Statement from the Students’ Guild following the suspension and reinstatement of NUS Delegate Jack Morewood
NUS Delegates are elected by students based on their manifesto, and although Jack Morewood represented the Students’ Guild as an NUS Delegate at the NUS National Conference 2019, his views and actions on stage that caused his suspension do not reflect those of the Guild, or of the manifesto he was elected on by the student body.
Following Jack’s actions, the Guild President and lead delegate reiterated to Jack that he is a representative of the whole student body, and that he is expected to consider their views in what he says and does at conference.
We would remind all students to consider how their words and actions may impact others. There is no place in our institution or in the national movement for comments that may harm or isolate any of the students that we represent.
