You know you’re obsessed with Brexit when your 3-year-old does a great John Bercow impression
As the Brexit deadlines come and go and come again, many of us have become completely obsessed with the coverage, sitting glued to every indicative vote and Marc Francois stare-off, before furiously tweeting jokes about Theresa May’s speeches. Assistant TV and film director, Adam Philpott, has obviously come under its spell, and the evidence is in his three-year-old son’s precocious talent.
An unexpected consequence of brexit, @mrjamesob @IanDunt @JimMFelton @SheRa_Marley , that my 3 yr old is able to do an impersonation of the speaker of the house thanks to the amount of parliamentary coverage that’s watched in our home. Thanks also for your continued analyses. pic.twitter.com/khZjOd1srt

Wonderful! Your son has Bercow's phrasing to a tee.

He isn’t the only little politico – there’s a switched-on generation on its way.
We were talking about a bone I dug up in the garden today and my three year old asked if it was “Mr Peter Bone” in a Bercow style.

My 4 year old son knows only two MPs. They are:
1. Bambos Charalambous and
2. Mr Peter Bone.

We should definitely let this lot sort out Brexit.
