Nanny Bans Racks

Loyal readers may recall that back in March I wrote the following:
"Nowadays some students seem to take themselves far too seriously, as Madeline Grant (who is reading English lit and languages at St Hilda's Oxford) found to her cost recently.

Miss Grant was standing for election as Oxford Union Librarian, and her election flier stated:

I don't hack, I just have a great rack."

She went on to say that she was "
committed to helping members pull" after she organised a "sell-out Valentine's social".

Needless to say some Nanny brainwashed students had a major sense of humour failure, and branded the material as "deeply offensive".

Fellow students accused her of "damaging the perception of women" and showing a “distinct lack of judgement”.

Miss Grant's manifesto was therefore censored
Unfortunately for Ms Grant, her student Union seems to be run by a right bunch of humourless individuals. Not content with censoring her manifesto, and disregarding the fact that she lost, the Union summoned Ms Grant to appear before a committee recently.

They subjected her to a four-and-a-half hour grilling, then fined her £120.

I have no idea if Ms Grant paid the fine but, quite rightly she has quit the Union.
What ever happened to students having a sense of humour and supporting free speech eh?

    Irrespective of the rights and wrongs of what was contained in her manifesto, the action of the student union raises an important legal question: does that body have the power and authority to impose fines like this? Instead of paying, why didn't Ms Grant simply walk out of what, to me, seems to have been a 'kangaroo court' after telling them to take a running jump?

    She would have done well to ignore the summons completely.

  3. It’s a beautiful shot.simple but full of meaning, zen photography .. I really like this,Dedicated to exposing, and resisting, the all pervasive nanny state that is corroding the way of life and the freedom of the people of Britain.

  4. 2 Points I'd like to make:

    1. If wants to describe her boobs as "a rack" she should be allowed to; but
    then are we going to allow some well endowed chap to talk about his "marvellous hose"? Personally I wouldn't object, but an awful lot of people would, and what we have with Madeline's chest is what is sometimes called "feature creep"; and it can be difficult to know exactly where to set limits on what one can talk about, and how one talks about it. I will never forget, during my time at Durham, a young lady turning up late to a Philosophy lecture walking in and saying to the lecturer in front of 100 undergraduates (first year Logic); "Sorry I'm late, but I spent the whole night shagging." Luckily the lecturer had a quick turn of phrase and replied "Personally I prefer carpet squares."

    2. In the 1980s we all had to be members of the NUS, who supported that shithead Scargill and his Commie scum. I was not happy about this; when I made my views known, and tried to leave the Union, I was told that as the Union had a closed-shop agreement with Durham, if I left the Union I would be kicked out of the University; autres oeurs, autre coeurs!

  5. Sorry; "autres moeurs, autre coeurs"; serve me right for trying to pose with a French phrase!

    Too many left wing cretins preparing at university for a life in politics.

    They all seem to have a common purpose.
