Great coverage last night Nouse! Maybe I should of voted for you instead...will keep an eye on here over the course of the evening and may drop in towards the end of the evening to see Student Activities, D&S and York Sport. All look very exciting!Matt
Right, I'm on the way to costcutter for a crate of strongbow.Anyone want anything from the shop? Tommy?
Can you post the order of speakers please?
No worries Oli, we've got an 8 pack already
Oli Lester comes in... late.... but with copious strongbow, so we forgive him!
We're enjoying our beer and food at the back. How about a shout out Nouse??
Anybody want to get takeaway. We're thinking chinese, but we're flexible..
Whose that joker Rob running? *
i played against Sam in college footy today. he was rubbish.
Hey guys. Back in the room enjoying a can of strongbow.One minor complaint, who invited the NUS lady* back to chair? She's as much use as a one legged man in an arse kicking contest.
I'm well up for a chinese. Do you think they'd deliver here? I wonder if they'd wear a Nick Scarlett hat?
My comment got moderated! All I was doing was comparing how much meat you get in one of my bargain buckets compared to a candidate*Yummy!
Naughty naughty Oli.. *
I see the Nouse banner is much better taped tonight. For that reason, I'm in.
Everyone in China loves Nick Scarlett.And Chicken.
Boooo to Lester, big love for Kat, she's doing a cracking job!
Would you rather one big successful event in your tenure, or 6 small successful events?
Question for D&S for later...What do candidates think about other student unions banning the sale of bottled water in union outlets and replacing them with the sale refillable bottles and accessible water fountains? Do they feel Your:Shop and The Courtyard could go ahead with such a plan?
New moderation absolutely sucks. This isn't as much fun as it used to be.Let us be rude dammit!!!!Also - still noone want to take me up on that chinese. We can get something else if you want to.
I am totally beating these two shmucks!Also, was that you looking for the takeaway Jones?
Come to the Willow for your chinese! FREE prawn crackers!
I like the Ents dress sense. The guy in the suit is mixing heroin-chique, pete doherty trappish style with run-down business man look.The other bloke looks like he is on a boat.
Ents reps don't actually know much about ents rules? experienced my arse...
http://www.yusu.org/blog/entry/302?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitterPickard and t'other banned from campaigning for Womens reps for 9 days
Question for RAG if we have time"We know you can rap, but can you dance? Prove it."
Definitely doesn't like the Ent's reps... RON anyone?
Nouse's reporters are sitting right in front of me, so I can now break all my records and comment even before something's published. Win.
That song is copywright. You owe me PS25. Pay me now. Bitch.
RAG officers get my vote!
WOOO GO DAVID!!!!
What's wrong with being a Vegan living in a tree, ey?
Jones/Apcar/Clark/Lee/Ellis-PetersenWe're ready to order. What do you want? - http://www.goldendragontakeaway.co.uk/menu.php - come back and tell me!
Even I don't censor the media as much as the Nouse moderators!
You can have some of our paper hats, Nouse!
Please vote for my brother for E+E! Go David!
Hunger: yeah those look good, cheers!
It's on it's way Capcar!
Hustings + strongbow = lolz
Right. We've hit a problem with the old Chinese order. Hoping the best minds in the Uni might be able to solve it.. forks!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!??!!??!?!?
Worth walking over to physics from Derwent for the Sabb positions when I have Nouse and YSTV?
If you wash them I have 2 forks. I'm charging though...
Eco friendly pub? Sounds like a kitchen nightmare to me!
I heard that the Panda is voting Frecks
Did someone order a take-away?I'm waiting in James and no ones here!
The same panda is just carrying 10 pizzas
What is Malkin wearing?!!? When I try out my fountain pen I always use blotting paper!!
I heard the panda was Luke Brownbridge, apparently he was looking for David Levene to give him a bamboo based beating...
He doesn't have a flying duck's chance! Ber-dum sch!
Hope the student activities candidates have an opinion on YUM and YUM related issues.
i love Chris Young. He's well YUMmy. Why wasn't he given a hustings?! Well done Nick Scarlett for pointing out this travesty.
