LSE Students' Union on BBC News

The BBC News website reports on the Union General Meeting at the LSE SU. Sadly, people are still throwing paper, but the BBC article does make it clear that it's only a section who like doing that and that, despite an unholy alliance of neoSinclairists and AU people, an amount of serious debate is going on.

The article did, unfortunately, say that
active union members are a minority among the LSE's 9,000 students, with 20% turnout when it comes to union elections.
which is true, but it compares very favourably with both other students' unions (I remember one ULU election where the electorate was potentially 150,000 and about 350 voted) and, indeed, with council elections. You have to bear in mind that lots of people are only there for one year.
