Simon Arnold has resigned from Executive.
He was elected unopposed in August last year to the position of House Committee Chairman.
Asked for the reasons which prompted his resignation, Mr. Arnold said: 'I have got steadily pissed off with the whole thing.
"It is terribly frustrating being expected to make decisions on behalf of 5000 students and getting no response from them.
"The only justification I could have for continuing would be the status and kudos, to quote Gerard Curry, associated with the job.
"The students aren't getting anything out of my continued presence on executive; I'm not (the cocktail parties for the year are finished) and a paid servant like Mr Boyd could do the job just as well."
Mr Arnold will be writing an article for the next issue of Salient outlining the reasons for his resignation.
