Politically charged trip to The Supreme Court, House of Lords and House of Commons

Beckett, Maga, Jeremy, Ameen, Sam and Mia visited the Irish Embassy where they met Ambassador Adrien O’ Neil, Ambassador of Ireland to the United Kingdom, and his colleagues for a talk on the impact of Brexit and the possibility of a hard border. They also visited The Supreme Court to see it in action.

From there, they were lucky enough to attend high tea at the House of Lords, receiving a talk from Lord Cholmondeley, Lord Great Chamberlain of England, on Brexit from the Remain perspective and the importance of youth getting involved in politics.

They finished the day watching a debate on fuel tariffs in the House of Commons. Who knows? We may have inspired some future politicians!
