A Memorial Day grilling feast

first_img Editor’s Note – The Grill Whisperer is a fly-by-night grilling expert that travels the world in constant search of grilling techniques, recipes, and spices to perfect his craft. Occasionally, he lands in Apopka where he writes an exclusive article for The Apopka Voice. He will not allow any changes or edits to his column, so if his article is too long, grammatically incorrect, or in some way offensive, The Apopka Voice takes no responsibility. GW will be in townMemorial Day weekend, but beyond that, there is no telling. This is the third of three columns he has agreed to write. The payoff grilling feast. Enjoy.Ladies and Gentlemen, start your grills.Okay, here we go. You have cleaned your grill. You have gone to the grocery store. You have everything you need.Turn the grill on high and close the lid. We want it blazing by the time you start putting food in there. And it will be. You have a lot of prep work inside to tend to before we get back.In the kitchen, turn the oven on at 275 degrees. You may need this to keep certain items warm if they finish early.Cut the tops off of the garlic heads off and place a pat of garlic herb butter over each. Wrap them in tin foil and put them on the grill at the top level as far away from the flame as you can. The garlic heads will be the first in and the last out. Your guests will not believe how tender these come out on a grill.Roasted GarlicCut the little potatoes in half. Put the olive oil, salt, and pepper into a plastic bag. Pour the potatoes into the bag and shake. Make sure they are all coated well.Put the potatoes in a grill basket and place them in the lower left corner of the grill. You’ll have to keep a close watch on the potatoes because you will be opening and closing the grill throughout the cooking cycle. This makes their ready time unpredictable. Shake the basket occasionally so they don’t stick to the bottom. They could be ready anytime between 45-60 minutes, so stick a fork in them occasionally. If it goes through easily, they are ready.Take out the steaks and arrange them on a large cutting board. Lightly drizzle a little Worcestershire Sauce on them and rub it into the meat. Put a fairly good coat of extra coarse salt and pepper on each steak. Add a light coat of garlic powder. Massage the seasoning into the meat. Turn them over and do it again. Put the steaks in the refrigerator and forget about them for a while.Take the asparagus out and cut the stems about one-third of the way up. That should take care of the stringy part. Fill another bag with salt, pepper and olive oil along with garlic powder and shake thoroughly with the asparagus inside. Put those back in the refrigerator next to the steaks still in the bag.Take out the mushrooms, peppers, and onions. Quarter the mushrooms. Cut the peppers and onions until you have slices about the same size as the mushrooms. We want these three vegetables to cook at about the same speed.Roasted PotatoesThe Menu:Grilled Ribeyes topped with peppers, onions, and mushrooms Roasted Garlic HeadsRoasted PotatoesAsparagus Grilled Corn on the CobIn a large bowl, pour in the olive oil, salt, and pepper then mix together. Pour the three vegetables into the bowl and toss thoroughly until all are well coated. Place the vegetables in a grill basket and set in the refrigerator next to the steaks.Take out the corn. Peel back the corn husks, keeping them attached. Discard the silk. Spread the herbed garlic butter all over the corn. Fold the husks back over the corn. Wrap the corn in foil and take it to the grill. In a tight formation, add the corn to the right of the potatoes. Stir the potatoes to keep them from sticking to the grill basket and check them with a fork. When you get back to the kitchen, set a timer for 15 minutes.Take a beer out of the cooler and sit with your guests. You have 15 minutes before your next dish goes on the grill.The Grill Whisperer has a story that will put your mind at ease while you prepare this incredible meal.There once was a great Zen master (or maybe it was a short order cook) who told the Grill Whisperer to calm his mind and realize that the grill does all of the cooking. You are only there to watch and occasionally move food on and off the grill. Tell your guests that story. They will laugh and be amazed at how calm you are.When the bell rings, bring out the mushroom, peppers, and onions. Place it on the lower left corner of the grill.Grilled