Thunder on lightening   Think Pink  
  Dear Editor,

Further to the news article in issue 2 of London Student, I am writing to clarify a couple of points.

Firstly, there has never been a problem with faulty wiring in ULU’s Gallery kitchen. The wiring in the kitchen was thoroughly checked after the first fire last year and a safety certificate was issued. The wiring has been rechecked since the recent fire and has once again been deemed safe.

Secondly, as a result of the fire, the University’s electrical consultyants have recommended that we change all the light fittings within the kitchen. This will be completed before the Gallery diner reopens and thus there is absolutely no reason to believe that the incident will be repeated.

Yours etc,

  Dear Editor,

Am I the only person to notice that you tinted ULU president Siva Ganeshanandan’s picture pink in your first issue? I detected a feint yellow hue over VP Sports Dan Brown’s picture, but the other two remained untouched.

Are you accusing Brown of cowardice, for some reason? If so, what are you accusing Mr. Ganeshanandan of?

I think we should be told.

Yours puzzledly

  Dear Editor,

I have to say that, notwithstanding your running campaign to get people to attend the NUS demonstration on November 1st (Issue 1), I won’t be going.

To clarify, it’s not because I think that tuition fees are anything other than a duff idea, but because I have to work on Saturday afternoons.

Why have NUS, with ULU’s support, moved this action from the traditional Wednesday afternoon slot to a weekend? If ULU can cancel its sporting fixtures on a weekend, why not midweek?

Nul points, NUS. Try harder next time.

  Dear Editor,

Congratulations to the organisers of the anti-fees demonstration on November 1st for holding it on a Saturday for a change.

Now, at least, there’s a fair chance that school and sixth form students – and their teachers and parents – will actually be able to attend. It’s them that will have to pay these fees if (God forbid) they are introduced, after all.
