Quote of the day
"Peppa Pig is a well known fan of Sure Start children's centres but, in the interests of avoiding any controversy or misunderstanding, we have agreed she should not attend."
Labour's campaign for re-election takes another hit as Peppa Pig withdraws from appearing at the launch of their manifesto for families.

In other politics news...
... Paxo meets his match in the form of Plaid Cymru's Senior Economic Advisor Eurfyl ap Gwilym.
... at least our politicians haven't descended to quite such childish levels as their Ukrainian counterparts.
