Susan Boyle was spotted in her home town earlier, having just voted in the general election. Although she wouldn't reveal who she'd voted for, it is believed to have been the 'Red Scarf Loonie Party'. The local candidate was yesterday despatched to her house for a spot of last minute campaigning.
"I spent a good hour and a half convincing her that Red Scarf is the one and only party for her. No others are even worth acknowledging," the candidate grinned.
The Red Scarf Loonie Party's policies include the distribution of free red scarves, compulsory bible readings, lemonade on tap, and the banning of purple scarves.
Candidates from other parties weren't happy. "They appear to have infiltrated our party headquarters and run off back to their base with all sorts of inaccurate stories!" complained the candidate for the 'SuBo Fans Without a Wealthy Husband Party'.
The Loonies are expecting around 60,000 votes, but in reality it's likely to be more like 1200.
