HM Loyal Opposition on campus

The review of Universities Australia relations with government (CMM Friday) suggests the lobby extends advocacy, “to include matters of broader national significance”

Which sounds like an excellent way to annoy ministers, whichever party is in power.

And assumptions that all would be well if UA sucked up to the coalition ignore that when Christopher Pyne proposed deregulating student fees, UA (with two or three VCs opposed) was on-side – which manifestly made the lobby no lasting friends in the coalition.
