General Election hustings got underway at Aldenham School

11 Jun 2024
Emma with the other Hertsmere General Election candidates at Aldenham School hustings.

Questions from students ranged from the benefits of national service; the introduction of votes for 16 year olds; how to improve lives for young people; the pros and cons of VAT on private school fees; and whether truth and integrity is important in politics. On the latter I reminded students of the growing number of disgraced Tory MPs who have breached the ministerial code of conduct, partygate and the consequences of Liz Truss's disastrous mini-budget that have wrecked the lives of so many of us.  

My thanks go to the staff at Aldenham school for organising and hosting today's valuable debate.
