It’s been over 30 years since I was a university student, but it appears that Student Unions have since become such important organisations that they now have Chief Executive Officers. Amazing. Yesterday I emailed the Student Union firstname.lastname@example.org at the University of Bedfordshire http://www.bedssu.co.uk which is centred in Bedford, where I’ll be standing as a prospective parliamentary candidate in 2015. I offered ‘a 30-minute presentation about the state’s ever-worsening assaults on the interests of men and boys’. I’ve just received the following email from the Student Union’s Chief Executive Officer, Michele Flynn Michele.email@example.com:
Thank you for your email. This is not a proposal Beds SU has interest in pursuing.
Doubtless Ms Flynn consulted widely among both male and female students before coming to the decision to stop me giving a 30-minute presentation to students at her University. Or perhaps… here’s a crazy idea, but let me say it anyway… she didn’t?
