Kent UKIP Students Social Event BANNED By Liberal University
In a startling move last week, University of Kent Students Union banned a social event organised by the Kent UKIP Students Society, which a Student Union representative said “caused discomfort and frustration among the Muslim community on campus”.
An email was sent to Joe Simons, Kent UKIP Students Chairman saying that the event would not be allowed and threatened to disband the UKIP society if they did not obey their commands.
The event, which was a satirical commemoration of the First Crusade, invited attendees to don “crusader attire” and encouraged “infidels” to attend, in what was a poke of fun at the raging political correctness of modern students and universities.
Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, Joe said: “Up until this incident we’d been pleasantly surprised by how Kent [Students] Union were willing to cooperate with us. Unfortunately, this incident has proved otherwise.
“The social we had planned involved nothing illegal, nothing disruptive and nothing exclusive. We don’t believe that it’s appropriate for a student union to police what societies do when off-campus. We wanted to see as diverse a range of people as possible at our event, which we made very clear on our Facebook page, but this evidently wasn’t good enough for a small minority of students. Our plan for a couple of pints on a Friday night was shut down by a small group of politically-correct pound-shop Machiavellis who were too afraid to talk to us directly so instead went behind our backs to the Union.
“Regardless, we are very grateful for the huge amount of support we’ve received from UKIP members and the general public about this! As long as these PC student busybodies don’t try to shut down our end-of-term screening of Zulu next month I’m sure we can call a Christmas truce!”
In a statement after recieving the email, Kent UKIP Students said:
