The political show-down between Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg and David Cameron in the UK's recent election could all have been avoided if only Blossom Grant had enrolled to vote.

Like many UK citizens, Blossom received a letter from the East Sussex Council reminding her that she was currently not enrolled to vote and needed to do so.

Unfortunately, Blossom didn't get around to doing so - probably due to the fact she is a pig.

According to Orange News, a Land Registry error resulted in the letter being mailed out to Blossom at her modest sty, known as Pig Flats.

Blossom's 73-year-old owner Pauline Grant was quite astounded that Blossom would receive a letter, let alone one informing her of her voting rights.

"I am not sure who Blossom would have voted for, but at a guess, I would say the Green Party. They would probably look after her needs best," said Grant.

"She is a very clever animal but I think politics might be a bit complicated for her."

Despite the mix-up being pointed out to the Council, Blossom and her owner went down to the polling booths anyway.

"I [took Blossom] as a sort of piggy protest for ... the amount of paperwork she is expected to do," said Grant.

Folklaw has only one comment: only in Britain.
