The President of the Oxford Union has had a pretty bad few weeks after getting into a protracted legal dispute, that he billed to the august debating society, with the Oxford Tab. It emerged Benjamin Sullivan had lied about his involvement with a drinking society known as the “Banter Squadron” and the union withdrew his £1,200 legal war-chest. The Tab and the Times have the full story on the 21 year old History and Politics student at Christ Church.
The society, which boasts countless former Prime Ministers and politicians amongst its alumni, claim that they were only trying to protect their reputation by threatening to sue the scurrilous student rag. Guido can reveal that young Mr Sullivan’s woes have increased dramatically today though. Thames Valley Police have confirmed to Guido that a 21 year old male was arrested this morning in Oxford on suspicion of rape and attempted rape. Negative banter!
