On Thursday 12th December, as the population of Britain went to the polls, Frederick Bremer conducted our own mock election. The parties represented in the poll were the Green Party, the Brexit Party, Labour, the Conservatives, and the Liberal Democrats. While there were no individual candidates, every class discussed the key parts of the parties’ manifesto. The voting was conducted as in an official election, with people’s names crossed off as they were given a ballot paper, and put an “X” next to the party they wanted to vote for. Both students and staff voted.
The result was declared on Friday morning, and in contrast to the official general election, the Labour party won by the significant majority. The mock election gave the students an
experience of voting in a polling station, and they learned more about politics and the parties’ manifestos.
