My first impression was, the room was grand but small. My eyes wandered around the room. There were seemingly 6" thick glass panels suspended from the beautiful old ceiling to shield us strangers from the MPs. There must have been some serious structural changes to allow these panels to hang from the ceiling. They looked heavy.
The proceedings were full of partisan politics; patting the prime minister on the back, requesting praise for helping constituents and of course attacking the ruling party by the other side. I almost felt as though I was in a Philadelphia City Council meeting. I guess all representative democratic politics are alike, no matter what level.
12:30 arrived quickly and so our date with David Cameron ended. I don't believe we made any impression on him. Mr. Cameron, my son and I departed the House of Commons, by different doors, together. We were on our way to meet my daughter outside Westminster Abbey. I can only assume David Cameron had something scheduled for the remainder of his day.
