Saul and Anna are looking matchy-matchy in their official stripes!
I'm so excited! I'm sitting next to Charlie Rowley and Holly Treadwell who also cannot contain their excitement. Shame our view of the stage is ruined by Jim's hair!
Other Dave has extremely preened looking locks...
Not just "had" - "gave himself" a haircut ;) And the Pro-Returning Officer who entered late was * from the NUS not * from YUSU. * was already here :)*Edited by moderator: removed YUSU and NUS staff names
some joke candidates should be weeded out before the process begins.
"some joke candidates should be weeded out before the process begins."great idea!Moderated
These two blokes are a joke. Disgraceful
Peter and Mark are awful. Not in any way funny. So embarrassing.
can we vote of no confidence their candidacy please?
Oh please don't ask those twots any more questions.
I see the only two candidates not husting tonight who have bothered to show up are Nick Scarlett and Chris Etheridge.....
Thank god we don't have to hear them again. I hope the two girls realise they'll win cos they're good and bot cos the two blokes are idiots
There are candidate complaints forms available from * or from the YUSU building. I believe that "student welfare" is accepted as a reason for disqualification, if anyone's interested.*Edited by moderator: YUSU member of stafff
What absolute idiots! Peter and Mark should be ashamed.Moderated
Absolutely shocking. I'll be filling out a complaint form.
Oli - where are you in the audience?
He's on the penultimate row from the very top :P
To your left bruv. With the Strongbow cans.
Aren't YSTV looking fly tonight!
Should Peter Campbell really be on chatroulette.com during the hustings?Not impressed....
I can't see past Jim Bulley's hair. Can someone please cut it during the interval?
I notice the bigots Peter and Mark have left. Good riddance.
I waved at you Oli, but you didn't see me. We have cans of export....
Those 2 idiots will be single for a very very long time!
WE LOVE LUKE AND SUZY! YEAH!!!!!!111!!11?11LUKE IS WEARING A DASHING TOP, STRIPY, NICE, ROLLED UP AT THE SLEEVES. SUZY IS WEARING A TASTEFUL TOP, NICE HAIR AND GOOD SHOES.VOTE SUZY AND LUKE!!111!12!!!?!?1//1
What's the running order for the rest of the night?
I'm available to hire for birthday parties, barmitzfahs and any other family events.Phone number 0800-I-MAKE-U-ROFLFlynny
The hair stays. There's plenty of space in front if you want to sit on the floor
is the running order not on the blackboard? i see something there.....
I want to know more about these varied positions you were talking about! OI OI!!Vote Mandi Madavo and Winnie 'Balamory' Amoaku.
I LOVE JIM'S HAIR! HE LOOKS LIKE THAT LLAMA FROM THE FACEBOOK GROUP!!
Can I perch in your hair for a better view please Jim?
The correct, traditional YUSU hustings question was:Would you rather eat a live badger, or have Jack Russell Terriers for feet?
YSTV fallen asleep?
Surely it's feathers for fingers or jack russells for feet?
What?! Now David Levene has sat infront of me and I can see f*** all.I'm going home.
I thought it was 'Would you rather have your non-writing hand removed or eat a live badger'?
I'm sad to see Mr Rose not wearing one of our football shirt tops tonight.
Why has Jason Rose added me on facebook when I've never met him?
I'm Duncan Banner-tyne from Dragons Den, expert on health gyms and banners.I would just like to point out that Nouse's banner is bigger than YSTV's banner. For that reason, I would like to invest.For YSTV, i'm not interested. I'm out.
The badger question was updated in light of the recent financial crisis.
Is the Nouse team drinking Frosty Jacks from a bottle on the left of the room?
Why does that girl from coach trip keep on whooping from the back row? I'll give her a red card!Moderated
Yes it's true. Chris young is still sitting next to me. I don't like that boy, he just follows me around and moans non-stop about what 'grinds his gears' tonight he just won't stop going on about jims hair!!
@Duncan Banner-tyneIt's OK, Theo Paphitis has already offered us a small fortune for a very small share in our student TV station. But good luck with Nouse.In other news, YUM is kicking arse tonight.
Amen to that!(The Mika question)
Where is Grace this evening? Can you see her? No. I'm taking her to Iraq with me. RAH RAH
elanin was in my seminar and did just messed around on facebook when she even showed up.
My first album went platinum 5 times over! That's 5,000,000 sales!YSTV can shove it!
Call those questions? They are BORING! Come on. Come on!
Is Matt Bailey the love child of Matt Burton and Sam Bailey?!
Can't Leyland run again?! She'll be missed so much at YUSU! Stay Charlie! Stay Charlie!
