Student Council E-mail Scam
Dominic Doherty, the Student's Union Council Clerk whom the e-mail was falsely claimed to have been sent by, has subsequently communicated to all councillors that the e-mail should be disregarded. The scam has been labelled as an "attempt to subvert the democratic processes surrounding the Student's Union Council".
Mr Doherty has made assurances that the matter will be fully investigated and every attempt will be made to trace the sender of the e-mail with expulsion being stated as the appropriate penalty. Councillors are aksed to attend tonight's meeting (which will be held tonight at 6.15pm in the Club Rooms on the third floor of the Union) as a first step to resist the "anti-democratic agenda" the sender is pursuing.
Student's Union politics has always been a colourful state of affairs but this latest incident has managed to get people talking even before official business has begun.
