Blog: Burger gets the vote
Dean Best | 16 April 2008
The race to be London’s next mayor is heating up (the vote is on 1 May) and an upmarket burger chain has decided to get in the act.
Gourmet Burger Kitchen has made a burger for each candidate – with current Mayor Ken Livingstone represented by a red chilli burger. The Ken Burger has been described as "Hot, fiery and a bit of a mouthful"
Lib Dem candidate Brian Paddick declined to take a bite out of the Livingstone burger – or that of rival Boris Johnson.
A blue cheese burger has been made in honour of the "hidden depths" of the Conservative candidate, although the company said the burger was "a bit cheesy".
Michael McGough (below) of the UK Independence Party wasn’t so squeamish however and had a chomp on the “Ken Burger”.
Gourmet Burger Kitchen said it will be recorded sales to see which is the most popular.
"After all", managing director David Sykes deadpanned, "gut instinct plays an important part in everyone’s decision at election time."
