The bickering, backstabbing and pseudo-intellectual debate of student socialism.

Oh my good god...

NUS' 5 challenges just keep getting worse... and just to twist the knife our fulltime officers haven't even submitted a motion on it to the next national executive - so much for being accountable.

There are however two motions highlighting the continuing crisis in Iraq that is dogging Brown and has been on the front of the Guardian since his corronation was pushed into the middle pages - Iraq. Both the Stop the War Coalition motion to support the protest on the 24th June and the national petition and neo-liberal restructuring of the oil industry driven by the US/UK occupation.

Other motions include supporting the UCU action at Harlow college and supporting Ken livingstones plans to increase the London living wage by 15p and to promote it in the run up to the GLA elections next year. The motion on supporting a miliant campaign driven by UCU left members should be particularly important - standing in stark contrast to the sentiments expressed by other "independant" NEC members with their 5 sops from a Brown government plea.
