Many thanks to Ciaron for the Labour Students event last night. I say "many thanks" in a loose way as I'm paying for it now.

There is an urgent need for our party's students to become active on our campuses. In the 2005 general election, every East Midlands, Labour held constituency with a high student population swung away from Labour by at least twice the national average. There is real evidence that active Labour clubs in our Universities can help stop this trend.

For more information on joining them, or donating to their cause, see here.

I think you underestimate the power of students who are Labour, if not Labour Students itself.

Students from the Labour Party undoubtably brought about victories in areas where councillors were unwilling to do the most basic of campaigning, yet it is these same students who are forced into the rigidity of Labour Students, where debate is stifled despite being officially an affiliate rather than just the cheerleaders that they have become.
