This morning Abbey College Cambridge were delighted to welcome Heidi Allen, Member of Parliament for South Cambridgeshire. Mrs Allen was invited to the college by our A Level Government and Politics students.
Mrs Allen talked about her background in business and science, and how she found herself getting involved in politics after seeing the Tottenham Riots in 2011. Mrs Allen also touched upon the daily demands of a politicians life in Westminster and in her South Cambridge constituency, before spending time answering questions from the floor, ranging from how Parliament works and the effects of Brexit, to feminism in politics, her won greatest achievements and even a question on Margaret Thatcher’s diet!
Our students were inspired by the event and we’d like to thank Mrs Allen for taking time out of her busy schedule to come and visit us today.
Abbey College Cambridge is part of the Abbey DLD Group of Colleges.
