ST MATTHEW’S ACADEMY - ST ANDREW’S DAY DEBATE
I was delighted to visit St Matthew’s Academy inSaltcoats yesterday to participate in their St Andrew’s Debate 2018 as part of their Catholic Citizenship Day. I had the opportunity to debate and discuss the use of foodbanks, mental health, Brexit, Syrian refugees and what inspired me to become politically active, in a hustings with the Scottish Green Party and the Tory Party. At the end, a mock election was held with the Tories trailing in third place with 27 votes, the Greens on 57 and the Scottish National Party (SNP) triumphant with 110 votes. The Labour Party failed to appear.
