Owing to an unforseen turnout, this year's ICU Council Elections were initially counted by hand, but this resulted in some errors and confusion, especially concerning the high position of RON.

Hmmm, so what do you get when people are paid to vote? i am amazed we have not had reports of someone saying

"make sure you vote. if you dont know anyone just vote RON" whilst treasuruers just thought "Ker-ching".

The problem was a lot of people (particularly dramsoc types standing for House Committee!!) didn't bother submitting a manifesto, so when ordinary students (not hacks) voted - who didn't know who the candidates were - they had no idea who to vote for so voted RON.

A sad fact, but if you get ordinary students to vote (by paying their clubs and societies) the candidates at least need to make an effort!

Why is it a sad fact? It's would be quite refreshing if the candidates had to make an effort.

I suppose I meant "sad" rather than sad.

Well it seems that the lack of elected OMs is already going to cause a collection of papers etc for the first quorate meetings of house etc...

House was cancelled today.
