Andrei Not a pretty picture

The mess with the Whitireia Polytechnic Independent Students Association just gets bigger and bigger.

In my last post on the matter I speculated that the $750,000 that was missing might have been a misprint and the number was lower by a factor of 10.

Not so its over $1,000,000 now!

And the vice President and cousin of the President, pictured, at the time of this fiasco was not long out of prison it seems.

Charming.

I suspect that Sir Roger Douglas voluntary students union bill just might sail through Parliament.

Compulsory membership has created a student's association model which just isn't suitable.

Large assets, large income run by inexperienced and unprincipled activists on "on behalf" of large student bodies that simply don't care.

Associations should be small, tight bodies with minimal budgets on issues that will help the student body directly. Every student should be a member, but only because they support the organisation's direction.
