‘THEY see us as animals.’ Exactly. These are the final words spoken in this clip from a protester at Manchester University where students took matters into their own hands and pulled down a fence that, disgracefully, was being put up around their halls to imprison them.
This has been a long time coming and I am glad that finally the students are taking action. What has been done to this generation of students is criminal, and amounts to the biggest bait and switch in history.
As seen in contract law, bait and switch is where an attractive offer is made, but once you hand over your money you are given something very different indeed. This is exactly what happening to students this year. They were encouraged to go on to campus, told it was safe and that they would get a reasonable student experience. Instead they were locked up in their halls, had little contact with other students and there was pretty much no teaching. All for £9,000 a year in tuition fees alone, never mind living costs.
The universities and whoever else was behind this scam, this criminal enterprise, should be held to account. The university elite make the bankers who caused the 2008 crash look positively saintly. Consumed with greed, they have destroyed an entire generation with their actions this year. Yet the media are largely silent on it.
The protester in the clip explains why they are there: We have been lied to, they made us come here and yet continue to blame us for the spread of the virus. We have no access to green spaces or bars. ‘It’s not our fault,’ she yells.
It is not their fault: this is the fault of Boris Johnson, Matt Hancock, Michael Gove and many others.
‘They are profiting from our misery.’ Never was a truer word said. The protester does seem to think she is danger from Covid, which I disagree with. But they are in serious danger of Covid hysteria.
The only thing these universities understand is money. My only hope is that some ‘leftie law firm’ out there will bring a class action against the universities. Here, off the top of my head, are what they could sue for: breach of contract, false imprisonment, breach of a duty of care and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
It is sick, evil, criminal and wicked what the current student body has been subjected to. The architects of this misery should be held to account.
