Southampton Uni right-wing websites launched

5th Jan 2011 - Andrew Howe

Logos of the new websitesTwo new Soton Uni-related websites have been launched recently. The self-labeled 'student tabloid' Soton Tab and the Wessex Mash are both Wessex Scene website competitors. Both sites feature right wing, pro-fees views, with some articles launching personal attacks on other students. While the Wessex Mash is a standard Wordpress blog, the Soton Tab shows a more planned design, and appears to have time and money being invested in it. The question becomes, where is this input coming from?

The legitimacy, and perhaps even legality, of these sites, and the 'news' they post, will likely be questioned by SUSU in the near future.
