Outside the bubble

Last weekend I finally went off campus for the first time since I arrived here. I went to Warwick on Saturday – not to the castle but to a housing estate. I am not one of those really annoying people who is already looking for off campus accomodation that is too far away from campus for convenience anyway, I went with the Tory society campaigning for next year’s local elections (and the rather important issue of saving Warwick hospital). We then went for a pub lunch which was really good. The most annoying thing was that I had to do my analysis assignment when I got back.

Then, on Sunday, I went on the Fees Demo in London. I had to get up rather earlier than I would have otherwise done but it was a good day out. I’m not expecting anything from the government – when have they ever listened to the people (apart from when there is an election next week but I am not going to wait another 3 years to be listened to) – but it was worth going because I had a good time and I do disagree with top-up fees. I also appeared on TV on Sunday lunchtime. If you didn’t see it then you can watch online here.

I’m not going anywhere over the weekend but I will be going to Birmingham on Tuesday next week. That should be quite a good day.

    That’s a shame, I tried to watch it but for some reason it didn’t work, Kerri

  2. I nicked the link location from the Students Union website but you can go to the BBC website and find the Politics Show. Once there click on the West Midlands link and chose watch (but make sure you chose the West Midlands version because I was on the local part of the programme. Hope this helps.
