Two motions have been tabled to censure Vice-Chancellor Jan Thomas

Some on Massey University's board are moving against its Vice-Chancellor, after she stopped Don Brash from speaking at the Palmerston North campus.

Two motions have been tabled to censure Vice-Chancellor Jan Thomas, after emails were revealed showing she grappled with Brash's speaking engagement before cancelling the event over security concerns.

Massey University professor Peter Lineham told Mike Hosking that a lot of staff are uneasy about the decision.

" I think it is a big, big blunder, this has put the university in a very bad light."
