Fate of nation depends on whether it’s nice out

THOUSANDS of Briton are deciding whether or not democracy is worth getting rained on.

With polls predicting everything from a Conservative landslide to a hung parliament, Britain’s future is likely to swing on whether voters consider their civic duty important enough to go outside when it is wet. 

Labour supporter Tom Logan, 22, said: “A generation of politicians have betrayed young people in this country and only Jeremy Corbyn offers us hope for a better future.

“It’s going to rain though.”

Student Nikki Hollis said: “I passionately believe in a properly-funded NHS, but grey skies just make me lose all my energy.”

Hollis’s grandmother Maisie said: “I’ve got my parka, two umbrellas, and a thermos full of Bovril, so you can bet I’ll be voting.

“You can probably guess who I’ll be voting for.”
