Gordon Brown “like soil mixed with Marmite” April 22, 2010

As the general election draws ever closer, nerves are fraught.  Who are we going to vote for?  And can we truly differentiate between the policies of the main three parties?

James Wannerton can.  He’s the president of the UK Synaesthesia Association. He experiences words as tastes and textures, a neurological condition known as lexical-gustatory synaesthesia.  Which makes him a prime candidate on giving us another view on the prime candidates! (did you see what we did there?)

Here’s Wannterton’s review of ITV’s recent televised election debate:

Gordon Brown’s name tastes horrible, and his flavour was nasty – like soil mixed with Marmite. That said, he was good on education, when he tasted of peaches, sliced potato and bacon.

Nick Clegg tastes of a pickled onion yet he kept turning soft, mushy and warm. Immigration was good for him. His speech reminded me of sweets I had as a kid – fruit pastilles, Spangles and liquorice.

David Cameron’s flavour was best. He gave me a taste of ink, which I find comforting. His name tastes of macaroons, but he said sorry so frequently it covered the macaroons with condensed milk.

So there you have it.  Mmm…. ink.