With my expert insider knowledge, that was the quality gaffa-taping skills of the YSTV crew. We also have discovered Nouse's chargers are taped by YSTV too! I think this idea could run, but what do the other dragons think?
A good start to YUM, tho a little bit of a cop out answer from some of candidates. Not much mention of the media charter. As for YUM hustings - no comment!
It is true. I was the panda. Mint.
Serious Question from the drunks:Rhianna has achieved many great things this year. What would you choose as her best achievement so far?
Some of the candidates are just mentioning things Rhianna has already achieved or is in the process of sorting out! This is well out of order!
Is that the panda panda, Luke?
Nah it was me, I was the panda. I like Wales (but not whales).
I thought the panda was a jerk, personally. Panda jerk!
That's not true, he likes me
All of this Hustings fun is distracting me from the matter at hand. I'm playing shit!
I can't believe they aren't bothering with hustings for the YUM Chair. It's outrageous! I want to hear Chris Young's sultry tones.
Help I'm stuck in a cave! Damn you David Levene! DEATH TO MEN
Q: Why did Luke Malkin turn up to hustings?A: Seriously, why did he bother?
Have we not had a UGM giving no platform to the BNP?
Glad to hear Unsworth is allowing a BNP society!I'll get my form in on monday!
Who is this Malkin fella? There is only one Luke, Luke Brownbridge! MINT
I like to watch the radio too.
Q: Why did David Levene turn up to hustings? A: he was cruising for a bamboo bruising
Is this bamboo, bamboo?
Dear Golden Dragon,Where is our food. We are hungry.Yours,Ollie Hutchings, Sam Daniels, Rhianna Kinchin, Charlotte Hogarth-Jones, Oli Lester, Jim Bulley, Charlie Leyland and Camilla Apcar.
Chris Young: Will you marry me?xxx

21.01 was Unsworth, not Hesselwood.

Thank you for your comment!
Tommy, I need to see the ring first I think. Such a YUMmy person like myself is in high demand afterall.Although I don't think I've got the vote of whoever thinks the position I'm running for shouldn't exist.
Your comment is awaiting moderation..
I'll be back with my panda outfit soon. I'm just listening to the Lord of the Rings soundtrack whilst watching Numbers and eating cheesy pasta. AWOOGA.
Apcar stop talking about food :P I would bring you your cupcake - it looked amazing- but its in your locked room and im in pyjamas so sorry im not bringing you food :P Nice blogging though xxx
Why am I still at university? Oh yeah, because, like Peter Pan, I never want to grow up.
Even the inexhaustible Scarlett supporters are starting to sound a little tired of cheering now...
Nick Scarlett is the biggest legend at York Uni. He is the nicest, most handsome, intelligent student I have ever met and I am proud to say I have known him.Go Scarlett!
Rachel's so competent. It makes me happy.xxx
3 little words: PhD. Without us, you wouldn't have a university education. To summarise: shut up. Boooooom.
How many times has this phrase been used?
The chinese take away driver is in "George College" car park. It should be with us soon.
I am liking the responses to the academic society question.
Tommy, without you we wouldn't have so much more than just an education.We wouldn't have a hero.
Maybe Luke Malkin is born with it, maybe it is maybalene?
Is anyone watching this? Can we put t' normal news on?
My phD is in badgers and drinking. What do you call a PHD student who only has undergraduate friends..?
QUESTION:to the candidates, what question would you ask if you were not standing?yes, nouse, that was serious.
Luke is awesome!
Erm, could I have PS6 for water bill please? MINT.
Do I have my own college now? Nice.
I'm forked off that I can't find a fork on campus. Fork this.
Sam Daniels FTW.
Camilla is typing so fast it's intimidating.
A PhD student with a social life?
Gillette, the best Dan Walker can get!
Chris Etheridge is the most blatant careerist I've ever seen! Was there any feeling in that? No, it was completely unimprovised and read word for word in monotone.
