But before you start imagining a 16-year-old William Hague addressing the Conservative party conference - stop. I mean politics on a small scale. When my six-year-old daughter was elected a school councillor I was enormously proud. I'm not as clued-up about politics as I should be or would like to be, so the school council became a handy microcosm of the big, bad world.
