Parliament? I'd want MPs in the Tower of London

Published 05/05/2015

In two days' time, the people of the United Kingdom go to the polls to vote for their next Member of Parliament.

Whether or not the next prime minister will hold enough seats to form a government, or a coalition with another party, is neither here nor there.

In Northern Ireland, you have the Never on a Sunday DUP in one corner, with Sinn Fein and Gerry Kelly in the other seeking election in North Belfast. On the other hand, the SDLP are threatening not to work with Labour if Ed Miliband (heaven forbid) wins the keys to Number 10.

Many hope to be on the Number 148 to the Houses of Parliament. I would prefer them on the Number 15, which terminates at the Tower of London, where they could all remain - permanently.
