Tyson Holloway-Clarke15 December 2015
This year’s UMSU elections were hotly contested but nothing was closer than the races for the general secretariat and the welfare office. With fewer than a dozen votes separating each ballot (amongst thousands of total votes), this election was certifiably, undeniably, toight. The returning officers of Above Quota Elections have declared the welfare office has been won by More! and the general secretariat by Stand Up!. But Elinor Mills, the candidate More! endorsed for general secretary, has lodged an appeal with the electoral tribunal against the returning officers. Now, the electoral tribunal may issue a declaration that a new election be conducted.
If the events of the last week had taken place months ago with plenty of time before the SGM, I think amendments would have been made and the changes passed. The public back and forth between UMSU and the GSA just goes to show that there were so many unanswered questions, issues, and work yet to be done.
As a huge fan of the skull-donning vigilante, I was very excited about the inclusion of the Punisher in this season and can comfortably say my expectations were surpassed.
With unparalleled efficiency, depth and a beckoning coldness and cruelty, Claire and Frank have never been more compelling.
Kan-yay or Kan-nay? Tyson Holloway-Clarke and Rose Doole take on the ultimate debate: Is Kanye West a genius or a douchebag?
Ultimately the NUS is failing to live up to what it could be and is pissing away whatever mandate it has left.
