“I would heartily endorse the reinstatement of having a Mancunion editor doing the role on a paid sabbatical basis.
“From personal experience, it would have been impossible to juggle such a role with one’s studies, particularly with the amount of work that was involved in dealing with advertising, printing and distribution.
“Having a full-time paid editor also made an enormous difference during the summer term when many of those involved in The Mancunion’s production are revising for exams and unavailable to help out in the normal way.
“I was quite shocked to learn that the post was no longer an executive position.
“When I was editor, it was a running joke that The Mancunion editor was the hardest-working member of the union executive, something that I gather continued in later years.”
– Ian King, Business Editor at The Times
