Aaron Porter resigns as NUS leader

Aaron Porter, remember him? has resigned as leader of the National Union of Students.  Here's The Guardian:
The president of the National Union of Students, Aaron Porter, is to stand down amid fierce criticism that he did not fight hard enough to prevent university tuition fees from almost trebling.
The 26-year-old, who has led a high-profile campaign against higher fees and education cuts since he took the post in June, said the union needed a "fresh start".
A source at the NUS said Porter was facing too much personal abuse from students angry that the union had not taken a harder stance against fees and cuts.
Personal abuse? That's funny because he had claimed that it was racial, nay more, antisemitic abuse that got to him.
