Question from my 13 year old niece.
“How do they know who won the election? Is it like on X Factor?”
Let’s see now.
"Nick Griffin.....Crawl back under that stone where you came from."
“Nick Clegg...... It’s not you.” (Cue for Nick to wipe away the tears and tell us what an amazing journey it's been.)
“Gordon Brown...... It could be you.”
“Posh Boy...... God help us but it could be you.”
“All will be revealed after this commercial break.....”
Now that we have an election campaign entirely based upon how well the party leaders do in the televised debates it's probably only a matter of time before the results will be announced that way.
Update 30th April 2010: Seems I am not alone on this one.
