NUS still united 2

April 2, 2004

Your editorial takes the decline in support for student union bars as a simple fact rather than looking at a social problem.

If it is really true that students are drinking less, not only will this cause unemployment among temperance advocates, it also raises the truly appalling spectre of a generation of sober-minded students who attend all their lectures and complete essays on time.

Fortunately, I think that there is a more palatable explanation. Student union bars are in decline because Wetherspoons is much cheaper.
