Glasgow University hasn’t been short of dramatic events over 2011. This includes a march of over 3,000 students against course cuts, a major police operation attempting to evict a student occupation which was successfully opposed by hundreds of student protestors, and a tight election for the Student Representative Council (SRC) presidency which saw the Left come within a couple of hundred votes of winning. The situation has now developed to the point where the victor of that election, Stuart Ritchie, has been forced to resign only months into the first semester.
