On Monday 9th January, Year 12 politics students visited Parliament to find out about the United Kingdom’s sovereign legislature. The trip was somewhat disrupted by London Underground workers striking; this enabled the students to appreciate the impact that pressure group action can have on citizens’ lives and the political process. Due to tube closures, after a longish walk to Westminster, students took part in a tour of the Commons and Lords, before meeting Doncaster MP Rosie Winterton for a Q&A. After lunch in Trafalgar Square and a brief stop at The British Museum, the students managed to avoid all of the travel chaos and catch their return train on time.
