1. If you won a million pounds, what would you buy ? I'd pay off your mortgage, Uncle M's mortgage, give half of the remainder to charity and invest the rest.

2. How long does it take to get to America? Depends on your method. Anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks.

3. What does Mummy always say to you? Many things, some of them useful, most of them a mixture of nostalgia and sarcasm

4. What job would you like to do when you're big? I'm taller than you. I'm going to be a forensic psychologist though if that's what you meant

5. What is the capital of England? E if you're hilarious, Londinium if you're whimsical

6. Where do babies come from ? Depends. Some come from mutually agreed unions, some from poor choices, some through medical intervention. But all require sperm and a healthy egg. Or do you mean like souls? Because that's bullshit

7. At what age do you become an adult? 18 in most ways but arguably anywhere between 17 and 25

8. If you could change one rule your family has, what would it be? <shrug> It's a democracy, we already decide rules together. We're fine

9. If you could be a superhero, what superpower would you have ? The ability to end this interview

10. What would you do to save the planet? It's a collective endeavour, it's up to governments and business to make necessary changes and for people to act instead of being passive

11. If you could eat one thing all the time, what would it be? Nothing. That's dull. But I do like salmon

12. How much does it cost to buy a house? Again, it's dependent on many things. 90k or millions or somewhere in the middle

13. Why do you think we should be nice to other people? We shouldn't. We aren't morally obliged to do anything of the sort. We should be appropriate. Not everybody needs or deserves you being nice to them

14. What does love mean ? It means different things to different people but I suppose in most cases, it's valuing somebody above yourself or despite yourself <shrug>

15. What are you scared of? Not a lot. The possibility of war maybe

16. What is the most important thing to remember? Right now? That nothing lasts forever which is a good and a bad thing

17. Is there a question you have for me? Can we get a Giant African Land Snail please?

She's just turned 13...
