Lithgow's Moderation Prevails

Lithgow's Moderation Prevails

About this time, a great constitutional wrangle arose. Untangling it all, this is what finally happened:

The motion of no confidence was put and, after a division, lost. Robert Lithgow had urged us to vote against it, so he could propose another motion which said:
a)the Exec be strongly censured.
b)a full report on the situation be accepted by SRC before the position of office secretary is downgraded.
c)a 3-person committee be formed to draw up a bill of rights for Association employees.

This was voted on, and passed 104-1 2.

So now it's over. Our principles and ideals are back on their feet again, even if their legs are shaky, and we can get back to the business of the year with everyone relatively happy.