Oi, Charlotte, is this a conspiracy?!
YSTV banner wins!
YES!!!Our banner plan worked!! HAHAH! Serves you right Nouse, you posho broadsheet!Long live the tabloid! LONG LIVE VISION!P.s we win more awards than you do!
YSTV rules alone!
I would just like to say I'm watching YSTV's live stream and I'm loving it.
Like Moira, I am also watching YSTV's live broadcast and I'm loving it. Awwoooga!
Board listening to all this? Watch YSTV's entry to the student TV awards instead. You get to see the physics building explode!!http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=335545386330
Surely hidden course costs are hidden?! How do you know what they are?! THEY ARE HIDDEN!
Like my good friends Moira and Trevor, I am loving YSTV's live broadcast!
to the ac affairs candidates: nouse or vision?
Charlotte Hogarth-Jones is hot!
The race for Academic Officer is all academic anyway.
URY or YSTV?
I usually go with the what banner they have and whether or not they can keep it up. Wahey!
im tho happy nouthe are doing thith live broadcatht. p.s. jathon rothe ruleth
Lolz @ Dan Taylor's comment. Unfortunately, no one else reading this really knows who Grace is anymore. Or who you are. Or me.But lolz.
Ah never mind.... NUS officer can get away with that...! Worth asking other candidates that though? PRESIDENTS!Comment edited by moderator: NUS staff name
Save the preferred media society questions for the presidential candidates - they should have interesting answers!
20:48 - Will this answer lead to some media bias?!?
Well, Ben has lost my vote with his preference of Vision. It's your chance to claim it Jason Rose...say the right thing.
Chris' phone has ran out of battery he wants me to apologise on his behalf for following me around xx
To make up for 'If it's not too late...', presidential candidate question in advance: URY or YSTV?
Nouse looks pretty!!! Yeah we do!
I'd go URY, listening in. Although YSTV are pretty hot tonight too...
YSTV Banner FTW!
Nice balanced audience to do Nouse/ Vision voting - at a Nouse event!! Brilliant. Face it guys, you've lost the edge on Vision. For the last year they've been way better than you.
I wish I was that kettle chip
Bulley's hair is in the TV shot.
I am getting massively drunk on Tiger beer and pringles! I love hustings, yeah!
YSTV'll need to make sure people know that Pete's talking at actual speed, then.
Is Peter trying to be me? Seriously?! He can't rap that well...
Christ Peter! Take a breath!
I like talking really fast
marry me peter?
PWM loves Nightline. Therefore we love PWM.
Of course he's dancing, that's all he's known for isn't it?
Fancy having a tanning session with me later, Peter?Laura, if you want some cut-price election tips, just drop me an email.
Let's watch YSTV's student TV award entry during the break before the presidential candidates - http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=335545386330
Woo go Peter!! He knows exactly what he's talking about! He's also far too modest... He's been involved on many levels to help with student welfare issues and been successful throughout. Laura has empty promises and not much of a clue... Bye bye bear, just go home.
Oliver Hutchings has been to the toilet a good 5 times now. I like a guy who uses his bum!
Peter doesn't need any gimmicks or to copy shit policies from shit candidates... He can also TALK.
Grace was great. <3 to Nouse. Shame that you only have one person's answer for some questions and Charlotte Hogarth-Jones seems to be getting pretty hyper/excited!Also I forgot to say that next year I'm getting married. Oops.
Freedem of the Press - extremly important. No kidding.
At least one of the candidates knows what they're talking about...
Why do all Laura's clothes have ears attached? Fashion statement or campaign policy??
Don't worry, if young Oliver takes one of me every hour, he'll do just fine.
Finally, Nightline get the recognition they deserve.
Are the camera men actually doing anything? They are just standing and looking at the cameras. Let's have some extreme shots, guys!
He is so good that he can make the lights go off! Imagine what he could do if elected...
CHECK MA BOARD! Brrrrrrrraaaaaaap.
What about Documentary V instead of Porno V? I'm going as a fossil from Cornwall.
I'm going to strap a rocket to my back so I can keep up with Peter's answers. Then I'm going to drop an anvil on his head. Jokes.
I once shagged a fossil from Cornwall, but Charles didn't mind about it.
It's not our job to make this evening any more exciting- if you're bored blame the candidates!
Questions are shit.A little less conversation, a little more action please.
Since these will be going online per candidate, the shots need to be sensible. The camera ops could put the cameras into night mode when the lights go off though - that would make the edited videos a bit more interesting!
Don't worry about quoting Peter exactly, just "Peter talked fast, he was full of amazing ideas and knowledge. Vote Peter!" will do nicely.
FYI, we're the best society on campus. We actually spank other ones, such as, film making. They have what, like, 10 members?
