Of course children are exposed to religion and there seems no way of
stopping that!  So, best discuss their exposure to politics, perhaps.
But there's no way of stopping that either really, so the question is
how to handle the inevitable exposure.

But these are extremes.  The massive "Centre" is something the child
will meet anyway as "taken for granted" politics.  That's worrying
