UK general election
Reply with quote

We are in the run up to a General Election here in the UK, and it looks like it will be an interesting one. Odds are for another hung parliament but it is difficult to see at the moment which combination of parties might prevail.
My older boys are starting to ask how I will vote, and what each party means.
I'm very happy to discuss politics with them, but can anyone recommend good resources / websites which could be helpful? I know how I will vote but want to be objective so they can decide for themselves. I find it is difficult to explain each party's main policies fairly!
They are 8 and 9yrs.
