Just for fun: British humour on the General Election

Have a look at Downing Street Fighter, based on  Street Fighter.

Here is how the game is described on the site:

Downing Street Fighter is based on the classic favourite, Street Fighter. […] Much like the original Street Fighter, you literally have to fight a series of enemies one after the other until you ultimately triumph as the winner.[…] Each character has a different special move for you to use and there are also bonus levels. If you want to triumph though, you will need to get past the big boss character – the Blair Witch. A cross between Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair, there has never been anything quite so frightening on the British political scene.
The reason why T-Enterprise built this game was to attempt to generate interest in the General Elections at a time when political apathy is at an all time high and the country is seriously struggling to regain some sort of equilibrium. This election is one of the most important in recent history so we decided to do our bit to raise awareness via what we do best – by building fun games.  Downing Street Fighter is completely unbiased as the three main characters are balanced in terms of their abilities so you simply have to choose the one you want to win. It is therefore only a political tool as far as its use to promote the election is concerned rather than favouring any particular party.
