I'm speaking in Westminster Abbey...

Well I've just heard that I'm one of 20 young people in the whole of the Uk going to westminster to speak and be consulted about child services and bereavement, on 6th of may I go over to speak, damn this is cool I will have a say in something... Out of the group that was asked for candidates four of us were chosen from our recent video project work, I was selected because I apparently have good ideas and am skilled at arguing points and expressing my self sensibly... Woot skills...

The whole thing is about improving child services around the UK and I've got to say it's about time... There are very few decent social workers and the system is pretty bad on the whole, minimizing the effect of decent social workers and the like, counsellors are soon going to be boning up on dealing with bereaved kids due to our video project along with teachers and if the funding goes through we may be doing another on helping friends or ourselves...

Any suggestions from the UK people here in following with

A friend in need is a friend indeed
Coping with it?

Wow, that's pretty tight
Perhaps you should temporary forget all of your humorous/numerous anecdotes of trouble making?

No I can work around them, believe it or not I can speak intelligently and think quickly when neccesary... hence I will be making my point... Whatever that may be, it all depends on format, we may have big discussions where the politicians sit in or we may have talks directly to the politicians, it's all fairly unknown to me so far...
May the luck of the Irish aid yeah ; )

Remind me to make sure you're flambeed by your own creations once in a while, just to keep you in check.
whereas the English would not just say "keep you in check", but keep you in check mate....LOL Ugh....that tasted awful....

It all depends on the accent, if they say mayte it's annoying whereas here in belfast it's just mate or sometimes meyt
Yes, but Check Mate is, in chess, ftw ;-)

I tried to ignore that, why bring it to the attention of me again, I know you have a pun for everything but sometimes the law of averages approach is wrong...
