I was watching Question time on BBC Two. The question was "Are the British public becoming disallusioned with politics and politicians?" (or something similar).
So - to me - a short answer is "yes".
But, one politician, and to my shame (or hers) I have no idea who she was or even which party she represented (they are all the same anyway) brightly disagreed. "Oh no" she exclaimed. "Definitely not! When I go into schools the pupils are very interested and ask about Green Issues, Climate Change and (cant remember the last issue). At which point, I LOLLED!
Yup - I was a teacher too.