Peppers, Onions, and MushroomsRemove the foil and put the corn right on the grill. Grill the ears until the husks are nicely charred. After three minutes, turn them over and grill the other side for another three minutes.Stir the potatoes again and check them with a fork to see if they are done. Take the corn off the grill and remove the husks. You will begin to realize at this point how special that garlic herb butter is when you get that first smell. Reserve the corn in the oven.Bring the steaks and asparagus out of the refrigerator and to the grill. Scrape the grill one last time with a grill brush where the steaks will be. Put olive oil on a paper towel and lightly grease the grates. This is called “seasoning the grill”.Turn the grill from high to medium-high. Toss the mushrooms, peppers, and onions. Do the same to the potatoes. Put the asparagus on top of the potatoes.There are a few things to consider before we start the main event. Ribeyes are a pretty forgiving cut of meat.  The fat marbling makes for a very flavorful and juicy steak without a lot of effort. The biggest thing to keep in mind when grilling steak is that you can always throw it back on the grill if it isn’t done, but you can’t reverse an over-cooked steak. So err on the side of rare. Our goal is medium rare.Each steak typically has a pointy end. As you place the steak on the grill, set the pointy end so that it is pointing at two o’clock. The steaks will grab the grill and hang on for dear life. Don’t worry though, in two minutes they will relinquish because of your “seasoning” trick.At this point, you are on flare-up watch.  The fat dripping off of those beautiful steaks is bound to create an eager fire that will react.  If a flare-up occurs and doesn’t go away in a few seconds, simply use your tongs to slide the steaks away from the open flame until the flame dies down and then move them back over the heat.After two minutes, rotate the steaks from two o’clock to five o’clock. Don’t turn them over and don’t stab the steaks with any sharp device. We want every drop of juice to stay in those ribeyes. Use tongs.If the cross marks aren’t perfect, you have one more shot with the other side of the steak.After two more minutes turn the steaks over. Make sure your angled grill marks are perfect! This is the mark of a true Grill Master. If any of the marks are less than perfection, you have another chance with the new side of meat. Otherwise, let them go for another four minutes to cook them at medium rare.Toss the mushrooms, peppers, and onions. They should be done by now. Take them off the grill and set them next to the corn in the oven. The asparagus and potatoes should be done as well. Take them off the grill and set them in the oven.Remove the steaks from the grill and allow them to rest for five minutes before serving.  The resting period is important so that the juices don’t run out when you cut into the ribeye. The Grill Whisperer could make further suggestions, but he prefers to fade off into the emerging sunset and let the student take all the credit for their grilling success. You have come a long way on this journey. Maybe have another exotic beer and watch your guests enjoying themselves. You’ve earned it. Your skill on the grill is confirmed. Until I am in Apopka again, have a great summer on the grill!

Trump bajo fuego: el dilema de la clase dominante

first_imgDonald Trump ha sufrido una serie de golpes por las fuerzas anti Trump en la clase dominante y el establecimiento legal. Esto sin duda ha alentado a las fuerzas progresistas y revolucionarias que legítimamente quieren ver a este Trump reaccionario, autoritario, racista y misógino caer.Los eventos recientes han golpeado a Trump. Su gerente de campaña, Paul Manafort, fue condenado en el juicio por ocho cargos criminales de fraude y evasión fiscal. Su abogado de muchos años y “reparador”, Michael Cohen, se declaró culpable y apuntó con el dedo a Trump por violaciones de la ley de campaña. Estos acontecimientos llegaron el mismo día.Al día siguiente se reveló que el presidente ejecutivo del National Enquirer, David Pecker, que operaba una hoja de escándalo pro Trump, había recibido inmunidad para hablar sobre cómo trabajó con Michael Cohen para suprimir historias críticas sobre Trump comprandolas y luego no publicarlos.Veinticuatro horas después se reveló que el CFO de la Organización Trump, Allen Weisselberg, también recibió inmunidad para testificar. Weisselberg