former MP discusses life as a politician with local Brownies
former MP Tessa Munt has taken part in a unique question and answer
session with young local voters of the future.
was invited to be the special guest at a Burnham-On-Sea Brownies
meeting this week, held at the town's Methodist Church, as part
of an activity theme on 'inspirational women'.
the questions asked was one about the age of voting, which she feels
should be changed. "It's very unfair that young people can't
vote until they're 18 - I'd like it reduced to 16," she said.
what her future, she said: "I have done what I set out to do
in my life in becoming an MP and a county councillor, but I woud
very much like to serve as an MP again in the future."
- who was MP from 2010 to 2015 - said afterwards she'd been impressed
at the range of questions from the youngsters and hoped she'd help
to inspire some to consider getting involved in politics.
