Circle West is getting politically educated!.... thanks to a great presentation by Helene, who has been working in the field of making the U.K. Parliament more accessible. We had our usual bring and share delicious food - and for me this was 2 evenings in a row of bring and share, as we had the Farmshare Board meeting the day before ( I'm now a bundle of health and wellbeing!).
Over the veg soup we worked out how Early Day Motions work, suggested we should have a local authority version of the Select Committee, and alerted each other to the fact we now have (since February 2011), a young new member of the House of Lords whose specialism is 'climate change'. Her name is Briony Worthington, and here is a link. to what a Guardian writer thought of her. Hearing her speak at a conference in January gave me confidence that we do have a genuine voice in the House of Lords and we should be using her in whatever way we can. Chris Hull
