Daily Express: UK’s student shame: National Union of Students teams up with ISIS killer apologists CAGE

The National Union of Students (NUS)as agreed to oppose the counter-terrorism bill with the help of Cage, the group which supported Emwazi before he joined the Islamic State.

At its annual conference last week delegates passed a motion so it could save time, which raised fears of radicalisation at British universities.

Bizarrely, the decision is clearly so divisive and controversial that even Union president Toni Pearce, has said she will not work with Cage. 

The NUS motion said the union would 'publicly oppose the Counter Terrorism and Security Act, for the NUS President to issue a public statement condemning the PREVENT Strategy and the Government's Counter-Terrorism and Security Act, and alongside civil liberties groups including CAGE, lobby the government to repeal it immediately'.

The motion was defended by Union president Toni Pearce, who said she personally would not work with Cage.
