Campus was awash with blue t-shirts today and baloons as voting for the referendum kicked off. As the ramblings from Ingrid suggest, the referendum is all very exciting and will determine whether students stand for change or a Union that actually represents students and not a small clique.
Make sure you vote. Without influencing your opinion any further here are all the neccessary facebook groups and pieces of information as well as the link to the voting page!! It’s 24hrs and runs all this week, just make sure you turn out otherwise you’ll be succumbed to harrasment.
The vote yes facebook group
The Vote no facebook group
The random don’t vote facebook group
The Fabian Neuner no-nonsense guide
And to vote you need to go here. Whice is where you can also find the new Guild Constitution or memorandum and articles (catchy title or what?) for those of you who are fortunate enough not to have facebook!
This is an ABSOLUTE three-line whip. Attendance is utterly compulsory!!
And I have been up for god knows how long, doing impossibly ridiculous questions about superconductors for a deadline tomorrow (today, bugger).
It’s just occurred to me it’s going to be a busy week- Super Tuesday is on, er Tuesday (I want to stay up but I have a class test the next morning! This is RUBBISH, it would never happen in the politics department!)
Also all this week the Guild of Students at the University of Birmingham will be waiting nervously for the results of the referendum on the new constitution to roll in- this will prove something of an acid test for student apathy as we battle to reach quoracy of 2800andsomething … what’s that I hear you say, we need one vote every 155 seconds for the next five days straight? Youch…
…We also have the BULS nomination meeting for Labour Studentsy stuff (on Weds from 7-9, gc chambers), and of course on Saturday the First Annual Selly Oak Branch Labour Party Curry Evening to look forward to…
Right, enough blogging, back to my NIS junctions. *sigh*. I think dawn might break soon…
