“So, Paul,” the man said. “There are five cups before you. One labelled Julian Huppert (LD), one labelled Daniel Zeichner (LAB), one labelled Rupert Read (GREEN), one labelled Chamali Fernando (Conservative), one labelled Patrick O’Flynn (UKIP). Four of the cups contain deadly poison. One contains wine. Which one will you drink?”
“Come, you’re a clever man, you know about politics, you care about things, surely you know which one you should drink?”
I stared at the cups, eyes widening. The man smiled, wickedly.
“Come on, Paul. You were at school with Patrick. Surely you’ll vote for your old school friend?”
I reached out, and took the cup labelled UKIP – and immediately threw it into the grass. “That’s a trap,” I said to the man. “No-one with a brain or a heart would ever vote UKIP. And I have a brain and a heart. At least I think so.”
