Ben Preston responds...

BEFORE Easter on March 30th The Gown asked your SU President, Ben Preston, the following questions on the future of QUB RAG:

1. Why has QUBRAG not been running this year?

2. Has any attempt been made to get it up and running?

3. Has the post of QUBRAG officer/co-ordinator been advertised?

4. Has the RAG issue been discussed at the Executive?

5. What comments were made on this issue?

Today, on Tuesday 2nd May 2006 your President has replied, saying:


"I'd be happy to give a perspective but RAG is its own society. It's my view that RAG needs to be kick started again with investment from the Students' Union however I wouldn't want to prejudice the internal RAG review findings for next month."


The Gown understands that a proportion of the profit generated from sales of the RAG magazine (PTQ), due to be released later this month, will be re-invested into RAG as a society. The money will help get RAG back on its feet, and recruiting of new members will commence at the freshers fair this October.

The upcoming issue of PTQ is being produced by the SU Executive and will feature the return of Miss PTQ as exclusively revealed by The Gown in April.

Ben Preston...what is his purpose? Why does he get paid? I'm personally broke and I would be willing to fulfil his job (term used loosely) requirements for as little as £20 per day and I dare say I could do it as well if not better than he currently is. I mean how hard could it be to sit on a throne (*******) all day talking ***** about nothing with no results. Actually, I'll do it for a fiver...the Union could save a lot of money here and improve its standards.
