NUS April Fools' Hoax Goes Wrong

It was a very funny idea, or at least I thought so.

Hairy left-wing loonies on march against sensible Government policiesWe never came up with such a great stunt when I was NOLS National Secretary. Mind you, we never managed to find the CIA's phone number, either. The idea of a "Governance Review" leading to transformation of the National Union of Students from a campaigning, representative body into a professional lobby group and annual "celebration" organiser was brilliant. We all kept such straight faces as we proposed a "Blairite revolution" leading to the union being run by spin-doctors, professionals and an old boys' network of sabbatical officers.

The only problem was that the hairy left-wing loonies were supposed to believe it.

But they didn't. Damn!

Unusual not to hear anything from right wing toadies like you, Akehurst.
