Back at Mid Kent College
I was invited back to Mid Kent College to meet with students studying public services and it was a real joy. Firstly it was my first visit to the new campus on Medway Road and my what a huge difference to the old Horsted site. Secondly the students were very interesting in what they had to say about politics and the issues that they were concerned about. And finally I was being shadowed by a very bright local girl who is at the University of East Anglia and thinking about doing her dissertation on young people's interest and engagement in politics. All in all it was a very fulfilling 90 minutes and has somewhat restored my faith in youth interest in politics.
