Thanks to the debates I have been allowed to stay up late on Thursday nights. I am never allowed to stay up that late during term time. I settle down with popcorn and this isn't even an outing to the cinema. The Times today states that children everywhere are being allowed to stay up to watch the debates. I have been given validation so I am going to push the boat out and ask for chocolate too.
On a serious note - I worry that Nick Clegg is going to be asked about the Child Trust Fund. I don't have a vested financial interest in this because I was born in 1999. However, I see the benefit in having money redistributed to setting up smaller class sizes. Children still do benefit.

David Cameron has stolen my thunder! I came home from school and discovered that he has been mixing colours. He said that yellow and red make Brown. That's what I do, I am the child here and i wished that i had come up with that line after years of playing with colours. After eating ten chocolates in a row (Easter leftovers) in a sulk, I then realised that red and yellow make ORANGE!!! I have been handing out orange leaflets every Saturday for the last month. Orange and yellow are the colour of sunrise and that is exactly what the Liberal Democrats are doing, RISING.
Today at school one of my classmates brought in the Times. The front page said that David Cameron saw Nick Clegg as more of a threat than Gordon Brown. Everybody boo'ed Cameron. Nick Clegg is really climbing to sucess! Later,in the playground,two boys had an argument over who was Nick Clegg's biggest fan. Nobody won because the fight had to be broken up by a teacher.

With one week left till the election my school is becoming more exciting than it has been all year. Today, my class mates and I were watching a short clip on the election. Normally children make fun of me for supporting the Liberal Democrats but today all my classmates cheered at the sight of Nick and boo'ed David Cameron and Gordon Brown. Later, they asked me loads of questions on Nick Clegg such as 'Is yellow his favourite colour?'. If that is the way my classmates show their political interests I'm not complaining.

This story will show how much the party's profile has been raised in recent weeks. I had a stuffing party at my house and someone picked up my school bag. I had to explain to my teacher the following day what had happened and he stopped growing when I mentioned 'Liberal Democrats'. Instead, he became interested in what had happened at the party. My bag was returned 24 hours later.
