How many Hours a week do you expect to work?
A lot.

What do you think of Union Council?
I’m about to find out!

Do you regret anything in your manifesto?
No. I think that the manifestos are revealing of what the candidate is like, and the sort of issues that the candidate prioritises. However, none of us have been through our sabb training yet so of course our policies aren’t watertight and many might not be do-able. It’s the though that counts during elections.

Anything Else we should know?
I used to live by the maxim: If it rhymes it must be true. e.g. there is no school today ‘cos the rain has washed it away. However, I’m happy to say that I’ve moved on because I could not reconcile the fact that the maxim itself did not rhyme.
