“Not This Election Bullshit Again” Say 90% of Edinburgh Students
“Not This Election Bullshit Again”-90% of Edinburgh Students
A bitter snow has fallen, many have been stranded, bread and milk has been taken from the shelves as if they were Iron Bru and yet none of these things have affected this year’s EUSA elections, an event that around 50-60 people are branding the “most important of their lives”.
To some (the candidates and their friends), the 9th of March will represent D-Day, Magna Carta, the Moon Landings and the invention of Pot Noodles all rolled into one… to basically everyone else it represents a time of saying “Not this bullshit again”.
“I am just so uninterested,” commented 5th year medical student Stuart Rodney, “like after a hard day of being on the wards, chatting to patients and trying to learn about what life will look like as a qualified doctor, the last thing I want to think about are the bloody student elections.”
Scientific research backed has up these claims; with a team of experts concluding that the gap between perceived and actual importance of the elections is the largest known to man. Even larger than the gap between critics and fans views of the Last Jedi (also something that isn’t that important, but our writer is a nerd, what you gonna do?).
Yet some would not be put off,
“Student politics may not matter to everyone,” said bland Candidate A (who had promised to make EUSA more transparent and improve the students experience), “But it matters to me and my friends and even though people don’t understand the difference we won’t make, doesn’t mean that we won’t make it.”
Flipside are as confused as you are.
