparently).

Andrew Landeryou is running a story today claiming that more than 40 students attending the conference have been booted from the YHA due to “isolated cases of public drunkenness and hooliganism”.

His story contains conflicting reports as to whether these students managed to find further accommodation or not and whether members of the NSW Right faction (depicted oh so well in John Hyde Page’s Education of a Young Liberal) were ringleaders.

UPDATED: Two weeks later the Daily Terror is on the story

What’s Your opinion?

Again DMD, what can I say? Did the jibe about Bob affect you DMD. That says a lot.

I’m pretty sure you’re what was left behind in the bidet after an afternoon of passion between too men, Headbonius. You have a similar family to DJ (see marist thread). That’s why you love each other, because you’re also genetically disposed to inbreeding.

My god, I feel 12 again!

Anyway, although I despise the young liberals, I doubt that this should be an issue at all. Young people drink, that’s how they have excuses for making all the necessary mistakes one needs to make before adulthood. This is just a media beat up, I’m ashamed to say, on the left’s part. Come on, Australian Left! We need real political change, not bastardry.

Bob Brown? Is that his name? I thought it was what he left behind in the bidet after an afternoon of passion with his boyfriend. Thanks for educating me DJ.

The Greens were all smoking grass… and by that I mean grass clippings. Fools.

I was embarrassed by the address given by Bob Brown to the family of the most recently fallen Australian Soldier. I was cringing in an overseas airport where most of the travelers would have spoken English. Can’t the man put more than two words together when he isn’t preaching for land rights for gay whales?

I’m sure that’s how the Greens come up with most of their bestest everer ideas!

Nah, young Greens don’t drink.

Pretty sure they smoke though..

Mr Evil 5:17 pm 10 Jul 08

Let’s face it, most young politicians probably contribute more to their respective parties when they are completely off their tree.

I’m sure that’s how the Greens come up with most of their bestest everer ideas!

They’re just trying to enjoy alco-pops while they’re cheap! The LPA doesn’t want increased taxes on such drinks after all.

I’m not bagging them. Fer chrisakes, according to Rudd I binge drink every day of my life..

Besides, if these young blokes don’t get on the sauce at least a few times in their life their educations will not be fully rounded and they will grow up to be social democrats or scientologists.

Good to see that all sides are producing a younger generation of Dellabosca’s and Neals. But we should not bag them out, dont you know who they are?

Does anyone actually care?

Oh dear, a bunch of university students on a road trip (albeit a political one) got drunk. Oh the humanity…

I’m sure what these youngsters got up to is nothing compared to my (or other Rioters) drunken antics many years ago as a student or later as a chocko.

They should get together with the young laborites. They seem to have the same ideals about life in general 😉

Headbonius 7:42 am 10 Jul 08

I hope there was circle work, nope that would have been the nationals.

Gawd, didn’t they have a drunken conference just a few months ago? With floorsful of bottles found at their acccommodation?

I believe it was their Labor counterparts… but because this time it was the Liberals… I still don’t care.

they need to hold these events in a large paddock with a shed, I reckon, just get a truck and throw the booze over the fence at them and nick off quickly.
