A chip off the old block

Sebastian Greenhalgh may still be a toddler but he's obviously following in his dad's shoes. Out on the streets protesting about the congestion charge last Saturday, Seb's photo then appeared in the Standard on Monday. Unfortunately it was used to illustrate a story about the supposed impact of the c charge on poorer families - shurely shome mishtake! Seb then adorned the front page of this week's Chronicle. Admittedly he is a bit more photogenic than his dad. But shouldn't he be at boarding school rather than protesting on the streets of Kensington? Perhaps he'll be smoking pot next.

I don't know who writes this blog, but it is in danger of degenerating into the gutter when you start attacking the children of elected politicians.

A bit off having a pop at someone's kid.

Why would any parent want to subject their child to publicity? It's Greenhalgh who's participating in gutter media tactics.
What about responsible parenting?

Perhaps Stephen Greenhalgh should have had thought about that before taking his kid on a demo, giving him a placard to carry and getting him to pose for photos for the press. Not something that David Cameron would do.

There is no disagreeing with hf conswatch - Surely any one who uses children in this manner is not blameless.

On the other hand, to be fair and balanced, quite a few people have done so - the last major incident in public view being Mr S. Hussein who used somebody else's children.
