Rumours were circulating Guild circles last night that this year’s famous Refreshers Fair will not go as smoothly as planned, after rumours that members of Conservative Future on campus were looking to hijack the now famous speed dating event.
A source close to a senior Conservative Future member has told BULSInside (the new investigative journal of BULS) that Conservative Future members are planning a coup at the Speed Dating Society, with a view to having the event moved to a local old peoples’ home this year.
The revelations come amid a number of blog posts appearing on the Conservative Future blog, appearing to worship various octogenarians to a degree that a number of Guild members have called “just plain sick.” In a bizarre twist, the CF source allegedly stated “there seems to be no stopping the idea now, it’s just gained that critical momentum. They were even talking about trying to get Cilla Black in to host it, but weren’t sure if they could get their speaker approval form in on time.” Cilla (pictured) is a prominent Tory supporter.
BULSInside were unable to contact any members of the CF committee last night, and Cilla’s office was unable to comment. A senior BULS member said “we have nothing against CF members worshipping whoever they please in their own time. Indeed, a number of excellent politicians remain very active well into their eighties and some are deserving of praise. These allegations do appear to put a more sinister spin on what we already saw as a developing problem within CF, however.”
