Why we need to end party politics in EUSA


One of the main aims at EUSA is to instil a belief in our readership that party politics within EUSA needs to end.

  1. Party politics means that EUSA becomes a training ground for career politicians. Student leaders are then acting to better themselves rather than represent the students that elected them.
  2. It would prevent "rent-a-mob" scenarios such as People & Planet swarming the AGM and dominating business there.
  3. It would create a more friendly and open system of government where people of any political persuasion are welcome. EUSA officials have openly admitted that they refuse to represent Tory-voters (who, in their opinion, are all racists and all homophobic). Thus, the left-dominated EUSA continues with no check and no hope for achieving the middle ground.
IT DISGUSTS EVERYONE AT EUSA-LESS THAT SENIOR OFFICIALS WITHIN OUR OWN STUDENT ASSOCIATION FEEL AT LIBERTY TO LABEL CONSERVATIVES AS "RACISTS" AND "HOMOPHOBES."

THE ROTTEN CORE AT THE CENTRE OF EUSA IS REVEALED WHEN THEY ALSO ADMIT THEY WILL NOT REPRESENT TORY-VOTERS. THIS IS NOT "BY STUDENTS, FOR STUDENTS."

THIS IS WRONG, WHETHER YOU VOTE TORY, OR NOT.

EUSA needs to change from a left-wing dictatorship to an open forum for debate where everyone is welcome. Ending party-political involvement would end the partisan hatred directed against anyone except Labour and the Greens.

EUSA officials, in particular sabbaticals, should be forced to renounce their official ties with any political organisation, club or party.
