When I heard that a high-profile person was due to visit one of my local establishment, I was ecstatic. It turned out that I was meeting MP David Lammy (MP for Tottenham) Meeting MP David Lammy was a privilege because we don’t always get the chance to meet an MP.
Do you remember when the Olympic torch reached our boroughs or districts in 2012 and how we felt excited to see the torch. Some of us rallied around friends, family and visitors just to see it. Well, this is exactly how I felt when I heard that an MP was going to be present at an unknown location one day in December.
Luckily, I was able to be there. He was a guest speaker at local establishment in South London and shared many words of wisdom. Although it was one of those brief meetings, you know, like the ones where numerous people queue up to meet a famous personality and hardly get the chance to have a full discussion with them because everyone present wanted to meet him. Oh well, I guess I just have to wait for another one of these rare appearances when hopefully I can have a proper meeting with MP David Lammy. http://www.davidlammy.co.uk/
It must have been an interesting meeting! What did you discuss with him?
Well, I was lucky enough to get a photo taken but not lucky enough to have a chat. There was a large crowd in place at the time. Hopefully I’ll meet him again someday.
