USWSU allowing exclusion of me from debating society

I was one of the co-founders of the Glamorgan Debating Society. It was a good club until Lio Kaufman and Tim Goss took over. For a number of years I have tried to rejoin the club but have been blocked from doing so, probably because Lio Kaufman and Tim Goss have turned them against me.

This abuse has carried through to the debating society’s Facebook Page where I was banned from leading to Lio Kaufman saying he wished he had done that early. Neither the former president Daniel Bowen or the current vice president Sarah Valkenborghs have done anything to help me rejoin.  Following a complaint Sarah Valkenborghs  said “The Facebook site which you refer to is a members only site, and according to SU records, it appears that you are not registered as a current member.”

The only word I can use to describe Sarah Valkenborghs is “thick” – How can I be a member of a club, even one I co-founded, if I am not being allowed to join! If you look at the debating society’s page on the USWSU website (above) there is no way for me to get any information on joining by being barred from accessing the Facebook page. Sarah Valkenborghs has let me down badly – why should it be permitted to ban me from joining the debating society – which I co founded – just because two relics of debating – Tim Goss and Lio Kaufman – have issues with me?
