Should Daleks be allowed to live on Earth?

Another exciting week in Year 5 as we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Doctor to discuss whether Daleks should be allowed to live on Earth? He gave us some interesting information about his history with the exterminating extra terrestrials. Generally, we were just thankful he had the time to see us, which should be easy for a time travelling alien!