Who's this person who says he's the Goodricke Chair?Comment edited by a moderator
Both Sam and Dan would be competent candidates!
Serious Question:I just saw my good friend and previous halifax college chair David Sharp serving in McQ's. Where do you see yourself in one years time if you don't get this position?
Good shout James, but I think Dan has the edge.
Great speech Peter Campbell... oh, hang on.....
Serious Question Number Two:What is your opinion on Big D and would you safeguard it for the future?Derwent Love XXX
26 people got back alive on Etheridge's much touted walk. Does this mean some didn't make it back?
Erm, the monorail (which everyone laughed at) is an actual University plan.
We all made it back, dont worry Alex.
Dan, you're FIRED!
Is Charlotte H-J single? I think she might be the One...
Dear Chris Etheridge,Please return my personality forthwith.Yours,John Major
The reason the banner is still up is because YSTV hung it!
What do candidates think about other student unions banning the sale of bottled water in union outlets and replacing them with the sale refillable bottles and accessible water fountains? Do they feel Your:Shop and The Courtyard could go ahead with such a plan?
To whomever posted the first blog entry at 21:47:we would like to point out that your banner has not fallen down because WE taped it up.
tom flynn is a hero.lovepeter campbell(not)
There are very few female students running for sabbatical positions, do you have plans to make changes to the election process to increase female participation in running for positions?
There are very few female students running for sabbatical positions, do you have plans to make changes to the election process to increase female participation in running for positions??
Fight to the death? Pa-lease! Rhi would kick his ass! Although Etheridge would most likely lecture her on the dangers of violence whilst she was doing so!!wooooo. go Rhi.
In fairness Mark, Apcar is quite cute too.
Can somebody please clarify. Is it Chris Etheridge or Peter Campbell running? I find it very hard to tell the difference!!
Loving the Derwent love from Dan Walker. He may look like the Wolfman, but his love of Derwent is brilliant!
Sam also shows a lot of love for Derwent. He may look like a bloke in a stripy blue shirt, but his love of Derwent is brilliant!
Hands off Mark, she's mine!
WORD on the 'student development' spiel by Mr. Daniels. He has been well taught.
Chris also says he would never threaten Big D. He may look like *, but his love of Derwent is brilliant!
QUESTION: Who is your political hero?
These comments are all very cliquey.Who really cares about big d. over priced. Z-list acts.
Bruv,Big D raises huge money for charity, year after year. It's brought the likes of Pendulum, Scratch Perverts and Little Chris to York, while raising PS5,000+ for charity each year.It isn't cliquey, it sells over 1,200 tickets to students all over campus.BRAPPP!
And if you don't know enough about Big D, you're clearly not cool enough and part of the in crowd!Oh yeah, and it definitely isn't cliquey!
Matt Burton has size 11 feet.Lewis Bretts has size 10 feet.What size feet do you have and do you think you can fit into the shoes of a Democracy and Services officer?
We're on chat roulette!People are loving the back row gang coverage of the YUSU elections! 2 thumbs up from some bloke on his white leather sofa!
How come none of the D+S candidates have mentioned non-commercial services like the Advice and Support Centre? Do they actually know about them?
We've not had many decent female sabbs?! What nonsense!
@Confused.com the Advice and Support Centre is a welfare service and comes under the Welfare Officers remit
Serious question: Event Income is a significant source of money for YUSU, all you think you should spend more on acts and reduce profits. what will you cut from the budget to pay for this?
question from weird emo guy on chatroulette.com"Who are you and where are you?"
"my own tip is never throw water on a fat fire. It will literraly take your face off"
Yes Charlotte! Alan Partridge requests. Don't get me started. Dan...Dan...Dan....Dan...Dan...Dan...DAN! I love the Partridge.
What is this water joke? If yourShop or the courtyard dont sell bottles, all the vending machines, costcutter and other outlets will. give ur money away to commercial services rather than reinvest in ur own services. well done.
The ASC isn't just a Welfare area. Many areas of YUSU are represented there including Academic Affairs.
