The Union President, John Collins, is taking part in the next 'Ask The President' programme on stoic tv. The show puts questions from students directly to John Collins in a 20-minute discussion show hosted by the stoic tv Station Manager, John Anderson.
In the first show, recorded in late October, questions touched on the JCR refurb, the Beit redevelopment, and the then impending NUS referendum. Chris H, a fourth year undergraduate, asked what the use was of College using different names for faculty unions. John Collins discussed the opposition of the Union to the issue, saying "it's just a little bit cheeky and rude, and petty, for College to over-rule us".
On the issue of the Union redevelopment plan, the President acknowledged that asbestos had been found, but commended the opening of Da Vinci's in time for Freshers Fair. "You've got to understand, it was a complete rush job", he explained, "...a year ago, we had no masterplan, we had a few sketches, and now we have building works".
The November edition is to be filmed on Monday 27th November, and will be aired on the stoic tv screens at lunchtime on Thursday 30th, with a webstream available at www.stoictv.com. Any questions for John Collins should be sent to [email protected] before Monday, or posted in the discussion below.
