I am very impressed with Sophie, I think she should be the union's Press Secretary - she'd be a wonderful spokesperson.

I'd quite like to see all of the people who aren't final years (ok, not all - two are clearly out and out jokers) involved in some way next year, if they aren't successful...

Some of the unsuccessful candidates would be prime for some of the elections at the start of next year...... if they have a true interest in the union rather than simply going for the "popularity contest"
