Houses of Parliament Education Visits Officer invites Lords to ‘speed date’ underage teenagers

MARVELLOUS timing. The Education Visits Officer at the Houses of Parliament, one Dawn Hatch, has sent a letter to Lords inviting them to speed date teenagers.

Dear Lord ███████

Political Speed Dating Event – Thursday 22nd November

As part of Parliament Week 2012 we are holding a ‘Political Speed Dating’ event where a group of 13-16 year olds will have the rare opportunity to chat in small groups with current Parliamentarians.

The session will run at 10.30am to 11.45am in the Macmillan Room in Portcullis House, and it would be wonderful for the students if you were available to participate. We are inviting Members of both Houses from all parties and the event will involve up to 10 Members. We have extended the invitation to several members and I hope that you are able to participate.

Please contact me if I can provide any further information about the session, I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Dawn Hatch

Bookies Paddy Power , never ones to miss a bit of PR, have projected the face of Conservative Leader David Cameron onto the Houses of Parliament and began paying out on a Conservative win.

In other news, the Financial Times has come out in support of the Conservatives. The only thing that can stop the Tories is tactical voting. The Daily Mirror calls for it. Ed Balls wants it. So, we’re all agreed – vote David Cameron and get rid of Gordon Brown…
