Mock Election 2015

May 11, 2015

Whilst the rest of the nation was gearing up for what promised to be one of the closest elections in recent history, St Paul’s was preparing for its own mock election. It began with the Leaders’ Debate in the Great Hall, where school candidates were subjected to demanding questions from girls and each other. After a week of campaigning, during which posters covered the school and the candidates gave speeches in assembly, the whole school voted on 7 May. The school’s results were remarkably similar to those of the actual election: a Conservative majority, with Labour dwindling and the Liberal Democrats losing out to smaller parties, such as the Greens. The results were:

Conservatives 333
Labour 180
Green 70
UKIP 41
Lib Dems 38
SNP 17
