Gave this stamp a bit of a makeover as I thought the original looked fugly. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Also, as of this update, I'm now doing an A-Level in Government & Politics at college.
OH GOD IT'S THE ATTACK OF THE TEXTWALL AND THE UGLY BACKGROUND!!!
Now that's outta the way, I have a story to tell you guys...
Once upon a time, a young girl named Laura was given the chance to go on Work Experience. But this wasn't any old Work Experience placement. No, this was a placement to work in the local constituency office for her local MP! As the politics-interested young teenager (No doubt Britain's General Election played a part in it), she quickly decided to take on the offer. But a bonus was included in her placement... she was given a free trip to London to see the Houses of Parliament and to watch Prime Minister's Question Time! This only made Laura even more excited.
Months passed... then finally, the day of the free trip came. After riding a one-hour train and the London Underground, she found herself (with her mother in tow), in Westminster. Laura had never felt more excited in her life.
A tour guide appeared and greeted them, taking them around Parliament and letting the mother-daughter duo visit the Houses of Commons and Lords. Afterwards, Laura grew hungry, so the tour guide took them to a restaurant and let them meet their local MP I.e. Laura's boss for the week.
At 11.45, they left the restaurant and went to the Public Gallery in the House of Commons, to watch Prime Minister's Question Time. Of course, they were early, so they had to watch other politicians. Laura was getting bored, until suddenly, she spotted Prime Minister David Cameron walking down the Commons room, with Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband following behind him. Her mother pointed it out before Laura had fallen asleep, certainly bringing her excitement levels over 9000.
Laura watched her country's Prime Minister with fascination, as she thought he was a great speaker (depsite the fact that she was usually against the Tories). Of course, the highlight was how the debates could get rowdy. She thought it was a more civilised version of school debates. She laughed when the Government took the piss out of the Opposition.
Sadly, the debate ended. Laura walked out happily, knowing that she had something to remember for the rest of her life.
...If you haven't guessed yet, "Laura" is me, which is also my first name (and if you haven't guessed already by my username). All of the events in the story were true.
Sometimes politics is interesting, maybe even funny. OK, maybe some of the subjects they talk about is boring...
