So on the non-GM food related aspects of the AGM (see previous post), it was a solid performance. I did like the new initiatives from steering and co. with regards to drinks and biscuits, and sprinkling doses of elections and (honorary) life membership awards.

And on that particular note I am very touched to have been awarded life membership of our SU. It rather means a lot to me – a hearty thanks guys.

The radio mic rather successfully failed on me, but what annoyed me more was the issue raised by a member of Ocean Sciences known to me regarding 1) the minutes of last council and 2) proposing essentially to sue the universtiy. Anything other than what he expected to hear was apparently wrong. I appreciate the hard time Ocean Sciences students are having, yet it is still apparent the issues of this individual are based (by no means solely) on a dislike for the current executive and the NUS Referendum. If only he would work with and not against those that can make a difference.

On a lighter note, I suggest that to continue the game show theme (a.k.a. Carolan), we employ the use of buzzers for voting and a boom mic for speed. Well steering must have a reasonably healthy budget, surely?
