If I was a betting man, and in the unlikely event a bookies were prepared to offer odds on a Varsity event, I'd have my money on Uni to win on Wednesday. Why? Because the University of Nottingham have never failed to win Varsity Swimming since the event's inception. Clearly being the only University in Nottingham to possess a swimming pool has its advantages!

The Big Picture was presented this week by resident left-wing europhile, Louis Cotgrove. The first topic up for discussion was the recent report that China has developed Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or drones. The topic discussed the impact that this would have on the world political stage, specifically in regard to Sino-American relations.
The next topic debated was the decision taken by credit ratings agency Moodys to downgrade the UK from Aaa to Aa1 and what effect this would have on the economy of the UK. The panel quickly descended into partisanship, debating whether the government had under-performed in their promises to help the ailing economy
The final issue on tonight's show was the scandal in Germany regarding the decision taken by Annette Schavan, the education minister, to step down after plagiarising her doctorate. Seven other ministers have also been found out to have plagiarised their doctorates and the panel discussed the impact this would have on Merkel's campaign in September to retain the Chancellorship
Tune in next week for our SU election special!

Remote Control, Under Control
Don't know if you knew this, but it was Hannah's birthday on Friday. (You didn't?! How rude!)
As an extra special birthday present, Izzie willingly offered to be the first victim of Remote Control, Under Control. *cough*crazy*cough*
Saw a girl running around Portland on Friday trying to find a baby?! Yeah... That was probably her. Considering what Hannah had to endure previously , we think they're equal.
Tune in EVERY Friday 12-2pm to hear any music you want. With Remote Control, the power is in your hands. Like, seriously.
