Catching election fever, I asked Year 8 to listen out for any mention of the election in the media. A few days later I asked what they had seen or heard. Gareth's hand shot up. "That Tny Blair was on the telly last night, Sir."

"And what did he say, Gareth?" "He said English people didn't need any more Conservatories."
