Student Rights appears to have paid to promote its blog attacking the Real Student Rights campaign, which was entitled ‘Setting the Record Straight’, on Facebook.

A student involved in the Real Student Rights campaign – despite, for obvious reasons, not having liked the Student Rights fan page – spotted this advert on Facebook inviting him to read the Huffington Post blog that Raheem Kassam and Rupert Sutton wrote.

Student Rights does not publish accounts or reveal its donors and claims to fundraise independently but it has been known to receive money from the Henry Jackson Society, the right wing think tank of which it is a project.
