Speak out and be heard

Excellent meeting arranged by the local youth council last night and lots of questions to the panel (three politicians a doctor and a policeman - chaired by a PE teacher). There was a noticeable group at the back who I quickly identified as having Conservative views but I was struggling to work out which of the local schools they were from.
A couple of them came up to me afterwards and very nicely apologised for asking me so many questions. When I asked them which school they were from they admitted that they were young Conservatives and had tried to pack the meeting a bit.
Well at least it generated some lively debate.
