Even now, most folk hush themselves when they enter an ancient church and take a moment to feel the echo of the ages.

James Beeson

The NUS isn't perfect, but to use the analogy a friend of mine put on Facebook, neither is the government. But when a Conservative majority (or Labour majority if you're right-wing) is voted for, you don't threaten to leave the country. You stay, and you criticise, and you vote for someone new.

Peter was a little worse for wear by the end of the show that night. His favourite drink is a cocktail called 'The Brucie Special'. Throughout the set he seemed bent on downing as many as he could.
