I'm sat at the Hustings meeting for the Union elections.

And oh god it's boring…

There's the usual array of idiot candidates, combined with the fact that we're essentially sat in a corridor. And we can't hear them because the sound is rubbish.

And why are there only four less-than-visible Sabbs here?

Questions, questions, but I'm not getting any good answers.

  1. When I wandered through with Laura earlier it sounded appalling – witness once again to why non sound engineers should not run sound, especially when it's that bad.

    Hope it gets more interesting.

    I'm just glad I could escape early.

  3. I don't know about all the sabbs but I think Kat Stark is off sick today.

    my guess is what with it being in the day they have sabb job things to do, I know Doug had various meetings in the day.

    It was ridiculously boring, if I hear anything more about the smoking ban I think I'll scream. Tory was funny though – ah bless!

    Out of interest, I counted a little over 40 people in the marketplace (most of whom were other candidates anyway). Out of a student body of approx 15,000, this constituted 0.26%. Eek

    It's the classic case of gimmicks over substance – people are already fed up of the interruptions to daily life – by this point the idea that people might actually have viable policies (which they most probably do) has sunk beneath the miriad of posters and chalk

    Zain had a meeting and turned up later. Doug was at a meeting and Kat was off sick. The rest of us I think were there for the whole thing.

    We've tried to get people involved in Hustings a bit more this year by having them in the Market Place. I reckoned that there were about 60–70 at the busiest time, including the balcony.

    Could do better but it was better than last year.
