Today election fever came to the small Scottish village of Balamory. On a visit to the area last week Gordon Brown noticed that all the houses in the village were painted different colours. On his return to London Mr Brown asked his campaign team to investigate.
Three officials were sent up to Scotland and began asking the residents who they would be voting for in the coming General Election and did their voting intentions reflected the colours of their houses.
First they went to the red house which was trading as a sweet shop and General store run by Suzy Sweet and Penny Pocket. When asked who she'd be voting for Suzy Sweet replied she wasn't sure yet but the VAT on sweets was a bad tax. Penny Pocket her wheelchair bound partner said she would like to see more help for the disabled.
The yellow house they visited next was owned by black fitness instructor Josie Jump would she be voting Liberal, she also wasn't sure but whoever promised to give more help to the ethnic community would get her vote.
At the Blue house they met Edie McCready a garage owner and local bus operator. When asked who'd she vote for said she hadn't decided yet but she hated the hike in fuel duty but liked the free bus passes for the over 60's. By now the team were getting tired and returned to the hotel still unsure who would be voting Tory in Balamory.
