Sarda to face no confidence motion

Resigned Lord Mayor's Show Co-ordinator and C&G Welfare Officer Sanjeev Sarda is to face a motion of No Confidence at the first meeting of the C&G Executive Committee.
C&G Welfare Officer Sanjeev Sarda

Following Guilds? disasterous and highly embarrassing exit from the Lord Mayor?s Show and while negotiations to attempt to secure re-entry to the show are still on-going, ex-Lord Mayor?s Show Coordinator Sanjeev Sarda will face a motion of No Confidence in his position as C&G Welfare Officer.

A motion of no confidence is a formal Union disciplinary motion to dismiss an officer or representative from their position. Under C&G regulations it requires a proposer and ten seconders and, in the case of Union Officers, is presented to the Executive Committee ? a body comprising the central C&G officers including President, Vice-Presidents and the chair of each Departmental Society Committee. This motion will be considered by the Executive Committee meeting on Monday 11th October at 1pm.

The motion is proposed by C&G Union President John Collins. Live! has learnt that an emergency meeting of the C&G Management Committee on Sunday night opted unanimously to recommend the motion to the Executive. The motion alleges that Mr Sarda misled the President about the status of the Union?s Lord Mayors? Show entry and ?demonstrated that he is unreliable, incompetent and dishonest and hence unfit to be a Union Officer?. The motion also alleges that, through the manner of his resignation as Lord Mayors? Show Coordinator, Mr Sarda had ?shown no remorse and made no attempt to apologise for his shortcomings?.

Two thirds of those present and voting at the meeting must vote for a motion of no confidence in order for it to pass.

I guess someone had to take the fall for this debarcle and the Pesident wasn't going to suggest getting rid of himself.

Come on! I want interview! I want cameras! I want videos! I want Stoic! I want Felix! FULL MEDIA COVERAGE!

Felix Editor! Will you come and do a front page? You have to interview all the management committee members. I guarantee they do not even know why they voted unanimously!

Stoic! Will you come and film the whole process? I guarantee it will be the funniest moment in Guilds!

Pleeeeeeeeease! With your help, the bored students will be immensely happy!

I Must report that I belive that Sanjeev has the capasity to be a first rate Welfare officer, and may well be one of the most cabable officers in the Union this year.

I would also like to point out that most of last years Exec were a waste of space for the whole of the holidays last year, even upto the day before the Freshers Fair.

The ability to perform his duties as a union officer should not be indicated by performance in the LMS, which has always been farcical in one nature or another.

The last point is that I distinctly rember someone metioning at their hustings "The buck stops here" type thing. (though I could be wrong)

(hi to all my fans out there!)

"I Must report that I belive that Sanjeev has the capasity to be a first rate Welfare officer"

I must report that 10 students have signed a motion of no confidence in him. The Executive will discuss this motion on Monday.

"I would also like to point out that most of last years Exec were a waste of space for the whole of the holidays last year, even upto the day before the Freshers Fair."

What evidence do you have for that (Given that this year we ran 5 freshers events and refurbed the office)?

"The ability to perform his duties as a union officer should not be indicated by performance in the LMS, which has always been farcical in one nature or another."

Which the Pageantmaster was keen to point out as "unacceptable".

"The last point is that I distinctly rember someone metioning at their hustings "The buck stops here" type thing. (though I could be wrong)"

Which is why I have accepted full responsibility for this farce and why I have personally taken control of the project.

If you think that my resignation will help the Union, then ask for it. If not, then shut up and let the current students get on with running their Union.

Collins,

"I must report that 10 students have signed a motion of no confidence in him. The Executive will discuss this motion on Monday."

Yea...10 muppets who don't even understand the rules & regs and the breach of constitution. Just like you, they are INCOMPETENT.

?What evidence do you have for that (Given that this year we ran 5 freshers events and refurbed the office)??

Please tell me what did Latif, Afifuddin and Chong achieved over the summer holiday? Just like you, the management committee is UNRELIABLE.

?Which is why I have accepted full responsibility for this farce and why I have personally taken control of the project.If you think that my resignation will help the Union, then ask for it. If not, then shut up and let the current students get on with running their Union.?

All your lies and your attempts to mislead the union is enough to show you are DISHONEST.

Shut up and resign please.

Mr Walker, I don't believe that anyone who wants to be president could actually do a better job than Mr Collins.

As for your other comments, they aren't even worth me wasting my time replying to.

Mr Walker, which particular breach of constitution are you referring to? You seem to think you know the various constitutions well and thus will know what to do if you think John (Or any other union officer) is incompetent.

Any person in a presidents type possition has to trust those below to provide accurate information because they don't have the time to read every piece of paper. If Mr Collins feels he cannot trust Mr Sarda then he needs to replace him with someone he can trust.

As for questioning Mr Collins, the success of the C&G freshers events shows that so far he is the right man to do the job.

And a final point. If you are going to post comments accusing someone of been incompetent and dishonest at least have the decency to put an email address in that exists. The exchange server has no record of '[email protected]'.

Mr Collins has one thing that means he should be and should remain CGCU pres, and that is that he actually cares about what he and the union is doing and how well it represents the Engineering students.

John - 8th of october you still want to no confidence me after openly telling people you were dropping it to a censure? Interesting....

What, still no follow up on this? Again, Live! shows itself to be a biased propoghanda machine.

And I have had people make "hurtful" comments about that picture - I believe Live! removes pictures only if there is a threat of a college complaint?
