University Student Disrespects the War Dead

It is disappointing, especially as we approach the centenary of the Armistice, that the President of the Student’s Union feels that it is acceptable to disregard the heroic sacrifice of soldiers who sought to defend the very freedoms, including free speech, which Miss Dawes has chosen to exercise. However, with freedom comes responsibility and considering the President of the SU holds a position of authority she has clearly overstepped the mark.

I hope she will reflect on what she has said and realise it has been conducted in poor taste. Those who know the history of our island are fully aware and and appreciate the involvement of black and Asian soldiers against tyranny.

    I find it sad that someone who could possibly become a future leader in our society has views which show a lack of respect for those who have fought and died for not only this country but a large amount of the civilised world in the past.
    Maybe she feels that life would be better if she had grown up under an administration controlled by NAZI ‘s!

    My wife feels that she is disrespectful of the war dead, and probably does not deserve to hold a position of authority
