I've just come out of the Pure:FM Candidates' Question Time show. That has to be one of the scariest hours of my life, with the first question - along the lines of, "Introduce yourself and tell the audience a bit about why they should vote for you" - completely throwing me, and I found myself rambling like a loon in the first few minutes of the show. Never a good start, but I know all of the candidates were equally nervous.
I barely slept last night - six hours in bed and I reckon I counted more sheep than I've had hot dinners (but I *am* half-Welsh, so counting sheep is at least 50% more satisfying for me than it is for most people...).
This coming Monday marks the first and most public test of the Media & Publications candidates' abilities and knowledge.
First up is candidates' question time, broadcast live on Pure:FM - the Union's student radio station - at midday.
The basic format for this is an hour of the elections candidates being questioned live on air by a (probably equally nervous) Pure:FM presenter.
