The Union politics show Ask The President returns to stoic tv once again, with the Union President on hand to answer students' questions since Easter.
The March edition was the first since the sabbatical elections, and sparked debate on John Collins' combined role as President and returning officer for the elections, and the resulting farce. The President acknowledged it had created "a bad stink" and that Presidents didn't make good returning officers. He argued that now being part of the "student movement" meant that we could now learn lessons from other Unions: "every other student union in the country, pretty much, doesn't allow this to happen", he explained. "It was only when we started seeking advice that we realised how wrong we were."
Other questions covered the NUS and the continual issue of the Beit redevelopment, where future plans for dB's were discussed.
The April/May edition of the show is set for broadcast online and in the JCR on Monday 28th May. Questions for the President can be sent to [email protected] before 3pm tomorrow (Wednesday), or can be posted in the discussion below.
