A picture of diversity

I am sitting here, turkey done and now I have to make everything else but while everyone else is out of the house I am able to skip the cartoons on cable and watch a little CSPAN.
To my delight, and I trust to the delight of many, the UK Youth Parliament is convened for debate in the UK House of Commons debating the war in Afghanistan.

It IS a rainbow of diversity, which England particularly has become over the decades, and the breadth and intellect of these young people is absolutely breathtaking.
