I was dismayed to read your front-page story "Follow my Labour" (THES, May 5). Not only are issues in the article confused, I am inclined to believe that the text was conveniently put together to fit the headline.
There is indeed crossover between the University of London Union paper Funding a Better Future and some of the options that Labour is looking at. It is also the case that the National Union of Students should not follow the Labour position, but instead that the Labour Party and the Government take on board the views of the student movement.
I have my own politics and I would certainly like to see the NUS take a more progressive position on education funding. However, a review is on in the national union - one which is genuine and objective.
