This year’s inaugural pint and policy fresher’s mixer has provided the society with a number of avenues to explore regarding nationalisation of public services, Arming the police, the death penalty and the governments new proposed deal with the EU.

 

In a pint and policy that was filled with new faces among some old hands, our society debated the following motions:

 

THB we should routinely arm all police in the UK.

THB we should reinstate the death penalty.

THB we should back the government’s proposed new deal with the EU.

 

These motions were debated with rigour in timely fashion as usual. The standard of debate was considered to be quite high by the chair of the motions. After the formal motions ended the floor debate began in order for the committee to begin sizing up the divisions with the society so that they may pose more contentious debates at a formal Port and Policy later in the year. Contentious floor motions ranged from privatisation of certain public services, re-nationalisation of the railways, free trade and military + Aid spending.

 

A good time was had by all and people remined at the social until well after midnight.

NUSU elections successful despite virus

Despite the closure of campus midway through, NUSU elections have been successful. As usual our political wing has been active in this process, for the first time however, the 1963 Committee asked candidates to stand directly rather than simply supporting those that do. This is part of a broader policy shift towards a party style ethos of standing a candidate in every election regardless of the chances of success.

Summer dinner roaring success

With guests coming from York, Sheffield, Durham, Northumberland and Northumbria University an amazing evening was had by all. Port and wine flowed and songs were sung in the Northern Counties Private members club as the society and its honoured friends sat down to a luxurious three course meal.
Speeches, laughter and toasts echoed off the walls as did the national anthem. All were agreed that the evening was a roaring success- a fitting joint effort of the outgoing committee and the incoming.
