Political Scrapheap Challenge

We now enter the final section of this year's Political Scrapheap Challenge. Witness 3 teams - Red, Yellow and Green, no!, Red? No! Blue try to win by pulling together some vaguely plausible contraption using a junkyard full of old policies, discarded ideologies, worn-out concepts and broken promises.

Currently, no matter how pathetic their efforts or bankrupt their thinking is, someone will win or a tie will occur. What is equally absurd is each team will be paid just for attending and will continue to be paid because they have been attending in the past.

Once a winning team has been chosen, the population will, figuratively speaking, turn up at the newsagents and find out that for the next 4 or 5 years they have to pay for Pepsi instead of Coke and have no chance of an alternative until the majority change their mind.
