Spike in Drink Tampering After The Saint Publishes “How To Guide”

Is "our" student newspaper really doing enough to protect us? 

St Andrews University Union has come under attack from the Saint for allegedly not doing enough to protect students on a night out. 

St Andrews University Union has come under attack from the Saint for allegedly not doing enough to protect students on a night out. 

In the Union, despite the semi-darkness and pervasive sheen of sweat, there is an underlying obligation towards the safety of students. Providing us with a “safe environment” to socialise, study and be merry is their top priority. With many initiatives to keep students safe (such as their Zero Tolerance Policy and provision of drink-stoppers) potential ne’er-do-wellers struggle to find an outlet for their nefarious deeds. Luckily, The Saint has them covered.

In their most recent edition, The Saint provides students with a handy “how-to” guide on all things drink spiking; offering new and unique ways for the perpetrators to capture their audience. “Tired of spiking just one drink? Spike the whole bar!” reads the tagline of the article in question.

Detailing the one-of-a-kind method of spiking the water jugs in the union triggered an unprecedented rise in drink spiking. The Union refused to comment, however, sources from within explain that this is probably due to the fact that the whole staff are currently unconscious.

Frankly, the Salvator believes that more should be done to combat this unexpected rise in drink tampering.
