Administrators have concocted a 186-page charge sheet (which is secret) to get rid of him.

    Universities need to be razed to the ground and rebuilt to be focussed on old fashioned things like education, not $ from overseas students.
    Anyone who can’t tell the difference should not be on a professor’s generous salary, let alone the obscene salaries and bonuses of the VCs and their administrative armies.

    University of Queensland doesn’t want anymore taxpayer funding?

    So the mob who were “scared” the unit being set up about “Western Culture” (Ramsey center?) is instead kowtowing to Chinese “Confucius center” pressure.

    They reserved the right to choose the hand they licked to show their servitude.
    Useless wormtongues.

    They say that in order to find out who really runs your life, figure out who you can’t criticise. It’s pretty easy to see who runs our Universities. 🙂

    stackja obviously they are getting enough from the CCP and no longer need taxpayer funding.

    The reason this is happening is our universities’ dependence on China, but ultimately it’s immigration. Universities have become visa mills, awarding degrees to mostly illiterate international students who then become permanent residents. That’s their business model. So mass immigration is destroying free speech (as well as wages, productivity, living space and so on).

    CCP trade surplus dollars at work

    You can’t import so many PRC citizens without importing their values on free speech and democracy. Ultimately you get influenced and corrupted by it.

    (The last line of the linked article) “The University received $679 million from international student tuition fees in 2019.”
    Follow the money.
    Furthermore, the dominance of communist/socialist ideological preferences in universities is so complete that it must make them dazed, confused and bewildered to conceive that someone might actually oppose the CCP and its global pretensions. “If there’s one heretic, there may be others – surgery is required immediately!” is the probable subtext.

    It’s going to be a long process to wean universities ( read administrators on six figure salaries) off Ch1nk cash as part of unwinding the population ponzi.

  11. They must be getting legal advice from Victoristan.

    Universities have been a heavily publicy subsidised, billion dollar profit p.a. yet tax free sector for years.

    And all the while pretending to be paragons of enlightenment and academic disinterest.

    To borrow a phrase from La Rochefoucauld:

    Hypocrisy is the tribute vice-chancellors pay to virtue.

  13. H B Bear

    Communists in universities?

    Nooooooooooooooooo. Tell me it isn’t true.

    OK I did ask about this guy the other day – whether this was another anti-free speech move by UQ or whether they were just trying to get rid of a swampy. I did some poking around and this swampy also tried to deplatform some crew associated with the IPA. Albrechtsen in February:

    Last month, Gen Lib, as we call it, applied to have a stall at Market Week, an extended part of O Week at Queensland University of Technology, which runs in late February. By email in late January, Alisha Pritchard from QUT’s student guild declined Gen Lib’s application, telling it the committee had “decided that your brand does not align with our values”.

    In the days that followed, Drew Pavlou, a student who sits on the University of Queensland’s senate, started a petition to ban Gen Lib from UQ’s market day activities too. Pavlou describes himself as a human rights campaigner. He has tweeted a video of himself supporting Hong Kong protesters at UQ. Alas, his lack of support for intellectual freedom at home creates a serious credibility problem for him. In other social media posts Pavlou has called for crushing dissent, burning books and said Gen Lib members “need to be bullied into submission.”

    In other words its free speech for me but not for thee. He claimed to be a friend of the young guy Wilson who suicided after his drag queen protest. But Wilson Gavin was a young Lib and this guy doesn’t strike me as a fan.
    In fact the more I poke around, it strikes me that Pavlou is just addicted to activism. He’s addicted to the attention. It’s a bit of an adrenalin hit for him. If UQ turned around and banned all Chinese nationals, my bet is that he would be campaigning for the CCP.
    That doesn’t make UQ innocent here – they certainly have form – but I suspect that Pavlou is no angel and that there is more to this story.

    If this person has done what I think he may have done – he is in trouble.

    Thanks WDYSIA. Useful context.

    Ridd MK2, and due to the virus, no chinese students coming to keep them in the black.

    Spit it out man.

    ‘If this person has done what I think he may have done – he is in trouble.’

    Yes, BIG trouble. No doubt a heinous thought crime, criticising and offending our Chinese Paymasters and/or “University” administration (but I repeat myself).

  20. Terry

    Australian Universities should not be directly taxpayer-funded, at all.

    If we, as a society, decide that tertiary education should be subsidised (partially or wholly) then that subsidy should be delivered directly to the student, as should secondary and primary education (indirect funding).

    There also needs to be external auditing of “pass requirements”. Universities “fudging” results in deference to large sums of foreign money should be prosecuted for fraud and deregistered.

    At the moment all the information we have is hes to be tried by a star chamber on secret charges.

    He might be a complete cock, or he might be right, the chances of anybody not involved finding out are effectively zero at the moment.
    I reserve the right to paint the star chamber/secret charges with utter disgust and a railroading of an irritant on behalf of a lucrative little market sector with way more political clout than they should have.

    As I said in a recent recalibration wish list – dot point No.8:

    8. Expose the University of Qld as being captured by the Chinese Communist Party, since it has a Confucius Centre on campus, harasses supporters of Hong Kong independence, and is egged on by the Chinese Consul General Xu Jie, who the Vice chancellor appointed as an Adjunct Professor at U of Q.

  23. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    “The University received $679 million from international student tuition fees in 2019.”

    Well, that’s sure to pay for a whole bunch of “objective thought and analysis” on this “controversial” issue.

    Very cryptic Doomlord. Very cryptic. Anyway you can tell me. I certainly won’t tell everyone. Just the people on here.

    I wonder if Mark Dreyfus QC MP will be conferring with the Lucy Atkinson from the Commonwealth Department of the Attorney General whether to write to the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Queensland requesting that he register as an agent of foreign influence.
