As you may or may not be aware, the UK General Election is nigh. In just under three weeks’ time (May 7th to be exact) the British public will go to the polls to vote for the local MPs who will represent them in Parliament. The party who gains the most seats in the election wins the right to send its leader to 10 Downing Street to be the Prime Minister.

There he or she will remain for five years unless, according to the Parliament.UK website, “a motion of no confidence is passed in Her Majesty's Government by a simple majority and 14 days elapses without the House passing a confidence motion in any new Government formed or a motion for a general election is agreed by two thirds of the total number of seats in the Commons including vacant seats (currently 434 out of 650).”
