Thank you to everyone who took part this week! It was another bumper set of entries and we're so delighted you feel so passionately about making a change.
Stars were awarded to ideas and suggestions that were particularly original, thoughtful, and well-explained with developed reasons.
Our Primary winner is memorable_raccoon of New Horizons Children's Academy, who spoke up for respecting politicians more - which is something that often goes unsaid in discussions about them. They also saw the other side of the coin, and justified a conclusion with a reason about being 'role models' ourselves. They also highlighted how another BNC user inspired their idea - so special mention to beloved_koala, too!
Our Secondary winner is motivated_economics of Highdown School. They gave a well well-evidenced case for new rules in the House of Commons to make debates more fair, and had clearly done research to see what was currently in place. They added a link too to show where they found their information.
Most of you will have already had some sessions on our latest Issue, Politicians and Power. You may have read about the role of an MP, how elections work, and how some politicians have let their behaviour slip in recent years.
This week's competition asks:
If you could make one change to politics in the UK, what would it be and why?
You might want to think about bringing in a new rule that politicians must obey
You might want to think about the way elections happen
You might want to think about how MPs behave in Parliament (see how it has got out of hand before)
....or any other kind of change you think would be good for our political system.
I would like to suggest that.... because...
The competition closes at 10.30am on Friday 31st January. Good luck!
