Harry voted ‘green’ that day, what will young people decide next month?
He after all made a very restrained entry into the political arena – by rejecting the soup at a Tamworth Conservative Association annual dinner held at Drayton Manor (the former home of Tory moderniser and Victorian prime minister Sir Robert Peel) – aged just FOUR months.
But it is good to see newcomers to the election process taking an interest.
And so it proved as I manned a very busy stand at Walsall College for its Voter Registration event.
There was lots of enthusiasm and interesting conversations and hopefully some new voters as well.
It was great to see Justice Secretary Chris Grayling at the event too.
Mum Sarah admitted: “We weren’t thinking of bringing him to the event but unfortunately the baby sitter let us down right at the very last minute.”
Footnote: Young Harry slept through the soup and main course but roused himself for the speech by then Environment Secretary Owen Paterson. A ‘blue boy’ with a green conscience.
Footnote 2: If you are interested in being helped to get into apprenticeships and traineeships with real work experience, there is an ‘Employers Event’ at Walsall College on Wednesday April 29 at 4pm at WACC Beeches Rd, Leamore, WS3 1AG. Call 01922 663000 extn 3010 for more details
