God bless teenagers

Today has been a busy constituency day and the highlight has to have been this morning, which I spent in Samuel Whitbread Community College with a large group of bright and gifted pupils.

 

Thank the Lord for teenagers. Given the absolute nonsense which filled the front page of the Daily Telegraph, I was a bit nervous walking into a full auditorium. But they were angels, bless them every one.

 

Thought provoking questions dominated the meeting and they focused mainly on education. It’s fair to say that they were all worried about the future and the cuts presently being imposed upon university education.

 

The pupils were and I have to say it because it is true, the most polite, mature and intelligent group I have ever spoken to.

 

It was easy to see why. The teacher, Mr Price, was one of those inspirational, caring teachers you stumble across every now and then. Each word he spoke to every child was loaded with praise and encouragement.

 

When you are facing the continual onslaught on a daily basis, it fills you full of renewed determination when you spend a morning like I did and you do realise, it’s not about the media, it’s about the job, the people and the fairy footsteps of change you achieve for individuals on a daily basis. That is what makes being an MP worth all the front pages of fiction they can throw at you.
