My apologies to those readers who checked my blog on Monday for my latest post. I have a 1600 word feature on mephedrone and legal highs raring to go that I wrote for Student Direct; I was hoping to post an extract and link to their website and have waited to see if they are going to upload it, but unfortunately it hasn’t been updated for some time. The article will go out on this blog next Monday instead, so please check back then. Sorry for the delay. Sarah.
Dear Student Direct,
you have received many a letter from me in the past keeping your illustrious and distinguished readers aware of the beard vs. non-beard ratio on our Union Executive. Sadly in recent years the bearded masses have lost ground and this year, only Miles is keeping up the hirsute tradition, and even then he only has a little moutee thing. The full follicled days of Dan Lee and Gabriel Hassan are gone, it would seem!
How can we say that we represent students when the more flocculent among us are so obviously unrepresented at the highest levels of our union? This inequality must end. I call on the exec to take heed of this issue and immediately require at least one or two of their number to sport some fuzz. Given her manifesto commitment to prioritising student concerns, I am sure Sarah Wakefield would look lovely with a beard.
