Politics Conference

On Monday 11th March St Clement Danes Politics students travelled up to London to attend the A Level Politics Conference. They joined over 1000 students from around the country at the Methodist Central Hall in Westminster for a packed day of speeches from politicians and Human Rights activists. The line-up exposed the students to a broad range of political views including Wes Streeting (Labour Shadow Cabinet), Richard Tice (Reform Party), Jacob Rees-Mogg (Conservative MP), Zack Polanski (Green Party Deputy Leader) and Sarah Olney (Lib Dem MP). The speakers provoked a wide range of reactions, from effusive cheering to loud ‘booing’, from the audience during the Question and Answer sessions at the end of their speeches but the stand out speaker for the audience seemed to be Zack Polanski who was in full campaign mode and spoke with passion. The last session was an open Question and Answer session with Rory Steward and Alastair Campbell who were recording for their podcast ‘The Rest is Politics’. It was a really enjoyable day and the students all agreed it was worth doing again.