ha estado a cargo de las finanzas de la Organización Trump desde los días del padre racista y pro nazi de Trump, Fred Trump.Wall Street y Pentágono trazan línea sobre Rusia y RPDCPoco después, el Secretario de Estado Mike Pompeo fue obligado a suspender su viaje a la República Popular Democrática de Corea con una semana de aviso. Pompeo ya había elegido al jefe de Ford Motors para dirigir la delegación. La semana pasada notamos que el desfile militar de Trump fue cancelado y que el Pentágono y la clase dominante se resistían a su intento de realinear la política exterior imperialista de Estados Unidos hacia Rusia, que la clase dominante ha bloqueado. (“Revuelta de los espías”, WW, 23 de agosto)El último movimiento para cancelar el viaje de Pompeo a la RPDC es la respuesta de la clase dominante al intento de Trump de realinear la política exterior de EUA en la península de Corea. Finalmente, firmando un tratado de paz con la RPDC – para una guerra que terminó en un punto muerto hace 65 años – es una condición para seguir adelante. Todo el establishment militar y político se opone a esto y finalmente gana, incluso cuando Trump estaba siendo debilitado en los tribunales.La clase dominante ha establecido la línea en lo esencial. Pueden vivir con las atrocidades fascistas de Trump en las fronteras, separando familias inmigrantes. Pueden hacer caso omiso de su apoyo a la brutalidad policial y el asesinato en las comunidades afroamericana y latina. Pueden vivir con sus insultos racistas contra África y Haití.Pero cuando se trata de lo básico, la agresión hacia Rusia y la apertura de relaciones pacíficas en Corea, Wall Street y el Pentágono trazan una línea cerrada.Los jefes rechazan la destitución por ahoraDebe notarse que estos acontecimientos han sido acompañados por un esfuerzo concertado para enterrar cualquier movimiento incipiente para la destitución, que ha sido acelerado por los reveses legales de Trump.Este esfuerzo para anular cualquier conversación sobre el juicio político proviene tanto del liderazgo del Partido Demócrata como de los republicanos por igual. Una larga historia en el New York Times cuenta cómo la jerarquía del Partido Demócrata está tratando de apagar los incendios de destitución entre los demócratas de base. La línea del partido es proteger la investigación de Mueller y dejar que se desarrolle. (25 de agosto)En este momento, la clase dominante es cautelosa de avivar un movimiento de destitución. Hay al menos dos razones. En primer lugar, están sacando toneladas de dinero por los beneficios de los recortes tributarios y la desregulación por Trump. El recorte total de un billón de dólares reduce directamente los gastos corporativos y va directamente al resultado final de la empresa. Las ganancias se dispararon durante dos trimestres. Ningún jefe o banquero quiere sacudir ese bote.Segundo, tienen miedo de provocar una rebelión de derecha desde la base de Trump. Escuchan los mítines de Trump, que continúan tal como fueron durante la campaña, a pesar de todas las revelaciones sobre lo que es un racista de mala vida, misógino y fanático, Trump. La burguesía es siempre colaboradora, conciliadora o cobarde frente a la derecha, y esta es una lección que la clase trabajadora siempre debe recordar.Todas las acusaciones, negociación de culpabilidad, inmunidades, exposiciones, etc., ascienden a esto: las fuerzas anti-Trump en la clase dominante están bailando con Trump. En este momento, la clase dominante está tratando de debilitarlo principalmente con ataques legales y publicitarios. Esto puede cambiar en circunstancias futuras como por ejemplo, si la guerra comercial con China se sale de control o algún otro acontecimiento catastrófico amenaza sus intereses capitalistas. Pero, en última instancia, esperan eliminarlo a través del proceso electoral de 2020.El mejor escenario político para las fuerzas anti-Trump en la clase dominante es para que los demócratas ganen la mayoría en la Cámara de Representantes. Esto les dará el poder de convocar audiencias, traer testigos, citar testimonios y documentos, y librar una guerra de relaciones públicas contra Trump, mientras deja abierta la cuestión de la destitución.En la actualidad, las masas enfrentan tres alternativas prácticas para eliminar a Trump: acusación, juicio político o elecciones. Las tres son soluciones de la clase dominante en arenas dominadas por el capital. La izquierda radical y revolucionaria definitivamente crecían, incluso