When it comes to the crunch, Gordon Brown is top of the polls according to a new food survey.
As the election campaign enters its final full week, bespoke caterers Pickled Walnut has come up with a rather novel way of predicting the outcome using some unusual culinary delights.
The chefs have been out across Liverpool handing out samples of ‘Gordon Brownies’, ‘David Camembert’ and ‘Nick Scotch-Cleggs’ to bewildered passers-by.
And it seems Liverpool certainly has a taste for the Labour leader with 37% of those approached reaching for the chocolate treats.
Lib Deb leader Nick Clegg came in a close second with 35%, while David Cameron walked away with 28% of the votes.
Managing director Jamie Anderson said: “There’s lots of speculation around at the moment about which party is top of the polls and so we thought we’d find our own fresh way of predicting who’ll be celebrating come May 6th.
“Some of the people we surveyed may have just been reaching for their favourite food rather than their political preference, but it was clear there was definitely a link between the two with many people refusing to take items if they disagreed with the leaders behind the product.”
Polls across the country have revealed conflicting predictions to who will win the UK General Election 2010, with many now becoming increasingly concerned about the potential impact of a hung Parliament.
“It seems nobody knows which way the polls will go next week, so this seems as good a method as any to predict the result” added Jamie.