I don't know whether it's because I'm drunk, or whether it's because you chaps are drunk, but this evenings' updates seem incoherent.If you suggest otherwise, quite frankly, you'll be picking up your teeth with a broken arm.Don't rub your fanny on me!
Oh look Nouse win the popularity test over Vision again.Although in all honesty I think Vision would prefer to have the greater respect of The Guardian, which incidentally, they do.Inferiority complex much Nouse?
Walker absolutely owned that, especially with the dancing. Actually, both Dan and Sam were strong, can't say the same about Etheridge...
Daniel, why would Vision prefer to have the greater respect of The Guardian? Shouldn't Vision be more bothered about how well it goes down with students at York? If not, it sounds to me like more of an ego trip than a worthwhile student activity.
Videos are up, check the YSTV site or our candidates page:http://ystv.york.ac.uk/watch/Election-Night/2010/Hustings-2010/http://www.nouse.co.uk/elections/candidates/Cheers YSTV!
Best two candidates tonight:Nick ScarlettSam DanielsBy a country mile.
The banner stayed up in P/L/001 because those are the new boards that I got replaced and they're simply amazing! Also kudos to Nouse; didn't have my laptop out so couldn't read it at the time but it was a good blog. Gutted I missed on the opportunity for Chinese by not reading it live! :P
Jason,You did not get those new boards replaced. Prof. Trevor Sheldon did, as part of a PVC T&L strategy. Stop claiming credit for things you DID not accomplish.
Massively disagree with Realist. Dan Walker clearly came out on top of D&S with realistic policies and good experience. Rachel Hesselwood and Luke Malkin wiped the floor with Scarlett, who proposes to change very little about YUSU.
@ExcaliburI do hope your not insinuating that the answers of a handful of sabb candidates at a Nouse event are representative of the student populace. I actually agree with you but there's no way of knowing really unless you conduct a large independent poll. At least with regards to The Guardian its undisputed.
' Dan thinks the catered aspect of York is "very very important". 'Actually I said that the self catering aspect of the uni is important. That's why I said people need to learn how to cook before going out to live in houses they rent. The MAD scheme is there for people to have the CHOICE to pay in advance for meals. It shouldn't be forced on anyone who chooses none catered yet gets landed in catered accommodation because of a lack of choice.Hate to be picky, but my views on this were clear :PReally enjoyed reading back over the coverage from tonight though!Cheers Guys!
Also, a large proportion of lecturers prefer the old ones! - the controls on the new ones are confusing... I see it every day in PL001 & PL002. - A significant proportion of lecture time is spent fiddling with those buttons. Lecturers also complain that the sections of the screens behind the boards (which went up at the same time) are too small.Once again, nouse were NOT the tapers of the banner. I think Banner taping skills are well out of your control.
Daniel, just let it go. There was a floor vote that got a clear win for Nouse on the first night.Not representative? My studenty housemates had no clue Hustings was on and love drinking, yet they prefer Nouse (they are intelligent though).Maybe the audience had a good reason not to vote Vision, such as your non-existent elections coverage? Did you consider that?
@ heh = what debate were you watching?! I'm assuming you didn't actually see it, to make such a ridiculous comment...No changes to YUSU? A summer opportunities fair = BRAND NEW. College RAG Raids = BRAND NEW.Win.
Hesselwood and Malkin supporting each other.... Anything to do with the fact that Nick Scarlett has blown them both out of the water... hmmm.....
Etheridge HELPED organise society balls, it seems that he is omitting that crucial word, as otherwise it makes him look like he did it all by himself
What's that!?!? - http://tiny.cc/fU40q - kinda looks a lot like Chris Etheridge at the forefront of Union policy. Maybe he should take some responsibility for his actions rather than constantly attacking all of his coworkers?
" Walker says we've not had "many decent female Sabbs in"... "Whoa now.... I'm sure I didn't say that!
I concur with Dan, I thought that was a bit dodgy when I read it; I think somebody must have misheard.
