Politics for the very young

2nd June 2006 at 01:00
I enjoyed the article on pupil politics in Scotland Plus (TESS, May 19).

However, there was one error regarding my paternity of Mhairi Britton - although I do have a daughter, her name is Catriona, and at 8 months old, even I would have to draw the line at letting her protest in the streets!

We Brittons are quite thin on the ground, so it was an understandable connection to make.
