FIRST there was speed dating, catering for the nation's lonely hearts. Now the romance has been replaced with policies on prisons and policing as speed dating goes political. Jade Goody's racist outburst and the hanging of Saddam Hussein were two of the controversial topics politicians were grilled about during a political speed dating event, on Friday, at Sawtry Community College. It gave 17 Year 11 pupils the chance to pose questions to 10 Cambridgeshire politicians. Each student was given three minutes to question either a local councillor or MP before they moved on to their next interview. Citizenship teacher Emma Letman said she had organised the event to encourage better communication between political figures and youngsters.
