Crazy! Pig invited to vote in election!

A council sent a letter to a woman's pet pig offering the animal the chance to register to vote in the election.

The letters were addressed to Blossom Grant at Pig Flats - the animal's old sty in Uckfield, East Sussex.

The building was renovated two years ago and now houses volunteers at a local horse rescue centre, reports the Daily Telegraph.

But due to a Land Registry error the pig receives several junk letters a month.

Pauline Grant, 73, Blossom's owner, said: "I could not believe it when the letter telling Blossom to register to vote came through it was one of the strangest things I had ever seen.

"I am not sure who Blossom would have voted for but at a guess I would say the Green Party. They would probably look after her needs best.

"She is a very clever animal but I think politics might be a bit complicated for her."

After contacting Wealden District Council to point out the mix-up, Mrs Grant decided to take Blossom down to her nearest polling station on May 6.

She added: "I did it as a sort of piggy protest for poor old Blossom and the amount of paperwork she is expected to do."

A spokesman for Wealden District said: "The flat is listed as being named The Pig on a database of addresses used by local authorities. I can confirm no pigs voted in the area last week."
