She's the first past the post... office every morning.

In light of criticism of the current voting system in the UK, top officials from Number 10 have announced a new and improved way to attract voters of all generations.

The two candidates will be placed in seperate rooms for a thirty second voting speech (usually accompanied by overused melodies from either Snow Patrol or Take That). The candidates will then take part in Hill's notorious "Fight sketch". The winner will then gain an automatic 10% voting share.

The rest of the vote will come down to a new voting system installed over Xbox Live, in which voters simply have to select their favourite candidate online.

"I think it works very well. I love how we're trying to expand into unforeseen territories," described Mr. Roberts, a senior UN official. "Project Cortana will be a big hit, and it's a lot safer!"

The system was tested yesterday with Former PM's Blair and Brown. Harry Hill had this to add:

"My favourite bit was when they both sent their delegates to fight for them. Nothing describes a British man than sending a servant to do the dirty work for him!"
