2001 Students’ Union reviews

By Lawrence Bailey

It is the job of politicians to run the show. By casting our ballots, we give them our approval, our confidence and control over aspects of our lives. Therefore we also have expectations of them. We expect them to keep their promises, we expect them to represent our interests, we expect them to fulfil their duties and above all else we expect effort and honesty.

It is the job of journalists to keep an eye on the world–politicians included. We too are representatives of the people and need to earn and retain their respect. It is also our job to hold politicians to their promises, ensuring they are responsible to the electorate.

While news stories and opinion pieces are a week-to-week means of doing this, not everyone has the opportunity to keep up. That’s why we at the Gauntlet gave your Students’ Union executives some feedback after their first seven months in office.

So to readers and the execs alike, take the following criticism and praise as the result of a week-long process of interviews, arguments and performance reviews. We’ve debated each of you thoroughly, so before you come to us with your concerns, we charge you to do the same.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

  2. This paragraph provides clear idea for the new viewers of blogging, that
    really how to do blogging and site-building.

  3. When I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a
    comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me
    from that service? Thanks a lot!

  6. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