antes de que Trump entrara. Pero dada la relación actual de las fuerzas políticas, y dada la relativa debilidad numérica de los revolucionarios y radicales izquierdistas, estas soluciones de la clase dominante son las únicas vías para eliminar realmente a Trump en este momento.Formas de luchar contra Trump y el Trumpismo Sin embargo, hay muchas formas de luchar contra Trump y Trumpismo sobre el terreno, como derrocar símbolos racistas, luchar para abolir el Servicio de Inmigración y Aduanas, sitiar los centros de detención de inmigrantes, apoyar la actual huelga de prisioneros, luchar contra la brutalidad policial, defensa de los derechos de las tierras nativas, exigiendo el derecho de las mujeres a la justicia reproductiva y los derechos LGBTQ, manifestaciones en contra de la guerra, etc. Todas estas son luchas justas que pueden estar directamente relacionadas con la lucha contra Trump. Pueden y deben emprenderse.La propaganda y la agitación contra la reacción de Trump son otras vías importantes para ser usadas, especialmente a medida que las elecciones burguesas se acercan. Este es un momento en que las masas están abiertas a escuchar a la política. La izquierda real, la izquierda anticapitalista revolucionaria, puede no ser decisiva en la arena electoral, dada la actual relación de fuerzas. Algunos socialdemócratas, sin embargo, se postulan como candidatos del Partido Demócrata.Es posible que el papel de la izquierda se lleve a cabo mejor mediante una campaña de manifestaciones y propaganda. En algunos estados, o concursos locales más probables, las fuerzas revolucionarias pueden participar en las elecciones sobre una base revolucionaria con fines de propaganda, así como para obtener representación.La propaganda y la agitación durante la campaña actual deben elaborarse con sensibilidad. Deben tener en cuenta los sentimientos anti Trump de los indocumentados que han sufrido medidas fascistas en las fronteras, incluida la separación de las familias de sus hijos. Estas medidas fascistas no se limitan a las fronteras, sino que las lleva a cabo ICE en comunidades de inmigrantes y en lugares de trabajo en todo el país.Esta propaganda debe tener en cuenta la ira en las ciudades y comunidades negras de todo el país contra la policía y el apoyo abierto de Trump para la brutalidad policial y el racismo confederado.Debe reconocer que hay cerca de un millón de destinatarios de DACA (acción diferida para las llegadas de niños) que tienen la amenaza de la deportación colgando sobre sus cabezas. Además, cientos de miles, incluyendo a haitianos, hondureños, salvadoreños, nicaragüenses y otros cuyo Estatus de Protección Temporal ha sido levantado, están esperando la deportación.Teniendo esto en cuenta, se puede diseñar una propaganda anticapitalista y pro-socialista que no solo condena a Trump, sino que también muestra que la salvación no radica en el Partido Demócrata, un partido cuyo liderazgo está inextricablemente ligado a intereses corporativos y militares.El socialismo gana popularidad Hay mucha discusión y publicidad sobre la creciente popularidad del término “socialismo”. Desde la campaña de Bernie Sanders en el 2016, el término se ha vuelto respetable, particularmente a medida que el capitalismo decae y trae sufrimiento y gran desigualdad a las masas. El término “socialista” recibió un impulso adicional cuando Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, una activista puertorriqueña, una aliada de Sanders y miembro de los Socialistas Democráticos de América, ganó una primaria contra un entrometido miembro del Partido Demócrata, Joe Crowley, que estaba en línea a ser nombrado presidente de la Cámara después de Nancy Pelosi. Ocasio-Cortez representará un distrito que se extiende por el Bronx y Queens.Mientras su victoria primaria ha inspirado un gran entusiasmo entre los progresistas, también ha creado ilusiones entre muchos jóvenes, especialmente de izquierda, que están en el camino hacia hacerse cargo del Partido Demócrata y presentar un programa para erradicar la desigualdad, ganar atención médica universal, viviendas asequibles, incluso la propiedad estatal de industrias, etc. Estas ilusiones deben ser tratadas con argumentos marxistas, y no deben desdeñarse despectivamente. Por ejemplo, el presidente más progresista del siglo 20, Franklin Roosevelt, sofocó el movimiento independentista en Puerto Rico en la masacre de Ponce de 1934. Roosevelt llevó al imperialismo estadounidense a la