GOSPORT MP Caroline Dinenage spoke about a day in the life of a politician when she visited a school.

The Tory MP took time out to hold a lively question and answer session at Meoncross School, in Burnt House Lane, Stubbington.

The tour of the school meant she has now visited 41 out of the 42 schools in her constituency.

Firing questions at Ms Dinenage were school councillors and AS-level politics students.

Year 10 student Connie Brocklebank said: ‘I was really interested in Ms Dinenage’s explanation that, as MP, she has no real power but did have some influence, which she could then use to help people.’

Jenny Clough, the recently-appointed headmistress, said: ‘It was a great opportunity for the children to get an insight into the reality of political life and to find out about local issues from a different perspective.

‘We are now very excited as Ms Dinenage has invited the children to see her in the Houses of Parliament, which will be an amazing opportunity for Meoncross’s budding politicians.’
