So where was the article on the Guilds Ball making a ?2.5k loss last year as a result of lying and subterfuge on the part of Guilds? Someone bias me thinks.
Perhaps if you were around in the last month of your Sabbatical term instead of rearranging furniture in the Guilds office you would have been involved in the discussions as to why the Summer Ball didn't make any money this year.
Grow up and stop using Live as a ego-inflating organ for Guilds hacks.
Could the reason that there was poor checking on the door be because the union stewards seemed to spend quite a bit of time putting up posters (with sellotape, on glass - both against union poster rules) advertising free entry to the Colin Murray event at the union?
Using stewards to try and attract people away DURING the event (there was a minimum bar spend in the College bars) is VERY bad form.
Those I know who gatecrashed were at the Colin Murray event and then realised he was c**p and liked playing Feeder a little too much. Also having realised the gatecrashing potential of the ball they ran home to halls to pull on their tuxes!
