    Default USI: Gary Redmond was a Fianna Fáiler, who is his replacement, John Logue? [Update: Joe O'Connor elected for 13/14 term]

    Redmond was a slimy piece of work, as well as being a FFer.

    I hear John Logue is the same, a member of UCD's FF Cumann, the Kevin Barry Cumann.

    Anyone know anything about this man?

    Any idea who stood, and what the votes were ?

    These middle-aged/youth FFers do my head in.

    UCD student John Logue is set to become the next President of the Union of Students in Ireland (USI). Logue was favoured over Ciarán Nevin, current DITSU President, by delegates gathered at this year’s USI Congress in Co. Galway.

    Logue will replace Gary Redmond, also a UCD student, who has spent two years at the helm of USI.

    Logue is a former USI Eastern Area Officer. The Donegal man ran for the position of UCDSU Education Officer in 2010 but was defeated by James Williamson.

    Significantly, Logue says he in favour of campaigning for a graduate tax rather than continuing USI’s current fight for free fees.

    Presidential Election Result:

    LOGUE, JOHN (UCDSU) 133 *Deemed elected

    Nevin, Ciarán (DITSU) 43

    By “KBC’er” Ken means Logue is in Fianna Fail.

    Did anyone challenge him on his membership of the fact that his party, while in government, brought the Reg Fee to 1500euro?
    KBCer?

    Is it just that they are politically well organised, or do students want to elect them because they look and sound like politicians ?

    Many of the Celtic Kittens are quite unpleasant individuals so we shouldn't be too surprised at who they choose to represent them.

    DCU it looks like will be having a referendum on whether or not to affiliate with USI - currently they are not and voted against re-affiliating two years ago.

    TCD making moves to leave too.

    Lot of kingpins in the various SU's are some of the most anti collective bargaining shites you will meet. The Union's do great work in a lot of the colleges but nationally they are comprised by the amount of ambitious types who will oppose any sort of boat rocking that might damage the greasy poll in future.
