We had the pleasure of welcoming The Rt Hon David Evennett MP to the University last Friday as part of one of our speaker evenings. David started by explaining the role of an MP, giving some stories from his time as a whip. This gave an insight for those of us who are passionate about politics and are often curious as to what goes on behind the scenes at Westminster.
We then had the pleasure of hearing about David’s career, from becoming a new MP during the Thatcher era until his time spent more recently as BorisJohnson’s whip. Most importantly, we then got to hear about what it was like to work with the Iron Lady herself.
Thanks to Rt Hon David Evennett MP for giving up his time to talk to our students, we hope to see more of his great work in Parliament soon.
Our next event is Association Drinks on Thursday 1st February, we hope to see you there.
