... yes, yes, I know its all very serious and a crucial time for our country but, just for a moment, lets forget the current election campaigns. This is about YOU! Since its all hypothetical, you dont have to explain how you're going to budget nor even how you'd enforce your policies (tho' credit for those who do). You can have 3 policy points. Tell me why you chose them. Feel free to be as creative and absurd as you wish (you can even be serious if you really must) &, if you want to give your political party a name - thats good too. So, - my "Purple Poo Pixie" party would: 1. Issue wings and those cute litttle pixie boots to everyone who was prepared to wear them in public....(because I want some & I would!) 2. Demand that rollmop herrings were packaged in non-tranparent containers and could only be consumed in solitude or with other consenting adults (because they are like soooo totally gross) ...(thats not my real voice) 3. Promote that all producers, contestants and viewers of reality TV should be herded up, shorn and their fleeces sold to help pay off the national debt. (I really dont think I need to explain that one) What's your party going to do?

On behalf of the "Ice cream should be a right, not a privilege party", I want to let you know that we believe ice cream should be available to all Americans free of charge. Our party does not discriminate on the basis of flavor, texture, chunkiness or color. Thank you.

I'm here to speak on behalf of the "Honk if you love Spandex Party" Our foundation principles and all subsequent actions stem from the following key policies: 1. The act of "honking" must be provided with the true recognition it deserves. All measures must be taken to make this a reality. Even cross-dressing to the point of arrest is acceptable if it draws attention to the cause. 2. Spandex in any form must be cheered whenever it is encountered. Fluorescent spandex must also receive a standing ovation. 3. All human beings were created as free individuals and may run with scissors if they so desire. To further validate and promote this policy, all sworn Party Members shall play fun and games until such time as someone loses an eye. When this occurs, it will be acknowledged as a sign. Dirty underwear will then be worn and Members will stand in front of a moving bus. The coup de grace will be the Party President rolling a moss covered stone down a hill. Honking aplenty will signal the completion of each stage and spandex is of course worn by all involved on at least one part of the body. The future is bright! HONK!

You have conjured up the most disturbing image of Gordon Brown in fluorescent spandex.... it could even rival the sight of the rollmop herrings... I think the dirty underwear clause may need a re-think.

My "We should have done this sooner Party" 1. Hand out free baseball caps to teenagers. If they put the cap on backwards they shall be shot immediately. 2. Make it law that coconut can only be used in non-food items. (That way I never have to read ingredients on a packet of biscuits again. I'm not allergic I just hate the stuff.) 3. Ban the colour pink on clothing and toys for girls. I'm just SICK of it.

Interesting policies... I'm not sure i could condone the mass shooting of teenagers... but I have no great need for coconut in my food and pink just because its for a girl is wrong
