Visit to the Willink School, Burghfield

I spoke to the Sixth Form at the Willink as their local MP today. I gave them a brief description of the job of an MP, how elections are held, governments are formed, issues are raised and policies changed. I also talked in a non partisan way about how schools are financed and the relationship between a School and the government on funding and educational performance.
There were questions about diversity in Parliament, gay marriage, and the attitudes of the Polish government.
