You know that thing when the prime minister is helping you with a reading lesson while on the campaign trail and it's all too much?

Lucy Howarth, 6, summed up how many of us already feel about the onslaught of preelection campaigning when the PM popped into Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Primary School near Bolton on Wednesday.

If it makes Cameron feel any better, the exact same thing happened to Australian PM Tony Abbott last year.

I think this may be the pic of the year.
