Battlefront took over Parliament for the afternoon on an invitation from former First Minister of Scotland, Lord Jack McConnell.

Rymel, Hafsah and Joseph, Shereece, Hope and Abbie and Billy and Richard were given a tour of pretty much everything including the House of Lords and the main debating chamber.

Before the tour, everyone met up at Channel 4 HQ – where we masterminded our campaign plans and gave each other high-fives and the like.

The campaigns are really taking shape now, and Lord Jack thought they all sounded pretty world changing, which was nice...
