Guido brought home some political finger puppets* last night. This morning Miss Fawkes (5) and Ms Fawkes (2¾) grabbed them off the breakfast table, ripping open the packets to give dad the benefit of their political analysis.
First, and mindful that Mrs Fawkes was watching with a wary look in her eye, Guido tried to exercise some fatherly objectivity and give the girls some background:-
“The one with the red tie is Gordon Brown, he is the Prime Minister, the one with the blue tie is David Cameron, he wants to be Prime Minister. Nick Clegg has a yellow tie and he wants to decide who is Prime Minister.”
Miss Fawkes immediately and perceptively interrupted “They are all boys?”, “Yes” replied dad. Miss & Ms Fawkes chorused “Yukk”. With that they discarded the politicians and went back to their porridge.
So there you have it, The feminist Fawkes girls say “none of the above”…
