Elections. Elections. Eleections. All I can think about is ELECTIONS. I lost to a Megalomaniac who claimed she was going to make a Dykes Of Manchester calendar and cards identifying people by their sexuality. I can't believe people were stupid enough to vote for her when she's quite obviously going to do fuck all for gay rights. Ironically, the LGB campaigns officer came last. LGB were furious and they're going to appeal. Apparently all the homophobes voted for the Meg. It fucking figures. (The NUS conference was great, btw, but I can't be arsed writing about it.)
The count went on until 6am, although I left before that due to tiredness and extreme drunkenness. Some candidates I supported got in (Kate Byron got Women's Officer, Steve the Jackass guy got Gen Sec, Big Rob got Campaigns and there were a couple of others but I've forgotten). Others didn't. I've discovered that if you're up against someone from ISoc, you're screwed. Practically everyone on the new council is Muslim. I'm not arsed what religion a person is, but it's so stupid to vote someone purely because you're the same religion, or not to vote for a Jew just because of the situation in Israel! Hello? We're in the Manchester student union, not the West Bank! The worst was when this anti-Semitic twat called Carlos got in for Student Activities. One of the Jews cried when she heard. Apparently he condones terrorism. Swizz backed him. I didn't.
Swizz were giving me the evils because I was hanging out with the JSoc, but who cares? They're a laugh, and I'm not going to let my politics interfere with my friendships. (See also: Rob.) This bollocks has been pissing me off for the last 2 days. This conversation went as follows.
Lotte: "I'm going to stay for Matthew's result."
Little Rob: "Who?"
Lotte: "Matthew Granger."
Little Rob: "Why?"
Lotte: "I voted for him."
Little Rob: "Why did you vote for that right-wing shit?"
Lotte: "Because! He's a dude. I go clubbing with him..." Little Rob gives Lotte the evils. Exit Lotte in a rage.
Swizz all really hate Matthew. Why? Because he's a Zionist. And I should hate him for it, why? Am I a Palestinian? No. Is Matthew responsible for the deaths of Palestinian people? No. I don't give a toss if he's Zionist, I think he'd do a good job and that's what counts. I'll like who I bloody well want to. Besides, the guy is actually a SOCIALIST for fuck's sake. But whenever I talk to Matthew and Swizz members are nearby, they glare at me! How does talking to someone make me the same as them? I don't get it. I'm still pro-Palestine. And if Matthew wins - he thinks he won't, because he's up against an ISoc candidate, but I think he's in with a chance - I will laugh in Swizz's faces.
God, Swizz annoy me. I went for a meal with them last night and people were trying to get them to shut up about the election, me in particular as I was worried they were going to start on the subject of JSoc. They didn't, thank god. If they'd started slagging Matthew off, I would have walked out.
