One of the problems with the system is that it assumes that all students' unions and their officers already have detailed policy development mechanisms in their unions. In fact whilst some do, some do not- shutting out many from NUS' processes. Most of the policies submitted actually come from NUS political groups, sent round to unions to submit in the form of model motions to be rubber stamped and submitted locally- hardly democratic. And it also means that many things submitted by students' unions fall off the agenda because each item is debated formally and separately.
