Contrary to what you may have seen on Facebook, the news, or Game of Thrones, many people are actually pretty bored with politics. A near continuous stream of elections, referendums, polls and debates have left the average voter as bored and cynical as a fifteen-year-old.
I wasn’t going anywhere with that. Fifteen year olds are kind of bored and cynical as a rule.
Anyway, with just a week to go until polling day, all the political parties and UKIP are scrambling for ways to make Politics great again. And one of the ways that has been suggested is to really emphasise the shared U.K. Political Universe aspect. While some may argue that the U.K. Political Universe is in actual fact our Universe and therefore cannot be cleverly connected in the manner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, DC Cinematic Universe, The Universal Monster Universe, The Lego Movie Universe, or oh God what have we become, it hasn’t stopped our finest minds (and Me!) trying to give U.K politics it’s own interesting and exciting linked narrative.
Here is a sneak peek of the timeline of official events that will lead to U.K Election 3: The Snap Gauntlet.
