David Cameron today took part in a question and answer session with Sixth Form students at the City of London School. The audience was made up of pupils from the City of London Corporation Family of Schools, including the City of London School itself; City of London School for Girls; City of London Freemen’s School; City of London Academy; Shoreditch Park; and City of London Academy, Islington. Mr Cameron talked to the pupils about life as Prime Minister and took Q&A, leading a wide-ranging discussion.
Mr Cameron started by detailing some of the challenges that come with the role of Prime Minister. These included the unpredictable nature of the job and the workload involved. He went to great lengths to praise the Civil Service for all that they do to support the government in tackling these challenges. The floor was then opened to questions and Mr Cameron was given a broad range of topics to address, including the Scottish referendum, the role of the monarchy, the referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union, anti-corruption and the role of governance, and immigration, to name but a few.
He concluded the session with words of encouragement for those planning to study Politics post A-Level and, potentially, pursue a political career in the future.
