Me and my BFF - Chris Huhne

Cat, from our youth delegation, had the chance to meet UK Energy and CLimate Change Secretary, Chris Huhne. Here, she describes her experience.

 

Not many people can say they have had the privilege of breathing the same air as a political leader and a politician who seems to be a bit of a flavour of the month.
