The 3 main political party societies are going on a bar crawl tonight. This led to a conversation between a few of us in my kitchen last night. Obviously the main aim of tonight’s bar crawl is to have a good time but one of us came up with what I thought was a really interesting idea, even if a little controversial. This idea was whoever drinks the most should form the next government. Who needs elections when you have alcohol deciding the next government? This could be the perfect solution to voter apathy!

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.
