I would like to display my disgust at the behaviour of the SU President on election night last term. Whilst the other sabs were gracious in announcing their replacements and clearly realised that the night was about the next generation of officers, James Alexander seemed surly and unwilling to get in the swing of the evening.
Before he announced the Presidential results Alexander took to his political soap box and had the cheek to suggest that his best friend Ozzy Atton was “the best President York never had”. Someone so enamoured with politics as Alexander should have faith in the democratic process, rather then be so patronising to suggest that given the opportunity we would all jump at the chance to elect his crony to such a position of responsibility. Alexander should not be so arrogant to think that his opinion matters so much and he should remember his responsibilty to the Union and ALL its students.
