At the invitation of Caroline Shirley, who teaches at Kimpton Primary School, Sir George and Bruce Parker -former political editor of BBC South - went back to school.

Bruce Parker, who lives at Appleshaw, hosted a Question and Answer Session aimed at Sir George. Kimpton pupils were reinforced by pupils from Appleshaw School


"It was like old times, being at the receiving end of questions from Bruce, who helped the children frame their questions correctly. What impressed me was the number of questions about petty crime and vandalism - and about the shortage of popular activities for young children to engage in. They had clearly thought a lot about the questions before the session began, and agreed what issues to raise."

"The good news for me was the sharp increase since last year in the number of children interested in going into politics.


"At the end of our session, quite a few children were interested in a career in television, and a career in politics. Some of the questions were quite sharp - would I ever vote against my Party, for example."


"The children had looked at both our websites and done a lot of homework. They were well-prepared and well-behaved - better dare I say than some MP's!"
