Cherished?

• So the children of the nation have been told that they are all cherished equally.

Since only 30pc of us voted, they may think that the rest of us don't always cherish them or don't cherish them equally, and that 40pc of the 30pc don't cherish them at all – even though the 40pc say that they voted "no" because they do cherish our children.

It will melt their heads trying to figure it out.
