GOSS: The Case of The Missing French Press, Funding Delays, and Someone's Wagging School
By Pulp Goss
Though Pulp Goss is more Omniscient Gossip Narrator than actual real life person, Pulp nonetheless acknowledges that editor Madeline Ward is a current member of Grassroots and former SRC Women’s Officer, and that editors Haydn Hickson and Alexander Barnstone have their own political views.
It’s the week before mid-sem and the campus hacks are tired.
A Greater Tragedy Than Notre Dame
In the greater of two tragedies against the French Nation this week, the much treasured French Press of the Queer Space mysteriously disappeared on Monday, before being partially returned with a deeply unhinged note attached. No news yet on which kitchen appliance thieving bastard took the French Press. Any tips or tea about this grievous instance of lateral violence will be very well received in our Facebook or Instagram inboxes.
Can We Get A Fact Check on That Please
Pulp Goss reported a few weeks back that The University of Sydney Women’s Collective had funding retroactively denied by the new executive. 5 months later, they finally have answers: after funding was approved by last year’s executive from the Women’s and Queer budgets for 2019 Welcome Week expenditure, the 2019 Executive voted to rescind the funding because the 2018 budget was supposedly in deficit. Whether or not this is true, and why it took a whole 5 months to communicate this, is at present unclear.
F for Participation
It looks like a certain Alex Yang of Advance will be failing his SRC Executive participation this semester, after failing to attend 6 of the 7 meetings since the beginning of the year. For at least 3 meetings in a row Yang failed to send apologies, which is grounds to have him removed at council. It’s also been alleged that Yang was campaigning for Labor candidates during the missed Executive meetings. Other notable absences include Yuxuan Yang (Panda), who disappeared for a month earlier this year to complete an internship, and Josie Jakovac (Shake-Up), who has failed to turn up to a single council meeting in 2019. Yuxuan was re-elected to the position of General Secretary this year (which comes with a hefty $12K annual stipend) after being absent for 3 months of his term in 2018.
