Those breakfasts again

Stephen Pollard reminds me of one particular gem from the debate on Free School Breakfasts on Tuesday. I think that I was so open-mouthed when Christine Chapman said it that I involuntarily eradicated the comment from my mind. The comment was:

"People have talked dismissively of gimmicks but these gimmicks are going down well in my constituency."

Presumably, space hoppers, Tracy Island and the Wombles have gone down well in her constituency in the past as well. But are they legitimate instruments of public policy?
