I had an enjoyable chat recently with students from St John Fisher, after receiving an invite from the school’s head teacher to take part in a question and answers session.
I was pleasantly impressed with the students knowledge of politics and the present nation issues and policies, of the major parties.
From the response that I received directly afterwards and subsequently on-line, it seems that I made a pretty positive impact?
One of the nice comments I received afterwards was this one:
“My niece was there. She and her friends were well impressed with you. She said your performance persuaded some of them to vote Lib-Dems.
It’s a shame a few more schools in the city do not undertake a similar exercise in order to encourage interest amongst their students?
