Max Hall (Honi Soit) fires off a string of questions for SRC President Chloe Smith during the allotted question time.
An hour and five minutes after the meeting was meant to start and we’re (finally) off! Yay, democracy! We’re joined by some observers today from Twins for Tickets. Aside from that, it’s just your regular group of hacks.
