Visit from Angela Richardson, MP

All Sixth Form Politics students were honoured to welcome Angela Richardson, MP for Guildford, to GHS for a Q&A. Angela gave us an insight into the life of an MP over the past few turbulent years, including the challenges which faced Parliament when legislating and implementing Covid lockdown restrictions, and throughout the Conservative Party’s leadership contest. She answered questions which the students had prepared on topical issues such as immigration control, House of Lords reform and the Human Rights Act, as well as openly discussing the conflict of interest faced by all MPs when balancing the views of constituents with adopting the Party line, and the personal sacrifices which must be made by public figures.
