Camden School for Girls declares

NO prizes for guessing which party emerged as the victors when Camden School for Girls in Camden Town staged a mock general election on polling day last week. The result suggests reducing the voting age to 16 here would simply lead to Labour piling on more votes in the real thing, as students from council leader Georgia Gould’s old school gave her party a landslide win in the assembly hall.

Intriguingly enough, ten students at the famous school, whose alumni also includes Emma Thompson, Sarah Brown and Fiona Millar, cast their vote for UKIP, which amounted to nearly four percent of the vote. For larks? I don’t know, but it’s not a bad return given the party’s real candidate in Holborn and St Pancras, Giles Game, only managed just over one percent of the vote.
