A visit to St Mary's Catholic High School
20/01/2011 14:50:00

I’d normally be in Westminster on a Thursday but I got to spend most of today in the constituency, starting with a visit to St Mary’s where I spent over an hour answering questions from Year 11 students.

They were obviously concerned about the cuts that the Government is having to make to reduce the deficit, particularly to EMA, and the increase in tuition fees, but there were also questions on obesity, promoting cycling, policing tactics, jobs for young people and the 2018 World Cup to name a few. All in all, one of the most inspiring things I have done since getting elected, completely at odds with the negative portrayal of young people in the media.

If you’d like me to visit your school, get in touch.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
