“Ah f*ck, here we go again”, students let out collective groan as they realise it’s student election week
Words by Gage McGriffin
In what has come as a painful shock to thousands of students waking up this morning, it is once again student election week.
Corflutes, how-to-vote cards, people you were in a group project with 2 years ago messaging you. This week has it all.
On Dit spoke with several concerned students, and silent majority members to get their take on this week’s events:
“Sorry I just want to get to my class.”
- May, 18, Law
“Honestly wasn’t prepared in the slightest. It’s like a war-zone down there, except they’re not perpetuating imperialism, they’re just stacking their CV’s.”
- Elenore, 21, History/Philosophy
“I couldn’t give a shit about real politics, let alone these virgins.”
- James, 25, Rugby Player
“Sorry, I go to Uni SA”
- Ammresh, 19, does not go to Uni SA
Needless to say, it is sure to be a hotly contested election. With neutered campaign rules, weak candidates, and thin-skinned man-children running factions, we are sure to see some drama.
More to come as this hot mess unfolds.
