UK Parliament


Hello everyone,

As we have been reviewing the the procedures of the UK Parliament in class recently, I thought I would share some information on the topic here on the blog. 

Firstly, on this link you can find a short summary about Question Time in the House of Commons and other aspects relating to the British political system:

Here is an introductory video to the UK Houses of Parliament, from the work of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, to Parliament's history, art and architecture: 



You can find out more about Parliament by watching other clips in this series through this link:

The second video which I have found has highlights from Friday the 30th of October 2009, when the UK Youth Parliament debated a range of issues in the House of Commons Chamber. The event marked the first time that anyone other than MPs had been permitted to use the Chamber, and the topics discussed included the right to free university education, youth crime, transport and lowering of the voting age to 16. 



The last video which I would like to share is one showing some funny moments from political debates over the years, including clips of David Cameron, Gordon Brown and a funny moment involving Nadhim Zahawi's  musical tie! 



Enjoy the reading week and see you in class!
