George Galloway inspires pupils during 'eye opening' visit to St Albans Girls School
Politician and broadcaster George Galloway tweeted he was very pleased to be visiting "the beautiful Hertfordshire" yesterday morning as he made his way to St Albans Girls School.
Mr Galloway gave a talk to A Level students about the role of politics and the media and details of his career as an MP.
The visit was organised by the head of Sociology at the school, Mrs Davies.
When asked if he aspired to become the Mayor of London, he replied there was a possibility he would run as mayor.
He also went on to share his concerns about the growing existence of elitism in Government and surprised students by informing them that more than half of cabinet members are millionaires and had also been to Eton.
Year 12 Business studies student Megan Wancio said: "It was eye opening.
"I found myself agreeing with a lot of the things he had to say. He put forward very interesting opinions and his beliefs were cleverly backed up with convincing evidence.
"I am now more aware of how the media can have a misleading affect our perception of some members of Parliament.
"I thought Mr Galloway really showed he cared about what he was talking about."
