Is it terrible that I don’t care about NUS? I just don’t give a shit. I get this overwhelming sense of nothingness. It is not a big elephant in the proverbial corner of my metaphorical room of student thought. I have spent the last couple of weeks thinking about my impending essay, my shrinking overdraft and a new pair of shoes.
It’s like party politics. If I vote red, blue or green I really don’t think my life is going to change that dramatically. Equally, yay or nay to NUS; York is still a concrete haven of mediocrity.
Yawn to voting. Wake me up when you’re going to change something and stop trying to impress me with always having the welfare of students at the heart of your plans. Fuck off you do. You’re lulling me into a false sense of security so that you can do what you like when you’re in power.
When the greater powers start being honest, or even vaguely interesting, maybe I’ll start to vote. Meanwhile I’m still a silly little drop in an overblown ocean of student politics.
