      What do we want? iPhone 6 and Ugg Boots.

      Perhaps if they paid for their fees, and valued the service, Irish university world rankings might be worth facepainting about.

    Pointless. At least the president of the USI is honing those important organisational and logistical skills needed to be employed by a large political party, you know, like all the other SU ‘leaders’.

      “All other SU leaders”? I’ve known six people who were SU leaders (officers of the union for a year). One is a bank manager, one is a pharmacist, two are teachers, one is doing something in America I don’t understand but that isn’t related to politics and one works for the Revenue.

      Retract your “all” please.

    ah it’s a great day out all the same, getting all cold in your hoody and converse until you can all run back to the student union for some cheap beer and hopefully get to sit near that wan you’ve had your eye on since enrollment

    I must say the student’s unions and the trade union movement have really been at the vanguard throughout the whole economic crisis.

    Ireland must have the laziest, most inept unions in the world, or is the only country in the world with trade unions that are right-wing.

      I’d go with lazy, It matches the Irish people’s attitude of not giving a flying f**k to a bank guarantee (which led to a bailout), high unemployment and emigration, stealth taxes, welfare cuts (to the lesser off), USC, etc.

        Well some of the Irish people care about water charges but that’s about it.

        The Irish, a great bunch of lads to walk all over and take the EU’s burden.
