As a wise man nearly said, A three-year old could understand this election. Quick, somebody find me a three-year old...

With excitement building as Debate Hour creeps ever closer, I conducted an in-depth Focus Group with a Three-Year Old* this afternoon:

Pollster: So who do you want to win the election?

TYO: No-one.

Pollster: But if you had to choose between the Blue Man, the Red Man or the Yellow Man whom would you pick?

TYO: None of them.

Pollster: Do you want anyone to be Prime Minister?

TYO: No.

And there you have it. Who needs ComRes or Yougov anyway?

*My niece and evidently, on the evidence collated thus far, a Minarchist.
