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!

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.

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?

@Excalibur

I 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.

Reply

Dan Walker Posted on Thursday 4 Mar 2010

' 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 :P


Really 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.

Reply

Ali Clark Posted on Thursday 4 Mar 2010

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?
