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.

I’m going to be on TV this Sunday. The BBC came today to film 4 of us – Brian Duggan, 2 people who’s names I can’t remember (but both from council), and me – debating top-up fees.
We will be on this coming Sunday’s (29th October) Politics Show on BBC1 in the West Midlands region between 12:30pm and 1pm. Viewers outside of the West Midlands can see the show by going to Sky and choosing the West Midlands region for BBC1 (channel 970-something). To the best of my knowledge, however, people watching outside the region not on Sky will be unable to watch our debate.
