Debaters at Downing Street

Ms Forsyth: BDA's debaters were invited on a tour of the Houses of Parliament and Downing Street by George Osborne after impressing him at a debate in which his son was competing.

We had a very interesting tour by a member of George Osborne's office and felt like VIPs when we walked past the queue of people outside Downing Street and went straight in!

The students learnt a lot during the trip and made the most of the expert on hand who in an email to me afterwards said: "I thoroughly enjoyed it myself, particularly their questions!"
