After a hard fought campaign, and a close ballot, the Short Third Man is pleased to announce that Andrew Strauss (MP for Middlesex) has been declared winner of the Cricket Election. With a clear overall majority, Strauss assumes the role for his Conservative party (unlike real-life David Cameron, who has to wait).
The Short Third Man would like to thank all who voted, and contributed throughout the cricket election experiment. (Don't worry, I'll never speak of it again).
