Oxford Union Standing Committee Member resigns

Anna Bazley, a member of Standing Committee, has handed in her resignation due to “an irreconcilable conflict in personal loyalties and priorities.”

In her resignation letter sent to President Ben Sullivan, the Returning Officer and other members of Standing Committee, among others, Bazley said, “It is with regret and relief that I write to tender my resignation as a member of Standing Committee. Unfortunately, due to an irreconcilable conflict in personal loyalties and priorities, I am unable to continue in my role on committee.

“I’m sorry this communication comes at such a delicate time, but as many of you are aware this is a decision I have been contemplating for a while, and having made up my mind thought it best to inform committee as soon as possible, to ensure that my successor can have a smooth transition into their new role.”

Bazley continued, “I wish the committee and the Union all the best.”

Ben Sullivan, President of the Union, commented, “We are very sad to hear of Anna’s resignation. She made a great contribution to the Society while on Standing Committee and helped to organise an excellent debate earlier this term. We wish her all the best for the future.”
