Parliament Week at the Impact Theatre

An Invitation From Impact Theatre

Impact Theatre are an excellent organisation based in Perival, and are dedicated to promoting a positive image of disability, developing communication and building self-confidence, through participation in performing and creative arts. When they invited me to their Parliament Week event (along with candidates from all other political parties) it was an opportunity I could not pass up.

Engaged and Ready for Dialogue

I am glad to say I found a group of people who were very engaged and ready for constructive dialogue. They were very kind to me, and when the time came for me to give a talk we had a conversation on subjects that ranged from how democracy works, the differences between the political parties, the current situation in Britain, relations between America and Britain, and of course the environment!

Tough Questions!

I must admit that of the many questions I was asked, the one that stumped me the most was “who has the biggest mouth, Donald Trump or Boris Johnson”! After umming and ahing for a few seconds I decided “I wish both of them would think before they speak” which went down well enough. But overall this was a fantastic experience.

Green Shoots!

I am glad to say my talk was positively received and I am told there may be some “green shoots” at the Impact Theatre! But whatever their choices when it comes to voting, I hope that the people of Impact Theatre remain as interested and engaged as I found them.
