In what was thought to be a reliable referendum on the Blair decade, when 30 million voters were eligible to pass a long awaited verdict on the "Blahcade", poll watchers revealed that only five Scots and one Welshman had voted.
Upon further investigation the five Scotsmen turned out to be a lost golfing party who had been wandering in the fog for days: "Wi saw a lyte awf in the distance and naturrrally wi headed right ready for 't. Instead of a safe harbor with haggis and sum liquid refreshment it turned oout ta be a polling place. So like good Scots we vooted!"
Reporters found that the lone Welsh lady to find her way to the voting place was celebrating Dylan Thomas' anniversary of his first communion and thought the polling place said pub.
British election expert, Conor Kilt Kenney interpreted the slim turnout as a mandate from the British people in favor of Blair and his ten years of Labor pains."Silence is assent and since nobody sent Tony's ass packing then I guess he's here to stay for another tenner!"
