Hackwatch has long thought of Zach Spiro as a rather objectionable character. Now, it appears, Union high-ups are of the same opinion, having just binned him as Returning Officer for Hilary.

Usually, Returning Officers are anointed following opaque Byzantine negotiations in what is known as RO-world. Spiro has quite possibly more enemies than anyone else in Oxford but up until now, Teflon-Zach has managed to avoid their knives. This time, however, they managed to land a fatal blow, filing enough objections against Spiro’s appointment to ruin his expected coronation.

Is this the end of Spiro’s hack career? He has an impressive list of achievements to his name: chucked out of OUCA, discarded from The Tab, and now jettisoned from the Union.

Enjoy City Journalism School, Zach!

    SEXIST PRICK

    WHO IS SPIRO?

    FIRED FROM THE TAB (and they have no standards lol) for unethical and prejudiced reporting.

    MEMBER OF RACIST COLONIAL VICEROYS SOCIETY

    http://oxford.tab.co.uk/2013/08/19/revealed-oucas-secret-dining-society/

    OH AND YES HE’S SEXIST TOO:

    Heard yelling “SHAME for being a woman” at a female speaker at a P&P debate

    LOL. So much for being an avid contributor to Cuntry Living Zach

  8. Remember that time TGR was asked “How did you arrive to deciding on this interpretation of the rules” in a tribunal, and he said “I called my girlfriend…my mum. I spoke to my dad for a bit…”

  9. I have been assaulted by Zach Spiro.

  10. Guys if anyone wants to chat about this development I’ll be running nights in London this week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday (Raffles, Mahiki, Dstrkt, Boujis, etc, all the classic places where the bouncers know me), so feel free to text me and I’ll sort out a TABLE and see you there to discuss!

    Alternatively I’ll be in BRIDGE (Oxford’s biggest student night, I’ve been getting free tables since I came for my interview in 2007) on Thursday night, so join me at my TABLE for the best round up of my insider knowledge of Zac. Blackrock lets everyone go early on Thursday 😉

  11. Seeing Crawfuck slumped into the corner like a miserable sod and loser sends waves of ecstasy running all over my…spine and other regions.

  12. Raucous Risham's Rowdy Rave

    PARDDYYYY OF THE CENTURRRRYYYYY WOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. TW: women, men, Viceroys, OUCA, comment only available in English, lack of protest.

    As a close friend of Zac’s who has definitely not been just using him since Trinity, I would like to say that the fact that Zac shouted “SHAME FOR BEING A WOMAN” and was later chucked out of OUCA and the Viceroys is not a problem for me or Cuntry Living. Clearly Zac’s lifestyle and journalistic ambitions at the Daily Mail being the antithesis of everything I stand for is all part of the plan, and not a sign that we’re not really friends.

  14. This is such a waste of all the lessons I gave Zac on fixing elections.

  15. Hi guys, just to remind everyone (incase they’ve forgotten), I’m travelling, you know, like I did for a whole year during my gap year. Its not like I mention it all the time, but like I love to travel and couchsurf.

    Just wanted to make sure my absence from facebook and lack of self-deprecatory album titles I post doesn’t distract everyone away from thinking that I’m a true MARTYR, you know, going off on my own without a return ticket and stuff, and like sleeping in a tent, and like not knowing where I’m going to get my next meal from, is really not a big deal. I mean I wouldn’t want anyone to forget that it is not a big deal right?

    xoxoxo

    SHOCKING!

  17. Guys, I hate Zach Spiro since he helped Mayank and his slate during elections and even offered to plant a bug and blame it on me in a news story. But we chilled together in bow ties made out of old rugs last term because Spiro was my useful idiot in trying to destroy the Union since my record breaking defeat.

  18. Once I pissed in Crawford’s pipe and then watched him smoke out of it. Yup, I really did.

    • I can confirm since I was an eyewitness to this most legendary event.

      • Kostas Chrysanthopolopololoplous

        Was it the pipe he got from the Persian wise man in Mongolia by trading a set of his great grand mother’s curtains or was it the one I got him fashioned out of a Mayan fertility doll?

  19. IM A SLIME BALL IM A SLIMY LIZARD

  26. This is top banter guys keep it up

  27. Hey guys, I find this whole thing very intimidating. Time to call the police and tell them that a ‘threatening environment’ is being created!!!’

  28. Zachary Spiro, a second-year biochemistry student at Oriel and deputy news editor on The Tab Oxford, says the perception among the public and Oxford students is very bad. ‘It’s really not cool to be involved,’ he says. ‘Because its image is so toxic.

  29. Has vaughan come out of the closet yet?
