Westminster Day

This is an annual event which is actually organised by Lib Dem Youth and Students but aims to be non party partisan and attracts politicians from all parties.

Was talking about women (again! but it is my job) along with Eleanor Laing (Con) and Meg Munn (Lab). One of the audience mentioned that it was nice to attend a session where the politicians spent some of the time agreeing with each other. Can't disagree really.

Nice to see a group of young people from Stanbridge Earls school in the constituency (a school I have a bit of a soft spot for as there is nothing quite like it anywhere else in the area) and nice to be approached by some women afterwards who told me they had found my comments inspiring. It's really nice when people go out of their way to say something nice and positive because it is not the general way of the world.
