Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves Returns to HGABR

Our former student, Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves, recently faced a 'grilling' from HGABR sixth formers when she returned to our school for a visit.

Her visit was reported in the Evening Standard - see an extract below or read the full article.

Ly15 12 10 21 Rachel Reeves“What is Labour’s biggest weakness?” asks one student, getting straight to the point. “Losing,” says Reeves. “We look inwards and spend loads of time arguing among ourselves. A tweet and an impassioned speech has never changed lives. You change lives by winning elections and forming governments.” The girls look impressed at her honesty.

Reeves is eloquent but approachable, in an ultramarine blue dress (“from M&S!”), and tells the girls to “ask me anything you like”. They oblige, with searing questions about the Prime Minister and Israel and Palestine.

She has gone back to school to show people like her that they too can be politicians, regardless of what their background is. “The way you change things is through politics,” she says. “We need Parliament to look like the rest of the country, it leads to better decisions. How can a group of white men who went to university make the decisions for all people?”

A big thank you to Rachel from everyone at HGABR for taking the time to visit us!
