In a shock move, Tony Blair has announced the biggest change to the electoral system since that sad day that women got the vote. Speaking from Downing Street our beloved Prime Minister said this.
"In the past decade we have noticed two very different trends. The number of people going out to vote has dramatically dropped, whilst the popularity of reality TV shows has increased at a exponential rate. In order to reduce voter apathy I have been in talks with Endemol productions, makers of Big Brother, in order to stage a new form of elections that will combine the excitement of reality TV with the tedium of national politics. It shall be called Political Big Brother. The leader of each of the main parties shall be stuck in the Big Brother house for a month. Each week they shall be given tasks that demonstrate leadership abilities and at the end of the month there shall be a telephone vote to decide who gets to govern."
The contestants are expected to include Tony Blair (Lab), Michael Howard (Con), Charles Kennedy (Lib), Jerry Addams (Sinn Fein),The Rev Dr Ian Paisley (UDP), Arthur Scargill (Socialist) Jade Goody and Craig.
