The Green Party, of all the UK’s political parties, is the one most associated with peace and tranquillity. This, however, was not the case in the Oxford Student Greens’ final Trinity Term meeting in 2015.
A quick glance over their minutes from that meeting reveal that the young activists incited the rage of the KA barman by refusing to leave when asked. The minutes reveal that after being told that they “have to leave the pub”, the Greens remained to discuss further issues until the barman became “angry that [they] didn’t leave when [he] told them to.” The minutes close on this rather pointed note. Not very communitarian.
Perhaps, we submit, this was this a revolutionary and rebellious act against the monarchical oppression found in the name of one of Oxford’s favourite drinking establishments.
Whilst HackOx would simply love to be able to bring you more news of what is surely Oxford’s most serious political scandal in recent times, we unfortunately can’t; although the Oxford Student Greens’ website states that “The Revolution Will Be Minuted”, there are no minutes more recent than those from the first week of Michaelmas 2015.
HackOx can only assume that either the student group has disbanded, or that The Revolution Will Only Be Minuted So Long As We Can Be Bothered, thereafter continue behind closed doors whilst the rest of the world goes about their daily lives.
We can but wonder what other dirty secrets lying in the missing minutes of the Oxford Student Green Party…