Question for candidates:We've heard about your own strengths but what are the strengths and weaknesses of your opponent?
I read that as "we actually spank one another" and then had to re-read it. Definitely a contrast of candidates here, though!
p.s. as we all know, welfare is about pizza, what's your favourite take away in york?
De der de der de... CHIHUAHUA!!
yaaaaaaaay! Ben! (will you marry me too?)
'Laura wants to be a bear'This sounds like it's continuing from the YSTV station meeting opening question on Monday!
First video from tonight online already!http://ystv.york.ac.uk/watch/Election-Night/2010/Hustings-2010/Campaigns-Officer/Luke-David-Sandford-and-Suzy-Dodd/
Peter has already won the election.
"How would I ensure students are safe in town"I'd arm them. Free guns for all.
Time to watch YSTV's student TV award entry during the break before the presidential candidates - http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=335545386330
If only he liked me. If only.Moderated
Laura has no chance of winning after that...
Time to fix the Nouse banner?
NOUSE!!!!A LOT ARE TWO SEPARATE WORDS!Shame on you.
i cannot wait for this. David Hansen 2010
Got to be Ollie! No competition.
PRESIDENTS: Nouse or Vision?!
everytime i've seen Tim he's always wearing that shirt. Does he own any more?
"Tim says he is the first president in 8 years to involve and consult students..."If Tim had actually bothered to get involved in student politics prior to the last Presidential campaign, he would know that comment is utter bollocks.
David Levene wants to take a page of Vision and Nouse every edition. Boo! He shouldn't have said that. That'll lose him a lot of votes.
Bushby was fond of the 'I know nothing about YUSU so I can see the bigger picture' slant. Worked for him.
Who is this Freckleton guy anyway?
'overhaul the media charter' - isn't that the YUM Chair's job?
Costcutter and Your:Shop closes at 9.00pm... would you support a 10.00pm closing so we can buy more strongbow?
I'm pretty sure a few Presidential candidates have plaigerised from the West Wing...."vote for the candidate who shares your ideals, your hopes, your dreams...."
Good to see more joke candidates running this year in the form of Tim, David, Roberto, Freckleton and Hutchinson!
Roberto Powell was very impressive
When I was called Paul, no one visited my Italian Bistro.But then I added an O at the end of my name, and bob's your uncle, Paulo's Italian Restaurant was the busiest place in the high street.If it worked for me, it'll work for Roberto Powell.
Like the Property comparison website idea.
Nice to see Dave copied my hair do!
That Dave bloke might just win this...
keep it cool?Tim is deffo keeping it gay with that shirt!
Is David Levene Gay?
I thought Robert Powell was the joke candidate??!? Maybe that's why he doesn't like hansen?
Well the sabbs just end up in the local Commet after their term anyways
David Hansen definitely sounds like a politician. Reminds me of the 'Yes Minister' episode with the mixing up of the two speaches which had the same generic opening to answer any question!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIKJgNQk6i4
Hi,I'm the Wella Representative for the north of England and I'd just like to say I've spotted a lot of contenders for this year's pretigious 'Hair Do 2010' award.David Levene's barnet looks like it might be playing host to a few rare species of bird; Sam Houlders has a fabulous fro going on, David has a certain slicked back sexiness, but the ultimate winner must be Jim Bulley: just look at his bush!
It's 118 118 here! Ollie, if you loose this election, please feel free to get in touch with us.
Woah! Not just go home and watch TV and have a nap... go home and sleep on the doctor's orders and also watch the Debate online! And thanks to Ben for saying that I'm better than I came across :) Illness not so good at showing what you're like! :P
@Annon: I take exception to that. Sabbs have gone on to do great things. Like sell 42" plasmas. And 52" plasmas. And blu-ray players.
When I was told I would be in Halifax, I thought I would be in a low cost, budget bank with a that joke Howard Moon representing me.Little did I know that I was actually in a low cost, budget college with that joke Roberto Powell representing me.What are the odds?
Right, so that NUS lady ignored our question before but could you get her to ask this again:Apart from yourself, which candidate do you think is best for the Presidential role in YUSU?Thanks.Oliver, Chris and ChazPS anyone got any more drink? we're dry at the back...
I'm enjoying a Magners purchased from McQs in the break, Oli. It's lovely :-).
QUESTION FOR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES: If you had your wicked way with Jane Grenville, what position would you choose?
Getting Jenny Coyle's words of wisdom down the phone:on Pickard and the other one: "I think it's safe to say that campaign is dead in the wateron some of the less confident speakers: "It was painful to watch, I'm not gonna lie"Moderated
I think freckleton might be getting himself confused with Tim. Mobile phone app - already on it. Groupspaces ambassador - that was Tim too!
