Local students from Fortismere school on Friday got the chance to question Liberal Democrat MP Lynne Featherstone and the other parliamentary candidates on policy, in a special Q&A session led by the school’s head teacher, Aydin Onac.
The students quizzed the candidates on a number of issues, ranging from local school funding to the Middle East crisis and economic recovery.
Lynne Featherstone MP comments:
“It’s been such an enjoyable and stimulating afternoon. I’m so impressed by the Fortismere students. They clearly have an impressive knowledge of political issues, as well as a hunger to learn more and understand the world we live in.
“With that kind of insight and interest, I’m sure they will go far in life, so keep it up guys!”