Segunda Guerra Mundial, no inicialmente contra los nazis sino contra el imperialismo japonés, y justificó el internamiento de japoneses en los Estados Unidos.Mientras que Roosevelt es bien recordado ahora por el New Deal, que concedió algunos derechos a la clase trabajadora empobrecida en ese momento, en preparación para la guerra, Roosevelt rompió una huelga por los trabajadores la naves aéreas en la costa oeste, hizo alianzas con Dixiecrats del sur, permitió que la segregación permaneciera en su lugar, incluso en el ejército, etc. ¡Y este fue el presidente más progresista del Partido Demócrata! Se enfureció contra los “realistas económicos” pero cumplió sus órdenes en el Pacífico y más tarde en Europa. Antes de entrar en la Segunda Guerra Mundial, dijo: “Sus muchachos no serán enviados a guerras en el extranjero”, hasta que los intereses imperialistas de Estados Unidos sean desafiados.Solo la lucha ganará¿Cómo ganó la clase trabajadora las concesiones de la administración Roosevelt? El New Deal no fue un regalo otorgado desde arriba. Se ganó a partir de manifestaciones de los desempleados en las principales ciudades; marchas de hambre; huelgas generales municipales en San Francisco, Minneapolis y Toledo en 1936; las huelgas de brazos caídos en Akron y Cleveland, que culminaron en la huelga de brazos caídos de Flint ese mismo año, lo que condujo a la organización de United Auto Workers, el Congreso de Organizaciones Industriales y la organización masiva de la clase obrera industrial.Esta fue la fuerza que condujo a la Administración de Progreso del Trabajo, la Seguridad Social, el seguro de desempleo, el derecho de huelga y de organizar sindicatos, y muchas otras ganancias asociadas con el New Deal.Lo mismo es cierto para la Ley de Derechos Civiles, el Acta de Derechos de Voto y otras ventajas legislativas, incluida la decisión Roe v. Wade del Tribunal Supremo y las que confirman los derechos de lesbianas y homosexuales. Fueron ganados primero en las calles del sangriento Sur y luego por rebeliones masivas y marchas en las ciudades del norte.Los socialistas que tratan de obtener ganancias al afianzarse en el sistema electoral y el Partido Demócrata necesitan saber que los grandes pasos hacia adelante han venido de la lucha de clases: la organización militante de los trabajadores y las rebeliones de las comunidades oprimidas.A la larga, solo la lucha de masas puede traer progreso social, y solo la revolución puede traer el socialismo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Corn Maturity Hampers Field Demonstrations at Farm Progress Show

first_img SHARE By Gary Truitt – Aug 21, 2013 Corn Maturity Hampers Field Demonstrations at Farm Progress Show Record-breaking Crowds AnticipatedForty acres of corn located north of the exhibit field will be chopped off prior to the show. This area will then be used for overflow parking and tiling demonstrations. Due to anticipated record crowds, Farm Progress Show organizers are anticipating the need for additional parking. Tiling demonstrations, organized by the Illinois Land Improvement Contractor’s Association, will also take place in this area. For a schedule of when tiling demonstrations will take place, check with the Information Booths on site. Previous articlePurdue Economist: Realistic Renewable Fuel Standard AttainableNext articleIndiana Tomato Harvest Underway Gary Truitt A cool and wet spring that delayed planting, followed by a cool summer, has forced the Farm Progress Show to cancel the field demonstrations normally held during the show. The 60th annual Farm Progress Show will take place Aug. 27, 28 and 29 in Decatur, Ill. “Despite the best efforts of our host farmers, field demonstration corn planting was delayed due to the wet/cold spring; most of the corn was planted on May 15,” said Matt Jungmann, Farm Progress national events manager. “Had temperatures through June and July been average to above average, we would have had no problem harvesting corn in normal moisture ranges. Decatur is almost 200 heat units behind normal. According to WAND, a local television station, this summer is running an average of 11.4 degrees below normal and 17 inches ahead on rainfall.” SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Corn Maturity Hampers Field Demonstrations at Farm Progress Show Facebook Twitter Equipment Runway ShowTo satisfy all the field demonstration enthusiasts, a Runway Show will feature equipment from the field demonstrations.

