“Views that appear to have been expressed by the President-elect of the Students’ Union have been brought to the attention of University leaders. These views are deeply abhorrent and, as we understand, are subject to a further disciplinary inquiry by the Students’ Union.

“Whilst the Students’ Union is a wholly independent organisation, responsible for the election and appointment of its officers, the University will not tolerate behaviour of this kind and will not hesitate to use its own procedures if necessary.”
