As adults, we are used to watching political debates become rather passionate.

We are used to hearing people make their voices heard during Question Time and talking with fellow politicians to get their point across.

But fortunately, some of us still think that this type of behavior is unacceptable.

"I am very passionate about the fact that girls and young people can be heard in our country, which Gai mentioned in his 90th speech to Parliament and I think I need to bring a question to your attention.

"I was so excited to be attending the time of questions for the first time in my history, but I was very disappointed and embarrassed by the behavior of the majority of parliamentarians. "

Ella then explained that during her visit, she had seen about six deputies get fired from the room and that these people "gave a very bad example to young people".

She continued, "I think they should set the best example by adopting more respectful behavior, listening to each other, letting themselves talk and expressing their ideas and not shouting at each other. because it does not help. "

The girl admitted that she no longer thought that school children should visit Parliament if that was how people behaved, but MPs should rather come to her school to see how they run their student parliament. .

"We respect others, listen when they speak, make positive suggestions to their ideas and strive to respect the values ​​of our school:" Everyone Matters "."
