I think it's great when a young child shows such innocence. Good on her for thinking she could make a difference by donating the £1 which she got from the tooth fairy (though it looks like she might have kept a couple of £'s back).

It's a pity that kids grow up.

I understand she got a £2 bill from the post office for the wrong postage, a £25 admin charge for £25 from HMRC and a £150 fine for not getting her self assessment in on time.

. . . and, by the look of it, a slap on the forehead from her Mum for being such a 'cocky little madam'.

I think it's great when socialists shows such innocence. Good on her for thinking she could make a difference by donating the £1 which she got from the tooth fairy (though it looks like she might have kept a couple of £'s back).

It's a pity that socialists grow up and vote Tory.
