Sometimes its very easy to see politicians as one dimensional characters.
For example, Cheryl Gillan, Secretary of State for Wales, has a hugely responsible job. She deals with serious matters on a daily basis.
So it was a revelation to see her today recording a children’s story for youngsters totally enjoying herself and immersed in bringing characters to life.
She was reading a story by Jaqueline Wilson that involved using different accents for the different parts.
Fun! But it served the serious aim of recording a children’s adventure for a free audio library service that has 19,000 members with disabilities, such as dyslexia and poor eyesight.The service is part of a social action scheme that takes place at the Conservative conference every year.
