Students forget EUSA exists
In a shocking press conference, EUSA has announced that it has been so uncontroversial this year that students have forgotten its existence and are not voting in droves.
EUSA Vice President of Services Jenna Kelly explained the problem to Flipside: “Of our 34,000 students, only 57 have actually voted in this year’s elections. Most of these votes have been from Patrick Garratt VPAA fiddling with the app, so in reality only 12 people have voted. We thought by creating 50 new positions with 100 new candidates, 30 of whom actually have manifestos, it would encourage more people to participate in student democracy.
When Flipside asked if the solution was to reduce the number of positions and candidates, Jenna threw slices of pizza at our reporter until he went away.
To lighten the mood, Flipside spoke to regular student Dan Chambers outside the library, asking him if he had voted in the recent elections. He said: “Nah man, I don’t even know what EUSA is. Has it got anything to do with the Association?”
