It appears that Madame Tussauds can’t make up their minds whether to make a waxwork figure of Gordon Brown and have asked the public to vote on the matter.
As Tussauds explained
‘When Gordon Brown took over from Tony Blair last year, for the first time in a 150 year history, Madame Tussauds took the decision not to immediately create a figure of the current Prime Minister.
Instead we chose to wait for a General Election to confirm Gordon Brown’s status. Ten months later there is still no sign that Mr Brown intends to go to the polls – so Madame Tussauds is holding its own election to let YOU decide the question: Gordon Brown – in or out?
The ballots will be counted and on Wednesday 14th May the results released. Work will either proceed on Mr Brown’s figure or be put on hold until a General Election is called, whenever that might be’.
So if you felt robbed by not having the chance to participate in the non-election last year, you don’t live in Crewe and Nantwich or feel that 2010 won’t come soon enough please go and exercise you democratic duty here.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that shares in several mobile phone manufacturers are already climbing in anticipation of the result
