Contributors going into the Felix office this week have been told that the final issue of Felix, slated for release on Monday, has been scrapped. The printers have been unable to find a slot to print it for Monday, and the original slot was released when Felix stopped printing last month. The inability to print may also have something to do with previous invoices not being paid, which led to money being demanded up-front in the weeks before Felix was finally axed.
This new setback for Felix has left many senior members of the union asking exactly what the Felix Editor has been doing with his time. With no paper to write many expected back issues to appear on the the Felix website (indeed, Council were told this would happen), however it is in the same state as it was when it launched four months ago.
Contributors are understandably disappointed that Felix went out with a wimper, not a bang. With money coming in and funding for one issue agreed, many were looking forward to a parting shot from what has become a toothless kitten.
Sykes has been spotted working on the Union handbook and clubs and societies A-Z, in order to get a head-start this year. The team are hoping to avoid begging the executive committee for more money like they had to last year.
