YBF 7 - TB's Last Speech

It's that time of year again when the Young Britons' Foundation hold their annual conference, this year it's going international with a delegation from the States coming too.

TB will be speaking, probably for the last time under such pseudonym, and the whole weekend is always a good laugh as well as a brilliant chance to hear and learn from the brightest and biggest names on the right.

Get your tickets and find out who else is speaking etc

Aaron's Warped Reality

Aaron Porter has rambled on once again about the

"tiny minority
" of trouble makers, that included his own NUS committee members. The following were witnessed or photographed at the riot outside Millbank

Mark Bergfeld, NUS NEC
Vicki Baars, NUS LGBT Officer
Sean Rillo Raczka, NUS NEC Mature Students’ Rep
Alan Bailey, NUS LGBT Officer
Kanjay Sesay, NUS Black Students' Officer
Matt Bond, NUS Disabled Ctte

One question Aaron. Does this look like tiny?
The NUS President is clearly delusional if he thinks he is not to blame for what happened. He's clearly been hanging out too much with other delusional "it wasn't me guv" types, like disgraced expenses crook and former Labour MP Shahid Malik who he invited on the march:

Just do the right thing Aaron and man up.

CF Splits on Porter

A pretty pathetic statement from CF concerning yesterday's riot at CCHQ. Ben Howlett who has boasted before of his closeness to Aaron Porter refused to call from him to go despite the pleas of his executive. The official wet line is:

"As representatives of the Conservative Party's student organisation we
welcome the NUS' comdenation of those individuals who hijacked yesterdays
protest and committed serious acts of violence and mindless vandalism
during yesterday's protests. We now look forward to them taking swift
action against those NUS officers who played their part.

"And we call on the leaders of the NUS to recognise the fact that the vast
majority of students, who did not attend yesterdays’ protest, do believe
that those looking to enter university should share in paying for the cost
of their tuition."
Vice Chairman Clare Hilley
has stuck the boot in:
"Hollow sound bites and pathetic excuses from the organisation’s President Aaron Porter speak volumes about just how out of touch the NUS is with it’s members. The only way to draw a line under this tragic state of events is for its current President to do the right thing and step down."
Those officials look set to be named and shamed....

Update: Ben says he want Porter to go, he just didn't seem to have put that bit in the statement.

Pressure Mounts on NUS President Aaron Porter

This letter landed in TB's inbox this morning and he is sure that the ringleader of yesterday's fun and games - the President of the National Union of Students - Aaron Porter a) did not sleep well last night, and b) will face the wrath of those students who wanted to protest peacefully.

Aaron Porter's appalling planning of yesterday's protest has left the already bruised reputation of the NUS in tatters and to suggest that Mr Porter could be allowed to oversee another such demonstration is laughable.

He was in charge, and as soon as it went wrong he did a runner, sending a mere tweet, spinning that it was just a
couple of bad eggs
. The truth is there were thousands of students he could not control.

It was immediately clear that he could not, and had not, properly briefed the police with exactly who he had invited, and in many cases bussed in, to his big day.

Dear Mr Porter,

I want to bitterly complain about the behaviour of yourself and your staff. I attended today’s protest as a civil servant and a Birkbeck College student. My efforts to join you were met with abuse and threats of violence. I think the level of violence and intimidation is well known to you so I will not elaborate further.

In my view, you should resign as you failed to properly control your event. I am appalled by the fact that you left the scene and spent time conducting media interviews while you should have been taking responsibility for the violence and hatred you unleashed. It was also sad to see that your cowardice in this matter was followed by your stewards, all of whom had retreated when the risk to the public was greatest.

I think that in this difficult period real leadership is best displayed by having the decency to admit you were wrong and accept the consequences. Can you imagine the NUS limping on with you in charge?

Should you wish to discuss this with me personally my number is 07███ ███ ███.

Yours in sadness,

Andre Walker

TB feels it could be a tricky day for Mr President, he spoke to him briefly yesterday in the Sky News studios and Mr Porter was adamant he was not going to blame the police. If that is the case then who else could possibly be responsible for such a spectacular cock-up? The police say they were not warned. Why not Aaron?

Can Aaron Porter be sure that no NUS hacks were involved in the destruction of Millbank Tower and 30 Millbank?
