So, I've decided to get a blog…


My name is AJ Brown, I am 20 years old and a third year Politics student at Warwick Uni. My main interest at Warwick is Union Democracy, and I am starting this blog so that I can try and provide an interesting "behind-the-scenes" view of Union Democracy.

My roles in the Union:

  • Chair of Union Council
  • Chair of Steering Committee
  • Chair of the Westwood Working Group
  • Campaigns Committee Secretary
  • Welfare Committee Member
  • NUS National Conference Delegate

As you can see, I'm very involved! However, I try really hard not to become a Union "hack" (negative term for a Union insider who becomes cut-off from reality) and try and speak to as many people as possible about the Union. Again and again I hear two main things:

1) Drinks prices are too high
2) The Union doesn't represent me

These are the two biggest problems facing Warwick SU at the moment. Our commercial services are good, but prices are too high and our profit-margin is wafer-thin. Union democracy is good (compared to most Student Unions) but could be much, much better.

Over the next weeks and months, I hope to use this blog to assess where we are as a Union, and how we can move forward. If you ever have questions or comments then please post on this site or e-mail me:

I promise to get back to you ASAP (usually within 24 hours) and hope I can help :)
