An extraordinary cucumber poll, conducted by the Hendrick’s gin, described the daily growth (or lack of it) of four Cucumis sativus as they were “absorbing” the party ideas, which influenced the British people on the National Election Day on May 6. The actions of the key political parties as well as ordinary citizens were “marked” with a little cucumber on the www.gineralelection.com website. Once the elections were over, the biggest cucumbers were used for producing the finest gin.
