Lincoln Member of Parliament applauds University of Lincoln’s students‘ decision to leave the National Union of Students

Karl McCartney JP MP, Member of Parliament for the City of Lincoln, has warmly welcomed this week’s decision by students at the University of Lincoln to be the first student union to disaffiliate from the National Union of Students. 

 

Karl is a former Student Union President at St David's University College in Lampeter.

 

Karl McCartney JP MP, Lincoln’s Member of Parliament, said; “I want to applaud the students at the University of Lincoln for their very sound decision to leave this awful organisation. The fact they were the first, continues to highlight how this great University is leading the way in the UK. The whole City should be proud of their actions.

 

“Even when I was President of a Student Union, the NUS did not support the views and interests of mainstream students, and it is far far worse now. It has been infiltrated by the Far Left supporters of Jeremy Corbyn and is now a hotbed of extreme political correctness.

 

“The fact the NUS think the sensible decision made by the students at Lincoln is wrong shows how out of touch they are.  I hope this means more Student Unions across the UK will follow Lincoln’s lead.”
