The Auckland University Students’ Association has offered $5,000 reward to anyone who arrests US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during her visit to New Zealand this weekend.
What a bunch of halfwits.
The AUSA is in theory voluntary membership, but in reality Auckland University hands over a big dosh of money each year to fund them. That means either student money or government money is being used to find this reward.
All the more reason one should have true voluntary membership of student associations – no back door funding deals from universities as they have in Auckland and Canterbury. Let them be totally reliant on persuading students to hand over their money, and see how long such idiocy lasts?
