Democracy Alive and Well in Robinson College Law Society

Subject: RE: Consultative committee

Dear all,

You may remember that some time ago I emailed asking for a volunteer for the Staff-Student Consultative Committee at the Law Faculty. Nitish responded first, so I was minded to give him the job. However, Carl also responded and apparently there have been some concerns that appointment to the committee is not democratic (not in this college, as far as I know, but from other students). If you would like to hold an election, please let me know!!
If I don't hear from anyone seeking to exercise their democratic rights by the end of the day, then Nitish can be our representative.

Best wishes,
Isabella

Hi, no problem with letting Carl take the post on the consultative committee.
No need for an election!
Nitish

Stew, Hirst and I would rather there was an election, to be honest, but we're prepared to let it go on this occasion.

Dear all,
Since everyone is being so diplomatic, perhaps we should have an election. To make life easier for all, I shall put a voting slip in each of your pigeonholes. It will have a number on it but I won't correlate the numbers to the person so voting will be anonymous. Anyone who wishes to vote should fill it out and give it to the porters to be put in my pigeonhole by 9am on Thursday morning (30 October). Obviously there is still some room for
vote-rigging but I am sure everyone will be honest! Let me know if this sounds like it might be a problem.
Best wishes,
Isabella

In the circumstances perhaps we ought to have manifestos (let's keep them short - say 3000 words max) and hustings?

I may be going mad but who is Hirst? And why is he on my list?  
Isabella

-----

Hirst? He's a third year lawyer, sits with me and Stew. Changed over from Nat Sci I think.
Ian

-----

Well, he'll have to go back to nat sci. I can't handle any more lawyers - especially if they're friends of you and Stew! And the same goes for Rob Ward, who also seems to have miraculously appeared on my list.
Isabella

-----

How strange, there must be a virus in the email list or something! I'll tell Hirst he can't change. He was so looking forward to studying Civil Law II as well...
Ian

Dear all,
After campaigning resembling that taking place currently across the Atlantic, we have a close-fought electoral victory of 7 votes to 6. Hereafter, Robinson shall be represented on the Staff-Student Consultative Committee by Nitish Upadhyaya. God bless democracy.
Isabella

... recount?
