An historic event today – the United Kingdom Youth Parliament sits today in the House of Commons chamber. I remember the debate and vote in the House as to whether this should be allowed or not – and it was hotly debated. I voted for – obviously. I am firstly Youth Spokesperson for the Liberal Democrats – but also on the Board of Directors of the Youth Parliament itself. I think it can only be a good thing.
Sadly – I can’t actually be there due to consituency commitments – but I have no doubt they will all remember this day for the rest of their lives. And if it raises aspiration – then it will on that alone – have achieved its purpose.
