    I know it was published in The Sun and isn't 100% accurate according to the comments below from the Students Union but there is a basis of truth in it

    This has been going on for ages. There is footage of students doing jazz hands or clicking their fingers as an alternative to clapping. It started in American universities.

    What will happen when these idiots are in the real world and, scarier still, possibly running it?

    Without wishing to get political, there's a danger that our next prime minister will be a lifelong supporter of such nonsense.
    The real danger is that a culture has been created whereby anybody speaking out against this idealism automatically becomes some kind of fascist

    Where do you draw the line on this inclusivity bullshit?

    Suppose I'd like to be an Olympic marathon gold medal holder, should I be prevented from doing so just because I'm unfit and lazy?
    Maybe I'd like to be a cardiac surgeon, am I being discriminated against because I don't have a medical degree?

    Indeed, Im inclined to agree, obviously to a point. Im all for inclusion, but it shouldnt have to be at everyone elses exclusion.
