European elections: reverting to type

Several wannabe political parties were handing out leaflets outside the Tube this morning, and it’s amazing how you could tell which party they belonged to just by looking at them.

The short, thickset white guy with tatoos – that’d be BNP, then. The slightly loopy-looking faux-upper-crust woman in the suit – obviously UKIP. The hairy earth mother in sandals who probably knits her own muesli – that’s the Green.

There was also one slim young woman in shorts and T shirt whose party affiliation wasn’t clear… until I realised she was handing out membership offers for Gymbox.
