    If that turns out to be Stella Creasy then so be it, but I'm voting for the local area rather than the figure heads.
    If my daughter ever voted Tory or UKIP I'd disown her.

    UKIP probably won't exist this time next year let alone when she is 18 - hold your fire till she starts dating an MK Dons fan!

    Hey, she's already a true blue so she won't be having any of that.

    At 5, she's probably already more educated than your average BNP supporter.

    Poor show, if of course true.

    People should have the right to vote the way they wish to and not feel pressurized by anyone either in or outside of the family. I would not feel the same way if my daughter voted Labour.

    I assume your comment is a little "tongue in cheek" though.

    Of course it is. I was born into a Labour voting house, and a dad who believed in the Unions so maybe I get my political affiliations from him, but we had quite a fractious relationship so you'd think I'd be a dyed in the wool Tory.

    MK Jnr can make up her own mind at 18, but I'll tell you one thing, I will make sure she votes in 2028.

    That's a different proposition. You can do so much to instill in your children that Labour/Tory/Lib Dem is the right way to go, but I'd never lay it on the line to my two of 1 and 4.

    When do you become politically aware? I remember at 7/8 being quite excited that we'd have a woman as PM as it was a new thing.

    According to Tangled and his 'horse shoe' theory, you are no different to your average BNP supporter.

    Unfortunately, I very rarely get the chance to buy The Guardian these days,though I do read it online practically every day and contribute to its running costs.

    I assume that doesn't extend to what team she supports...

Yet, Labour launch an attack using a TINY minority of oversized classes and claiming that the situation is getting worse,.......which it apparently isn't..............well, only in Wales, where Labour are in control! Their arguments were effectively and embarrassingly torn to pieces on the World at One, a short time ago. Verdict, Labour need to do better, one hell of a lot better. If this is the quality of their argument and debate, they will get the drubbing they deserve......pathetic, sorry
    Saw Labour's Shadow Education Minister on the Daily Politics earlier, unable to say what maximum class sizes would be under Labour.Oh well perhaps the answer will be in next week's manifesto.
