I hear that Bell Pottinger is offering one lucky lobbyist the chance to stuff his or her face at Heston Blumenthal’s flagship restaurant – in return for correctly predicting the outcome of the election.
An email sent out to staff by agency boss Peter Bingle this morning states: ‘This is the competition you have all been waiting for. The chance to accurately predict the outcome of the general election and win lunch at The Fat Duck.’
Bingle is giving his staff until 2200 on 6th May to make their predictions and says the rules are ‘very simple’:
1. ‘You are only allowed one entry. No cheating!’
2. ‘You need to predict the largest party and the number of seats won by that party.’
3. ‘ If there is more than one winner we will be going to Nandos!’
