Young Labour gets nasty

Oh the joys of student politics.  Labour party hack, Rory McCourt is going negative and nasty as he struggles to get support for the VUWSA Presidency.

The tipline has obtained an email that Rory McCourt sent out to Young Labour members last week and it comes as he ramps up an increasingly angry and negative smear campaign.

In the email, McCourt pleads with Young Labour to support his agenda to “keep VUWSA red.” This is surprising as the union has been a continual screw-up under Labour leadership.  A more appropriate plea would be “get VUWSA in the black’.

Rory’s negative tactics just reeks of desperation – clearly he is getting tips from the mastermind of the nasty party, Trevor Mallard.

McCourt’s antics are dumb, sad and downright nasty. Just shows all the students at Victoria exactly why they need to get rid of this tosser, and put someone else in who can change this toxic culture.
