EUSA spending £300,000 a year enforcing Blurred Lines ban

Edinburgh University Student Association is spending around £300,000 a year enforcing the ban on Robin Thicke’s controversial song “Blurred Lines”.

The shocking new figures came to light in a recent student council meeting where it was revealed that the student union expects a £300,000 deficit by the end of the year.

Speaking in an interview with Flipside a EUSA council member explained how the vast majority of the overspending was due to the many hidden costs involved in banning the song.

“When we first banned Blurred Lines we didn’t think it through that well, but the hidden costs have been extreme. Who would have known that the DJs would demand £75,000 compensation for the lack of club atmosphere because of the song’s absence? And who would have expected that the extra security hired to pacify the student venues would cost almost £200,000?”

When asked further about the nature of the new security officers, EUSA were quick to provide assurance that although they had not seen any extra staff yet they were confident that the G4S security company would deliver eventually.

Further investigation also revealed that the loss of revenue to Potterow and Teviot was extreme. Some sources estimated that EUSA’s predicted £45,000 loss for 2013/14 was almost entirely due to no one turning up at the Union building because they couldn’t enjoy popular music.

As a result it was announced that the union would once again be raising the price of Teviot sandwiches to £7.
