  1. There's no information on that link about "Reviewing the Smoking Policy".

  2. It's on the agenda, It was also referred to as the 'mystery policy' in the jumbled up e-mail they sent out a few days ago. The reason is that they can't talk about it on the main Union website until the referenda are over.

  3. Ah yes. By signing in to the Union website, visiting Democracy>Council Papers>AGM-UGM>05–06 you can find the order paper for 29/11/05.

  7. Are they mad?

    I couldn't possibly say. For myself I'll be voting against.

  8. I think a "total lift" of bans is a bit of a package motion. If people want different bans applied to diferent circumstances, we could end up voting in parts…

    The results of the secret ballot were about 70 for and about 180 against.

  11. Why was that ridiculous amendment to the otherwise quite reasonable anti-terrorism bill motion that said "condemn the use of the word Islamist" accepted? That's when my support fell off, unfortunately most others didn't realise this amendment or didn't have enough sense to oppose it.

  12. It was accepted because it wasn't against the spirit of the motion and because I thought that it was a worthwhile marker to put down.
