I suppose I could go and read it all but seriously, life’s too short. What I’ve gathered is that despite losing the vote 170 odd to 40 odd, Jezza is staying. Stating that the vote has no “constitutional validity” or summat.
All of which reminds me terribly of the student Trots of my own day where the sub sub committee on rules making for the proposing of matters for consideration by the sub committee was where all the power was. Control the rule making agenda and you control the whole organisation – or at least those 50 people who took student politics seriously. And that sub sub committee was where all the Trots were of course.
And Tom Watson as Leader?
The past isn’t a proof of the future but it is indicative. What used to happen when the will of the majority was frustrated by some ruling from the sub sub committee on what motions could be tabled was that 90% fucked off round the pub and went and joined the racing club or the rugby team instead of doing student politics. Sure, the Trots ended up running the student union but no one gave a fuck quite frankly. Even they weren’t going to do something stupid like close the cheap bar.
Wonder is that past actually will be a guide to the future?
