Guide to the British election on May 7 (”Politico”, USA)

On Thursday, British voters go to the polls to elect a new prime minister. Most Americans do not know that in Britain are elections, and even more so they do not know who the candidates are and what they represent. Fortunately, the American illustrator Rebecca Hendin, who lives in Britain, and British writer Alex Massie created a very handy guide to the current crop of British contenders for the premiership, transferring the essence of the British election in handy for Americans terminological language.

British tabloid notorious how cruelly they cover the activities of politicians in Britain. It is unlikely that this is true, when they get all the fun. America can, and does not pay much attention to the elections taking place on the other side of the pond, but that does not mean that we have no right to make fun of the candidates. Rebecca drew pictures and created the American political equivalents for each of British candidates. She, being a proud American, and made some good points about the candidates (although Alex would very much like to write on your own the lion’s share by attacks against Ed Miliband). Alex, who is closely following the British political scene, presented an expert analysis of the British race.