New anti-terrorism law takes Egypt into Orwellian territory

Even in countries where freedom of information is highly restricted, laws rarely suppress pluralism so blatantly. Egypt is sinking ever deeper into a terrible despotism that not only wants to control information and detain journalists but also put them under even more pressure than during the Mubarak era.”Published in the government gazette, the new law provides for fines of 200,000 to 500,000 Egyptian pounds (23,000 to 57,000 euros) for anyone disseminating “false” information about bombings or other operations by armed groups. A journalist who, for example, gave a bombing death toll at variance with the government’s, could be convicted of a criminal offence.Ever since Field Marshall Sisi seized power, the authorities have been using the fight against terrorism as grounds for systematically persecuting journalists who do not toe the official line.With at least 15 journalists currently detained just for doing their job, Egypt is ranked 158th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Michelle Byrne, Union of Students.ACADEMIC qualifications that include an apprenticeship module are not getting enough support at a time when Institutes of Technology are floundering financially, members of Limerick City and County Council were told.Councillors were briefed by student leaders, Michelle Byrne of the Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) students’ union and Philip Desmond of the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) on the dilemma facing thousands of third level students in the city.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up They were told that students and their families are struggling with a wide variety of issues, including accommodation and increasing registration fees.Mr Desmond said that unaffordable rents and a lack of accommodation are some of the major issues faced by students.“I’ve had students in my office who did not know where to turn when they did not qualify for grants – students from Donegal who had to pull out with only a month left in their third year because they couldn’t afford accommodation.“Third level education is a right, it’s not a privilege,” he said.The student representatives said there has been a 363 per cent increase in student contributions between 2007 and 2014, with that contribution now standing at €3,000.“There has been 20.4 per cent decrease in higher education funding between 2004 and 2013 and now ten out of the country’s 14 Institutes of Technology are in serious financial difficulty,” Ms Byrne said.The presentation also alluded to Ireland having the second highest third level fees in Europe.The student representatives told the meeting that they are in favour of the German funding model which sees third level education publicly funded and a greater emphasis on dual apprenticeships.Ms Byrne said that the state should be looking to corporations, who benefit from the high level of qualifications they can access in the workforce to part-fund education.“We need to involve corporations who are benefiting from these graduates’ training. Graduates mean fewer people on social welfare and higher returns to the exchequer,” she said.Among the demands of USI are a decrease of €250 in student contribution fees.“We want to see it gradually rolled back so that it is affordable for the state and beneficial to the students,” Ms Byrne said.Members agreed they would support a motion suggested by USI and calling for better third level supports if it is brought before them.Visit the Limerick Post Education section to read similar stories.

Exposed: the Union hacks haunted by their history

first_imgA presidential candidate in today’s Oxford Union elections was alleged to have brought the society into disrepute, with a potential speaker slamming him for “financial carelessness and duplicity”.Daniel Wilkinson, presidential candidate for the ‘Progress’ slate, found himself under fire following the invite of Professor Judith Buchanan. She claims he informed her that a debate she had been confirmed to speak on had been cancelled when it had, in fact, not.Wilkinson himself spoke in the debate, taking her potential slot. Buchanan went on to complain about Wilkinson’s behaviour to both the Union and his college.The society was later forced to pay out £202.90 on her pre-booked travel expenses.When approached by Cherwell, Wilkinson said that there was a miscommunication between Buchanan’s PA and himself, hence the confusion, and that a panel of the returning officer and their assistants had found that he had not brought disrepute to the Union.He added: “For the record, I was always in favour of reimbursement and honesty with the speaker, but as you may know the power to authorise such a decision resides only with the President. I informed the speaker, as instructed, that there was no longer a place for her in the debate; this had the unfortunate consequence that she misunderstood, believed me to have lied, and was therefore frustrated.”“I acted in accordance with my duties and received the brunt of the speaker’s anger for doing so, and to imply that my actions were autonomous and internally aimed at causing a situation such as this with a potential speaker is a fundamental misunderstanding of the facts.”Cherwell can also reveal that a candidate running on the ‘Refresh’ slate, Musty Kamal, has twice faced allegations of electoral malpractice while running in student societies. In the Union’s Michaelmas elections, Kamal was found guilty of electoral malpractice and stripped of his position on the Secretary’s Committee.Kamal – who received the most votes in the election – was found to have breached Rule 33(a)(i) by making an “illicit statement” – one that is “untrue or misleading” and is intended to influence the course of the election.A spokesperson confirmed to Cherwell that the statement in question was Kamal’s claim he was running as an “independent” candidate. Kamal told Cherwell: “I think it is important to remember that in their first term of Oxford not everyone is familiar with the Union rules and, to my mind, I misidentified the definition of the word ‘independent’.“As such, my naivety led me to believe that my manifesto could incorporate the word. Nevertheless, I have learnt from my technical mistake and if elected look forward to creating a more engaged and inclusive union.”In addition to this, Kamal was embroiled in further scandal while standing for election as general secretary at the London School of Economics (LSE) student union. In a story making the front page of LSE student newspaper The Beaver, Kamal is accused of breaking electoral rules by beginning his campaign before the official start date.When approached by Cherwell, Kamal did not address the allegations from his time at LSE.last_img read more
