Is this the most ridiculous campaign video kicking about Newcastle this year?

What a banger

With the voting ballots opening on Monday March 2 at 3pm, this candidate wants to show us exactly what he’s made of.

Matthew Right is running for Education Officer, and is keen to show why he’s the right man for the job.

With a history of representational and leadership roles throughout university, Matt has had chance to develop all the right skills to be a Sabbatical Officer.

Matt, whose slogan is #ThePriceIsRight, told The Tab: “I want to push harder than ever to get the value for our £9,000 tuition fees that we deserve.

“We need a drastic increase both in the amount of materials we get given for our courses, and also the amount of feedback from exams.

“Please help me to help you and take a couple of seconds to vote.”

And you can see in his video campaign just how much he wants to push for those reforms (Parental Advisory):

Tim, a third year said: “All things considered, we’re sure he’s going to do a great job.

“If he puts half as much work into it as the video then it should be a great academic year for us all.”

From Freshers Crew 2014 to course rep, Price has always been keen to get involved.

And of course, what campaign would be complete without a baby pic?

If you want to have a read of the serious bit, here you go:


• Return of your exam scripts

• Provide examples of first class and third class exam answers


• More free course materials across courses as an incentive for high attendance

• More library space

• More RECAP


• Lecture content about what employability relates to what you’re learning

• Working with the Careers service to send tailored emails to individual schools regarding further study

• Dates of absence of lecturers available to all

• Increase the support network for students during times of lecturer absence


• An anonymous board on Blackboard to raise issues with course reps

• Raise awareness to course reps in the ways they can improve their school
