“A Labour shadow minister was lost for words after a primary school pupil told him he supported Ukip because he wanted to get ‘all the foreigners out the country’.
Tristram Hunt, the shadow education secretary, was filmed asking the year six pupil from Derby who he would vote for in next month’s election if he could.
Video of the exchange shows the Labour MP was stunned by the statement, which a UKIP spokesman claimed shows the schoolboy had been ‘drinking in propaganda’ from the party’s rivals.
The mother of the 10-year-old has said she has now sat down her son and explained ‘it isn’t about being foreign’. But she added: ‘I do personally support an Australian points system.'”
Do you get the feeling these aren’t the replies he was hoping to hear? :O
