The Michaelmas line-up has been widely described by Union members as the best for years, featuring musician Billy Joel, FIFA President Sepp Blatter and the President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai.

Joining them will be the schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai, shot by the Taliban for campaigning for women’s right to education, the second man on the moon Buzz Aldrin, Game of Throne’s star Jack Gleeson and civil rights activist Jesse Jackson.

Emma Alexander, a second year PPE student said, “My Union attendance slightly petered off a term or so after joining, but I can tell already that this term’s speaker line up will pull me right back in, especially if the rumours about Malala appearing are true.”
