Frankly, since joining IC, I've been studying real hard and during this summer break i'll probably be interning somewhere to cover my London costs. So unless the NUS will give me discount at the baguette shop, i don't see how it's going to improve my uni life. I'd rather we throw that money in organising outrageous clubbing nights every friday in the dinning hall (prof. djs, sound system, subsidised beer... baguettes, (kidding)).
the dpcs or a bunch of people who are not even from imperial? all this talk of ringfencing is highly unlikely. if it was true, it would have been released as an official statement. if the money stays in the union pot, there would be some way to move it around so that clubs would benefit.
