Derek ‘Monorail’ Mallinson outclassed and outshone his presidential competitors yesterday in the Union President’s debate.
Derek was able to rise above his opponents with a combination of his typical killer humour and intellect. A handful of his best moments include…..
South America managed to make money selling weapons to Iran, and that’s how they managed to make money. Like them, we have to find ways too.”
I am going to shut down the union”
Derek points to the KitKat on his desk.
If we were to ban Nestle, then I wouldn’t be sponsored”
I have proposed that all FairTrade products should be banned from the SUSU shop.”
Derek proposes that introducing a quiz about the students union as an entry requirement to SUSU buildings would increase student involvement with SUSU.
I propose there is a quiz for members of the Students’ Union, and they can’t enter it until they pass the quiz”
Overall the debate was unsuccessful with a poor attendance and a slow, tedious format, the event was a dull question and answer session rather than a debate.
There were however a few glimmers of debate with Charlie Torrible and Sam Ling questioning the feasibility of Aaron Bali’s policies on solar panels, council tax automation and allotments.
Voting is now officially open and at The Tab we hope you take part and make your opinions heard.
