Lower Sixth take on the General Election at Politics conference
6 Dec 2013
The Lower Sixth politics class attended a conference at Methodist Central Hall in London on Monday 2 December on the subject of the 2015 General Election: Policies and Prospects.
Prestigious speakers including John Bercow, Douglas Carswell, Simon Hughes, David Blunkett, Neil Hamilton, Tony Benn and Andrew Mitchell addressed an audience of 2000 students, and took questions. The speakers were grilled in a fashion reminiscent of Prime Minister’s Question Time by the students on issues such as the introduction of tuition fees and Britain’s relationship with the European Union.
