Matt Strong, National Secretary of the National Organisation of Labour Students (NOLS), has strongly denied rumours that his favourite Labour Club is infact Brum’s own BULS. BULS has long been considered a thorn in the side of NOLS and the claim will surely damage Mr. Strong’s personal credibility with his NOLS colleagues as well as his former club in Manchester – who have expressed severe unhappiness at the rumours.
It is alleged that Mr. Strong confronted Tom Guise, Chair of BULS, in a car-park in Sheffield and told him the news. Reasons given were superficial but nonetheless important, Mr. Strong very much enjoyed BULS’ ability to outlast over 130 Labour Students in the bar the previous night (with Ben Semens, Tom Marley and Guise himself all lasting past 5am), thus winning the strong endorsement from NOLS office.
In a press release from BULS HQ, Guise expressed his keen desire for BULS to continue impressing the national office in such ways at future events. BULS is making preparations to last passed 6am at the next national event to be held in London in December.
Mr. Strong’s lawyers have refused to comment on his behalf and it is thought that Strong has gone into hiding North of the border.
