You'll be pleased to know that there were no front bench resignations when our BB Company Section Boys joined in Parliament Week! Instead, they had a great evening, learning about British democracy.
The evening started with Alex Hunt, an ex-member of 2nd Alton BB, telling us about his work as an Alton Town Councillor, and how we had our representatives at Town, at District, at County and in Parliament. Next, we moved into The House of Commons (the church sanctuary, actually) where we held a debate about BB uniform, leading to a division and a result in favour of "The Ayes to the Right". We also learned about the Electoral Roll, and held our own mini-General Election; I can declare that in the Alton Methodist Constituency, Burgess P (The Progressive Party) was duly elected, narrowly beating Allan D (The Traditional Party) and that BB uniform will now be pink and yellow striped hoodies . . . believe that if you will!
