I heartily endorse your position – free food buys a lot of forbearance – but I do have to wonder what your reaction would be if you were offered a free lunch by, say, Paris Hilton, Mel Gibson and Pauly Shore, all in talkative mode.

Your little snippets make law school sound far more fun and attractive than it can possibly be. Kudos!

Hmm. Canadian Law School is obviously of a different standard than British Law School. All my conversations with my fellow Law Students are about how tired we are, how broke we are and how much we could do with a cup of tea.

Oh and The Mighty Boosh.

To be fair I think you could best describe the political mood of the campus as right of centre. But it’s really an apathetic form of conservatism. I’m on the Student Council and the only thing anyone ever wants to talk about is what kind of cups are in the coffee machine.

Kind of depressing really.

There are people who turn down free lunches?

“To be fair I think you could best describe the political mood of the campus as right of centre. But it’s really an apathetic form of conservatism.”

That’s all there is in the conservative youth movement anymore. Conservatives used to be the philosopher kings of the university campuses. Read this! Study this! We’ll discuss it at the next meeting. Since the Harris years, it’s been all keggers and elitism and the homeless deserve it. It wouldn’t bother me if they were Ezra Levant or Mark Steyn but they’re all Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly. Intellectually week.

Baldguy, you’ve just implied that you consider Mark Steyn – who is a twat – to be intellectually rigorous or something similar. This is deeply wrong.

Not even Mighty Bald KIng, those names would mean nothing to most of my fellow students. By Right of Centre I mean in the most pathetic “Well they ought to string him up, I don’t know why I pay my taxes, bloody immigrants, bring back national service” grumbling. Beyond parroting stuff they’ve read in the Daily Mail most people seem to have no interest in politics whatsoever. One guy even told to me that he’ll be voting for Cameron at the next election because “He seemed nice.”

Sorry. I need to stop grumbling.

Mark Steyn is indeed a twat, but he annoys Johann Hari – so his life clearly has some purpose.

Mark Steyn’s arguments are well constructed and follow a strict internal logic. It’s his axioms that are fucked up.

It-Box: You appear to be British. I’m writing from my North American viewpoint. Feel free to replace my names with your own, homegrown loonies. Here, we call them “Toronto Sun Conservatives.” The Toronto Sun is on par with the London Sun. – Boobies, oppressed white men and sports.

I recall being branded as the most horrible kind of “poor people deserve it” facist in university because I disagreed with the statement “all people have a right to complete a university arts education at their own speed, fully paid for by the public”.

I kinda miss being the token right-wing lunatic. I should go back.

…so, “Fraser Institute” is Canadian for “Heritage Foundation”?
