The efforts of the JCR presidents on behalf of Nathan Roberts, ex Queen’s JCR President, to get him reinstated in the role, have been vindicated by the success of one small bear.

The teddy bear, put up for election for JCR President by Roberts yesterday, was victorious with 51% of first preference votes.

Roberts had been forced by the SCR to resign his position after achieving a 2:2 equivalent mark in prelims.

Stefan Baskerville, OUSU President, 30 JCR Presidents and students of Queen’s college criticised the decision of the SCR and urged that they reconsider their decision.

However, the SCR refused to allow Roberts the opportunity to appeal. With the triumph of Roberts’ teddy bear, the student body have defied the decision in a victory for JCR autonomy.

All await a response from the College authorities.
