Home Ed Protest at Parliament

We had a great day at the protest rally! I managed to have a few words with Lord Lucas, and then Michael and I had a very good meeting with our MP. We were very fortunate to pass on a copy of the Right to Reply document created by Claire B. and her dedicated helpers.

I have to say all the children at the rally were positive and upbeat. I don’t think Parliament has ever had that many children, not in school uniforms, at one time. The kids did us all proud today!

I’d like to thank Claire B. and all of the other organizers and many helpers for a great gathering.

I’ll leave you with photos for now, but will be back with a proper blog tomorrow! (Michael was our main photographer for a change!)

    Looks fantastic. Well done all you lovely people. Shame we couldn’t be there. BWs Elaine

  8. Sarah says:

    Yes, well done (and that top photo IS excellent!!). Really good to have so many children involved, I’m sure it is something they will remember for ever, and remember the ‘why it was worth fighting for’, whatever happens.

  9. Dorothy says:

    Beautiful photos, Elizabeth!

  10. Carlotta says:

    Lovely photos.

    Graham B is doing well knowing all that lot, lol. Apart from Lord Lucas, I didn’t recognise anyone, though I do personally know at least 100 other HEors who object to the review’s proposals!

  11. Tracey says:

    Great photos, a huge Well Done to everyone 🙂

  12. Loubeeloo says:

    Lovely photo’s Elizabeth & many thanks for being there & representing those of us who were unable to make it! xx

    Great photos!!! Thank you for speaking out for all of us who couldn’t make it. Let’s hope they listen. What a great lesson in democracy and government for the children.

  14. Elizabeth says:

    Thanks everyone! We really did have a good time, though we hate that we have to do it! I was a bit like a kid in a candy store–I love political stuff and being in Parliament was fantastic, I’ve always been fascinated by the history of it all. To me seeing some of the MP’s was better than going to a rock-concert! Yes–I’m odd!

    Thank you so much to you and all who went on our behalf. Excellent photos – I really, really hope the MPs are listening.
