Has @PresidentQMSU resigned yet? If not, this would be the perfect forum in which to do so. Everyone loves a tearful goodbye. #QMelections
“@larrywrites: @bethiargh yes. Definitely. Wing it. Improvise.” the public has spoken. What rhymes w/ "Stone" or "dedication"? #QMelections
Donovan suggests memorabilia, advertising space targeted at Doctors, auctions and that like Rosa said graduates can bring money and experience.
I understand literally 0 of there acronyms. #QMElections
We're hearing from our 6 Ents Officer candidates now. 140 characters isn't enough - check out www.qmsu.org for the list #QMelections
6 candidates running for Ents officer, three slates. There are two positions available #QMelections
Entertainment officer is a two person role. Very popular at Barts. Unlike Mile End, students organise union events themselves. They decide griffin and other events.
One girl in this slate looks like she might vom. I sympathise. #QMelections
Megan Rowley and Amelia Stacey show passion from the role. They speak with smiles on their faces #qmelections
"We can bring you continuality" - bloody medics #QMElections
Lots of exciting event ideas being proposed by your candidates for Entertainments Officer (Barts and The London) #QMelections
Laura Middleton and Lawrence Dodders speak about their experience and about widening participation #qmelections
Megan and Amelia. They love partying!!! Want to establish a committee on participation. I think BL participation was amazing in comparison to QM. Medics always aim high.
Laurence Dodders speaks about his plans for The GriffInn, which would also widen participation within the Union #qmelections
Laura Middleton and Laurence Greenhalgh are another paid for ENTs officers. Want to develop griffin events, a committee and draw trade away from the Good Sam (pub on Whitechapel campus)
Lots of questions for ENTs officers. First question, what would you do for students who don't drink? Second, how would you widen participation in Tables (BL version of Hail Mary except messier)?
So onto ents questions: What events will you put on that don't revolve around alcohol? #QMelections
"Ppl who don't drink alcohol and don't lk being around it" - really?! this is uni, its a necessity of life #QMelections
"Wake up in a bush?" I just ask what kind @WONGguy #QMelections
Amelia and Megan have already planned events that are inclusive for nondrinkers. Also want to develop Tables so that others can get involved, not just sports. Maybe a non-alcoholic version?
"It's not ALL about getting wasted and waking up in a bush." So it's definitely about waking up in a bush some of the time? #QMelections
Sound byte "Wake up in a bush" from Laura.
why has no one made some buzzword bingo cards for #qmelections ?
Wouldn't be the first time someone got infected at a BLSA event #STI #QMelections
"Enthusiasm is infectious and we can infect everyone?" Isn't tht the opposite of what medical students are supposed to do? #QMelections
Enthusiasm is infectious, room full of medics, at least they know their audience? #qmelections
Attendance drops after freshers week, how do you plan to combat this? - Joe
Griffin will be open during the day next year? - Sam
Maria and Amelia - Advertise food and space to hangout/eat. Our enthusiasm is infectious and "we can infect everyone". Developing study groups in the Griffin and being aware of exam timetables.
Laurence and Laura - Dentists need to be involved in this process. OFten ignore by ENTs. Laurence has organised socials with other universities.
Impressed by George's ability at knowing everyone asking questions #community
"Certain nights that Barts would want people from QM to come down and certain nights they wouldn't be wanted" - Laurence, Candidate for ENTs officer
What goes on on a Wednesday that Barts don't want us at..? #QMElections
@EllenTansey Barts version of Hail Mary called Tables. Sporting and societies rivalry.
Does Dental Beer Race need rebranding? Same event, different name? Union have gone against event because of name.
Great questions from the audience. Now onto External affairs officer, only one candidate Jonathan Cramphorn #qmelections
Jon Cramphorn, current VP Barts, candidate for External Affairs Officer. Wants to get money to improve graduation event. After speech, no questions and Jon leaves.
No questions for Cramphorn. He left the room. Everyone laughed #qmelections
That was quick. No questions. It's Secretary (Barts and The London) next: one candidate Riana Patel #QMelections
Riana Patel, 1st year medic, 1st year course rep, SJA member and candidate for Secretary. Wants to use this to get more involved. Will feedback council to all and ensure efficiency so "BLSA can focus on you". "Vote Riana, Not RON"
Riana Patel is running for BL Sec. She says she'll focus on BLSA so BLSA can focus on you #qmelections
Final part time officer role. Hour and a half. Good timing so far.
Rewinding now to candidates for Barts and The London Faculty Representtive (Pre-Clinical) #QMelections
Russel Donovan is running for pre-clinical rep. Now speaking (he's Richard Donovan's little brother!) #qmelections
