Norfolk MP tells children his job is ‘never boring’
North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb told a classroom of children at Erpingham Primary School that his job was “never boring”.
Class three pupils, who are studying Ancient Greece and democracy, quizzed Mr Lamb on his role in Parliament and about the job in general.
He said he was inspired to become an MP by Nelson Mandela and the way he united people, and said he was lucky to have a job that allowed him to help others.
One student, Alfie, said: “He didn’t look like I expected. He said that MPs argue in Parliament and they can behave worse than children.”
Student Ella added: “It was interesting to learn what’s involved in being an MP. It’s important to obey the law so you don’t get arrested.”
Mr Lamb said: “It was fantastic talking about democracy with class three - I hope to see some of them on the front benches in future years.”
