If you didn't make it to the Union you can find out who the winners are here. We'll be updating the article to make it a bit more interesting tomorrow. In the meatime we're gonna go drink champagne.
Who's it going to be...?

Results were announced in the Union at 6:30pm. Sorry for the delay, the Union wouldn't let us have the numbers and forced us to get them from their propaganda site instead. *Insert profanities from Live! Editor here.*

Live! Competition

One person got the combination of all the winning Sabbaticals correct in Live!'s 2009 Sabbatical Competition. However, seeing as it was Live! Editor Kirsty Patterson we disqualified her. Coming in close second, only incorrectly guessing the Felix Sabbatical was Ashley Brown who was also disqualified for winning his Sabbatical election. In third place were four people with exactly the same entry however, as one of these was Jenny Wilson, we wittled it down to only three possible winners by disqualifying her aswell.

This makes the winners of this year's Sabbatical Election Competition:

  • Amanda Cheung
  • Lawrence Weetman
  • Gavin Evans

An independant adjudicator picked a random number to discern who would win the coveted Summer Ball Entertainments Ticket. After picking Lawrence Weetman we decided this might look dodgy on Live!'s part so disqualified him aswell (sorry Lawrence). Eventually, Gavin Evans was selected to win the Summer Ball Ticket with Amanda Cheung receiving a CGCU T-shirt as second prize.

Thanks to everyone who entered. Better luck next time!

Just no, Zoe. Just no.

Mar 19 2009 01:33

I'm OK with most of them, but DPE, seriously, for a guy who has practically been doing the job unpaid for the last two years not to get elected is absolutely criminal. Jonathan Silver, I hope you have enough commitment and exprience to live up to the expectation of your voters.

Mar 19 2009 02:22

Mike - what did Zoe do wrong?

7. Mike   
Mar 19 2009 08:29

I think "What did she do." would be a better question.

My predictions were a big cack in retrospect.

Who won Kirsty?

Mar 19 2009 11:14

Did anyone actually read the manifestos for DPE?

10. DPE.   
Mar 19 2009 11:35

WTF is going on there? No confidence.

Mar 19 2009 11:52

I'm just glad none of the "free Palestine", "end the war on terror" nutters got in. Save that for SOAS et al.

I mourn the death of any intelligent discussion when that is the first think you can say.

What is wrong with felix anyway?

He clearly means 'thing', right? I don't have a problem with felix either. He can't be as bad as Rupert Neate!

BTW, does Mr Silver's photo freak out anyone else?

Dep Soc Results were done separately, by different people...

CGCU ones were announced at the AGM today.

Hopefully Mr Silver can use his "Come Hither" eyes to seduce lecturers next year?

Alternatively, as Mark Mearing-Smith assumes everyone is going to use Google Chrome as a browser, you can view them in a format where position and results are both visible here at Live! along with the CGCU Election Results.

What DID she do then?

21. @16   
Mar 20 2009 01:49

If he's talking about 'intelligent discussion' then surely using incorrect words spoils his argument?

22. @21   
Mar 20 2009 08:16

Quite possibly true, but could be just a typo. Hell, I've IM'ed my flatmate to buy a bag of SHOULDER before, which is probably not what you expect to put in your tea or coffee.

Are we bold enough to assume that the call for 'intelligent discussion' is even from a bloke?

You tard! How can you say that after they have been democratically elected! Just because they aren't who you voted for doesn't mean they are c**p. They have been elected by the students to represent the students. Grisman has the experience but clearly you the students didn't want that. You can't no confidence someone before they start the role based on the fact that their opposition was potentially better than them. Grow up!

Live! Competition Winners are now included in the article! Sorry for the delay.
