After an increasingly bitter campaign, featuring varying degrees of rulebreaking on both sides, a horrendous “music video” by the Yes side (ft. the OUSU Prez & VP for Women) & hundreds of Facebook posts, Oxford has voted to stay in the NUS.
3409 voted to stay affiliated with the NUS, and 2403 voted to leave , with 136 students abstaining – doing what students supposedly do best, not giving a damn. Turnout was 27.7%, higher than recent OUSU elections…
We’re disappointed for “No Thanks, NUS” and hope the NUS and its supporters have gotten some of the message, put students before politics & bother to deal with the string of problems raised by the No campaign.
