Apparently there were some crusty student types camping out in part of Glasgow University. Ho hum, hadn\’t heard a peep.
Anyway, they\’re claiming they\’ve won and that this is wonderful for all. One of the things they claim to have proven is:
From day one, our occupation sought to be more than just a protest. Through free lectures, debates and daily meals cooked in the building\’s kitchens, we attempted to demonstrate that there was an alternative model of education – and an alternative model on which to base society – at the heart of a university descending into a neoliberal nightmare.
How excellent, now given that we now know that a university can be run for free, on this alternative, very much not neoliberal, model, that\’s the Scottish Universities budget for the chop then.
Amazing what you can find out from students really, isn\’t it?
