Sooooo…It’s Election Day In The UK

Paul P. sent us a video of this cute birdeh, and remarked “This robin’s standing for election, I think.” The fact that it’s election day….and the bird is chirping on the fence at the PM’s house…must have some connection.

UPDATE JUST IN: OK, we got an update from Paul. “That door is #10 Downing Street, London– the British equivalent of the White House where the Prime Minister lives and holds his cabinet. While the general election is on, the press are waiting, and spend their time filming the local this fox.”

“There’s also Larry the famous Downing St cat.” I love the British media.

Right, play the clip.



  1. The “Larry Claims” clip is hilarious. I would watch US news on TV if they did cool stuff like this.

  2. I love the robin in that first clip: “Here I am singing to defend my patch, and wait, gotta go, I think I hear another male robin!” He’s not at all registering the VIP humans rushing about in the background, but he probably has Larry and the fox on his bird-dar.

    Also today is the last day to take part in a poll to pick UK national Bird where the Robin is standing

    THIS clip of “Larry, the Downing Street cat” is excellent. Seems he can come and go as he likes! I enjoy how the “bobby” posted outside reacts to Larry, heh:

    For the life of me I can’t figure out where that fox came from, but it being on election day, I do believe it means… somthing.
