My Experience with ADHD: Diagnosed at 21

As a twenty one year old female on antidepressants, I have spent over my half my life being analysed by various health professionals, trying to establish what it was that made living a normal life that little bit harder for me than it did for my peers. To name a few, the suggestions have included Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality...

Why you should vote for the Liberal Democrats

The Liberal Democrats have a very clear message: we are stronger together.  That is, we are pro-EU and pro-UK. The sad reality is that we are in an era of constitutional chaos and it is distracting us from the real issues facing our world, country and local communities. That is why the Liberal Democrat manifesto is radical, progressive, pragmatic...

Why you should vote for the Conservative Party

When you get out of bed and make your way down to the polling stations on Thursday morning, be aware of the importance of your vote. This is without a doubt the most significant election in living memory; never before have the stakes been so high. At the 2015 general election, I may have preferred the Conservatives to Labour but...

Why you should vote for the Scottish National Party

We are St Andrews Students for Independence (STAUSFI) and, unfortunately, we’re one of the lesser-known political societies on campus. If you’ve been anywhere near the Union or the library in the last three weeks, you’ll know that we’re working desperately to change that. We are a cross-party group, made up of a wide range of political beliefs, nationalities and...

Why you should vote for the Labour Party

After nine and a half years of Conservative government we’re facing a climate crisis, cuts that continue to cripple our NHS and vital public services, and a massive increase in inequality. Rough sleeping has more than doubled since 2010, child poverty is reaching record levels, and food bank usage is at an all time high. It has taken the...

Of paupers and men

As St Andrews rose to be the number two university in the UK, proving to me that I made the best choice after being officially taking my place as an Oxbridge reject back in 2016, I decided to look back at my time here and think about all the people I’ve met during my time in these hallowed halls....

Brexit Society President claims Facebook post incited violence and terrorism

Josh Samuels, President of the newly-founded St Andrews Brexit Society, has written to Principal Sally Mapstone asking her to act upon the “barrage of anti-Brexit insults, abuse and threats of violence” that he says he and his team have received since the Society was launched. Sending his letter on the 17th July, Mr Samuels wrote to Principal Mapstone that...

Finally! England crack the ODI enigma to reach cricketing nirvana

The 9th March 2015 will be a date forever inextricably seared into my memory. I was in my A-level history class that morning, with our teacher Mr Skeaping (coincidentally a fanatical English cricket fan) educating us as to the Treaty of Cateau-Cambresis, signed in 1559 and widely regarded as a hugely embarrassing footnote in the annals of English history....

Editorial: We’re concerned about drugs. Isn’t the Students’ Association?

Earlier today Chloe Hill, the president of the Students' Association, sent an email to the student body about the drugs survey The Saint is currently running. The Saint is proudly independent of the Association, which of course is entitled to its views. However, the email has raised some concerns that we would like to address. The main point of Ms...

Editorial: Issue 173

And Now His Watch Is Ended. As well as being the title of this week’s terrific episode of Game of Thrones (come on, there was always going to be a Thrones reference in one of these editorials), this is the last print edition overseen by the current editorial team. We’ve come a long way, but there is still much to be...
