Bullying is kids' election issue

Children fighting at school
If kids were in charge of the election campaign the things the politicians would be talking about would be very different, according to a survey.

If you could pick what was on the agenda before the election it would be animal cruelty and bullying.

The survey of kids aged nine to 13 also found out that Wayne Rooney is the most popular choice as prime minister.

Mind you, with 12% of the votes, fictional character Harry Potter was the next choice, ahead of Tony Blair.

Two of the biggest issues of the election campaign so far, immigration and the economy, are the things you're least interested in.

And you don't seem that bothered about which party is in charge of the country, as 15% of the children surveyed couldn't recognise any of the leaders of Conservative, Labour or Liberal Democrats political parties.

The survey was paid for by the Cartoon Network TV channel.
