And Sheila's proud of her son - he's even on her election leaflets.

Although it's pretty unlikely that she will win the election.

Sheila will be fighting the incumbent Conservative MP Justine Greening, who has a majority of over 10,000 votes.

So you probably shouldn't expect to see The Kooks wandering around the House of Commons any time soon.
