For Prospective Students JCR Noticeboard

A message from almost JCR President 2017/18


My name is Jamie Dborin – you’re probably wondering how I got here.

In the intense JCR presidential elections of 2018, following the untimely resignation of former president Barnaby Harrison, I ran on a campaign of hope, love, and loyalty that lead me to come a close second to the JCR president, Niall Macklin.

For all my loyal fans, who have been there from the very start. We’ve had our good times, and our bad. This is for you.

Although we fought hard and strong, I want you to respect the outcomes of this elections, for we must, at all costs, protect our democratic institutions.

I want to thank our IT Officer for this wonderful website. I want to thank Niall Macklin for the strong opposition that he posed throughout the campaign trail. 

May God bless the Junior Common Room of the JCR.

James Dborin
