Election 2010: Parliamentary waffle house

29 April 2010

A Parliamentary Waffle house has been opened by Bompass & Parr near Carnaby Street, London, at which each item corresponds to one of the three main political parties. Orders placed feed into a swingometer that gauges the mood of the country as it votes with its mouths.

Visitors are also asked to don special hats to demonstrate their allegiance, while a soap box and memo wall are provided for customers to air their views.

Diners are be kept up to speed with non-stop political coverage and entertained with regular special events. Last week it held a launch night in which guests supped on a glass of Prescott Punch while watching the live TV debate before taking part in the party v party waffle-eating competition run by Hot Breath Karaoke.

Before this week's TV debate a debate on marmite was held with cabinet members from both the Love Marmite party and Hate Marmite party speaking at an Oxford Union-style debate complete with marmite waffles, bloody marmites and Marmitinis.
