P and G get into Drag

P and G get into Drag

"Aha", we said. "They'll never stand for this". How wrong we were, standing on the anti-male discrimination platform P and G were well to forefront in [unclear: the] election. Whimpering with rage at this irreverent attack on women's rights, [unclear: vir] ginia Adams and Debra Montgomery rush into the fray, saying that they would be very vocal in the defence of women's right — a rather self-evident statement we all thought.

Once the formality of an election was disposed of, we moved onto the lucky last position - that of Accomodation and Welfare delegate. Only one person was required for this position. And what a tussle developed. Tim Rocheford was at his [unclear: stammering] best, and once again Andrew Tees launched himself into the offensive. To everyone's surprise, amazement and admiration, P and G stood for this position, saying they would split the fare for this trip, and it was positively their last offer. "Ha ha" came the derisive yell, and they were sent packing.

So what eventuated was that our President will not be an official delegate to Council - an unprecedented event. It is hard to know where Andrew's support comes from for SRC has never been known to back him up. Where the future will lead only time [unclear: we] tell.

As it happened, the meeting ended here and everyone fled to their lectures. The [unclear: only] sound, after the ambulance left was Simon Wilson humming "I shot the Sheriff"
