    Free Booze For Tories! New Academic Building (NAB) Opening Party, Goldsmiths

    22 February · 17:00 – 20:00

    New Academic Building, Goldsmiths
    Behind Richard Hoggart Building on Lewisham Way

    Finally our New Academic Building is being officially opened and to celebrate Goldsmiths management are holding an invite-only party. To this prestigious event they have invited Archie Norman to officially open the building.

    Clearly Archie Norman (as the only FTSE 100 chairman to have sat in the house of commons, ex Tory MP, multi-millionaire, chairman of ITV, owner of private equity firm Aurigo Management and person responsiblefor selling ASDA to Wal-Mart) is the perfect person to open the new building of a university which bills itself as ‘committed to avant-garde, radical thinking’.

    But why invite-only? Surely all of us, and others from the local community, should get the opportunity to meet and congratulate Mr Norman on his outstanding achievements and to stand by Goldsmiths management in their attempts to align themselves with our new ConDem government.

    SO, to show Archie a good time we’re going to crash the party, bring banners (to show exactly how you feel about Archie being invited to Goldsmiths), instruments, balloons, party poppers and anything else you can think of to make a lot of noise!

    Meet outside New Academic Building main entrance, behind RHB, at 5pm so we can stop Archie and the other guests from getting into NAB to have a champagne-fuelled, right-wing, pro-cuts laugh at the expense of us students and ALL of the most vulnerable people in society.


  2. I hope that those of us intended to go to the Brendan Barber meeting can arrive earlier and join the crowd of partygoers.

    Up the students’ fees, they need the money for events like these….
