Last night the University of London Union agreed to an arrangement where Imperial College Union may continue to enter sports teams into their leagues and cups when Imperial withdraws from the University of London. Participation in leagues had already been agreed in principle, however it was thought cups stood a chance of being denied.
In an email circulated this morning ICU President John Collins described the events at ULU:
"This proposal was controversial and a fierce debate ensued for over half an hour. After much political drama - procedural motions and stalling tactics were narrowly defeated and the motion was allowed to pass."
Mr Collins also criticised Imperial's delegates to ULU council for not turning up last night, something which made the whole process more difficult than it should have been. Our ULU delegates were elected last month but neither attended last night's crucial decision.
