The run up to the election's war of words has been overtaken by the war of biscuits with each of the main parties hanging its hopes on the popularity of its chosen mid morning snack.
Labour, who were criticized by voters at the last election for not identifying an official party biscuit, have gone for the Digestive. Labour's snack spokesman, Arnold Cloth, said, in a press release, that "the digestive is a dependable biscuit, not too sweet or crumbly, and although not everyone's favourite biscuit, it's the only snack to lead us forward out of recession."
The Conservatives mocked the government's choice as "unambitious", while proposing that "the best biscuit for Britain's future has to be the gypsy cream. It is enjoyed equally by all, including the travelling community, and is a classless snack for a forward thinking Britain."
The Lib-Dems are ruing the day their party office chose the jaffa cake. "It's not even a biscuit!" claims the Department for Elevenses, "it is quite clearly a cake. It goes hard when stale and a biscuit goes soft."
Since this information was released the Lib-Dems have fallen 6 percentage points in the polls.
Main parties publish their general election biscuit manifestos.
