PENNYWELL POLITICAL PIGS
The British general election is almost here. At Pennywell Farm in the south of England they are holding pig races, in which pigs represent the various political leaders. They are anxious to see who wins each race, which consists of a course of 150 yards with four jumps. Pigs are named after political party leaders - David Hameron (David Cameron), Ed Swilliband (Ed Milliband), Nigel Forage (Nigel Farrage) and Pork Clegg (Nick Clegg). Chivalrously, no pig is named after Nichola Sturgeon, the Scottish Nationalist leader. A fifth pig stands in for other parties.
