Press Packers meet David Cameron

Chris and Becky

Press Packers Becky and Chris have made a whistle-stop tour of Britain, interviewing some of the movers and shakers in the world of politics.

This week, the Conservative Party is holding a big meeting in Bournemouth and our Press Packers interviewed the man who leads it - David Cameron.

Becky tells us what happened on their latest assignment.

"We drove to Bournemouth and then we went to get our passes to get into the conference. That was quite exciting.

We checked into the hotel and then we went to the conference centre and then the beach to do some filming. It was sunny, but very windy. They filmed us running out of the waves, which was fun.


Our original interview time was changed, so we had to wait until the next day to meet David. I felt nervous as I went to sleep, and I was trying to get my questions right.

We got up at 6.30am and had breakfast, then we went to meet him. I was excited and nervous.

When we met him, I was a bit disappointed that he didn't have a chat with our parents, but then we went to do the interview. I was anxious to see what he was going to say.


We gave him a few tests. We asked him to work out a text message and he did quite well. Chris asked him about taxes and how this will affect us when we are older.

He seemed calm in the interview and we were too. It went quite well.

It's been amazing doing these interviews. Now I know that I would like to be a journalist when I am older. But I've also got a new interest in politics.


It's important for young people to be interested in politics because it affects our future.

Doing these reports has been a once in a lifetime experience. I didn't want it to end!"
