January 27, 2006
I remember last years general election, which was accompanied with a series of thoughtful, intelligent entries on Warwick Blogs.
I also remember last years student elections, which caused around 1000 Wacky Madcap Bastards™ to either dress up in funny costumes, invent side-splittingly awful slogans, or otherwise generally devalue an already petty process.
Already this year I've seen an Ali G (full marks for cultural relevance in 2006), but worse still I've seen some joker who Warwick Young Conservatives (ever charitable) have let be their official candidate. He pledges to listen to the students, which apparently hasn't been done this year. As well as listening to "da yoof" (the demographic that the Conservatives wish to target), he pledges to support the government on top up fees and the university on its zero tolerance policy concerning cannabis.
Um, that doesnt sound like listening to the students very much.