Nouse, Nouse, give us a wave.
How long does Ollie spend in the gym to get those guns?
R-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-roberto h-h-h-h-h-has a-a-a-a- s-s-s-s-s-stutter.R-r-r-r-r-ro-o-o-o-o-o-f-f-ff-f-f-f-f--fl-l-l-l-ll-
I'm going to win with my poker face.
Presidents... noooouse or vision???????
Stop talking about that Blah Blah Blah!
Question for the Presidents:Now the threat of the Mysterons has passed, what would you do to prevent YUSU coming under extra-terrestrial attack in the future?
Nouse team!Give us a wave! Give us a wave! Give us a wave!Come on Nouse! Give us a wave!
Would candidates rather have one testicle or three?
Ollie will you be my Rude boy?Love Chris and Rhianna
love the shirt tim. Just nd 2 fil it out like the nus woman
Can we not have this NUS woman next year? She's terrible....
173 comments on this?! Brilliant!!! Well done Nouse guys! Well done!
Thanks Ollie,You're lovely too. Although frankly we didn't really need to hear that story about your hospital visit.
Not if you post a reply that makes it 174. Undermined!
- charlie was throwing pain killers at him because he was in pain! It was a throw of affection.
NOUSE this is ystv....we have your banner held captive...be warned......
I thought Powell was surprisingly impressive. Talked a lot of sense and seemed genuinely passionate. Interesting stuff!
I want to autotune Peter's speech.
Really enjoyed the coverage. Watched the first half from the hall and the rest in the Goodricke JCR live.Roll on tomorrow night!
@ Hasssan MeerrSorry! With great hair comes great responsibility@ Martin WilliamsI know Nouse and Vision are really really pushed for space some editions, and obviously I'm not going to demand space. But as I said, there's room for compromise, and I'm sure something can be worked out@ AnnonWanna find out?
Did you break a record on number of comments? I don't know, blog post to follow...
Massive lol at the newspaper floor vote in Nouse's favour- as if your standard alcohol swilling, drug boshing, badly nourished, course cruising, basely moraled student has turned up to hustings tonight... Nouse is a collaboration between people taking student life and themselves farrr too seriously, the kind of people who will inevitably be your boss one day. With that in mind, if you don't dislike Nouse now, give it 5 years...
Almost all Hustings videos for today are now online athttp://www.nouse.co.uk/elections/candidates/ orhttp://ystv.york.ac.uk/watch/Election-Night/2010/Hustings-2010/President candidate videos should be on soon.Edit: Pres videos now online!
@dan walker; is that "hes east goodricke" or what is now the james college jcr?
will there be video footage put up of the questions asked too? i want to rewatch the hilarious crash and burn of Mark Prickard and Peter Saul-less!
I think we all learnt something tonight, Charlotte and Janey are fucking heroines.
@Question for YSTVWe're working on it!
so true Hutchings! whoop!
Laura Connor is hot
As is CHJ
freckletons speech was remarkably similar to langrish's of last year
Just watched the videos for the president and personal ties aside it is clear Tim and Roberto made the best speeches. Don't really see how that can be debated
I personally disagree - Dave had the best speech ;-)
@mike "is that "hes east goodricke" or what is now the james college jcr?"That was the Goodricke JCR at Hes East. Put it up on the projector and watched it with a bunch of people.
Good job, YSTV!
When voting for people you need to consider the job they have to perform:You have to choose someone who you can imagine being able to successfully stand up to the University on important issues and be taken seriously (so sadly not Ollie or Elanin then)You need someone who has actually cared about YUSU before they realised they didn't have a job next year. So no Matthew, having nothing to do with YUSU doesn't make you a good candidate it makes you a worse one. A two week handover can't teach you all the issues, you need to already be familiar with them.A point Etheridge made fairly well, though I'm not sure I can bring myself to vote for him. No point in making promises you know you can't keep. *cough*Bretts*cough*
@ "A voice of sense""You have to choose someone who you can imagine being able to successfully stand up to the University on important issues and be taken seriously (so sadly not Ollie or Elanin then)"Ollie has been a college chair and Elanin is a part-time officer. What do you know that the rest of us don't about their ability to be taken seriously by the university, their ability to assess what issues are important and their reasons for running?
"You have to choose someone who you can imagine being able to successfully stand up to the University on important issues and be taken seriously (so sadly not Ollie or Elanin then)"i don't understand this. to me Elanin seemed the most serious about the job out of all the other Academic candidates.
It upsets me that you didn't manage to reach 200.. so here you go Nouse, lucky number 200!
