This policy was discussed at the following meetings:

  • Water is a chemical substance with the chemical formula H2O. Its molecule contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms connected by covalent bonds. Water is a liquid at ambient conditions, but it often co-exists on Earth with its solid state, ice, and gaseous state, water vapour or steam.
  • Water covers 71% of the 'Earth’s surface, and is vital for all known forms of life.
  • The continued existence of the laws of physics, that confine water to liquid state in ambient conditions, allow the Union to function more effectively than if they were to discontinue, allowing both students and staff to drink, wash, extinguish fires and of course water-ski.
  • That should the laws of physics somehow unravel themselves, the consequences for the Union, the University, Humanity, firemen and wake boarders would be quite inconvenient.
  • That the President should always work to foster a sense of safety and wellbeing among the membership of the Union.
  • That the fears of its membership would be much quelled if the Union could guarantee the “wetness” of water at a public display.
  • That given the yearly transition in membership of the Union, such a display should take place annually.
  • That the Sabbatical Officer team must conduct an annual test during Freshers’ Week to determine the wetness of water.
  • That such a test will involve the suspension of the Sabbatical Officers over a body of water in a public forum and subsequent drop into that water.
  • That the Sabbatical Officers will deliver their verdict on whether or not “water is wet”.
  • That the Sabbatical Officers will amend this motion no more than once a year so as to pass on their wisdom and equip the incoming Sabbatical Officers with better ability to determine the wetness of water.
  • That as a matter of urgency we should test this before 30th June 2010.
    Sorry, there are no Mandates for this policy
