Referendum Results

Please remember to vote for the Radical Beer Tribune in Continuous VFM.
– – – – –

In this whirlwind of a morning we’ve seen a meaningful referendum result retracted, and a meaningless one pass. The RBT will be elaborating on how the passage of question eight means nothing for the Society in any way, shape or form later this weekend. The only functional point here is that Bijan starts work two weeks from today, rather than today. That’s going to be an awkward transition to be sure. Or, if we’re lucky, maybe Tim and Blake will just resign.

For clarity’s sake on these, the amount of Yes votes as a percentage of the overall student populace (46,438) must be greater than 8%, and the vote must pass by a majority or, for special resolutions set out as set out in the Societies Act, a seventy-five percent majority.
