Madeline Grant will face a disciplinary panel

An Oxford University student who boasted of her "great rack" to try to win a librarian job is to face a disciplinary committee.

Madeline Grant will be charged with bringing the Oxford Union into disrepute, according to the Daily Telegraph after she used the slogan, "I don't hack, I just have a great rack", in her proposed manifesto for the Union job.

Her application was later redacted after the witty line proved highly controversial.

At the time, the National Union of Students Women's Officer Estelle Hart said: "Whilst these comments are obviously ill-advised they are symptomatic of a culture that tells women that their only worth stems from their looks."

Grant haughtily informed the Telegraph on Monday: "I’m wondering if I should leave the Union. The main speakers they have lined up are Geri Halliwell and Nelly Furtado, so I wouldn’t miss much."

When contacted, the Oxford Union said they "didn't know" whether Grant would be appearing at the hearing on Wednesday or not.
