Election campaigning for Guild positions swept campus and all student areas imaginable, but after two weeks of bright colours to vulgar for morning lectures, inventive costumes and the standard random names, finally eight sabatical officers and other Guild positions were appointed.
Well done to all those that took part and congratulations to those that won.
For the first time in more years than I have knowledge of, the Guild shall be headed up by a Conservative Student, Mark Harrop.
Mark served on BUCFs committee from 2009-2010 as marketing officer, helping to create events for the society. It shall be interesting to see if he is able, or willing in this environment, to put a more central and balanced slant on the way the Guild operates. It was also nice to see other Conservative students running for Guild positions, clearly highlighting, that whilst Universities are known for their left leaning persuasions, there are plenty of Tories out there too!
