Demand for MP horror masks see Halloween surge

While sales of ‘traditional’ scary masks of ghouls and ghosts are on the wane, demand for ‘terrifyingly lifelike’ political character masks was said to be soaring this Halloween. Peter Mandelson, Harriet Harman, and Gordon Brown masks are now top sellers, with novelty retailers expressing shock that politicians could actually be helping the economy.

However health professionals fear that these masks may seriously disturb those of a nervous disposition and psychologists have warned of the trauma that could be caused by ‘answering the door to find Boris Johnson staring at you and asking for sweeties’.

Many Politicians have embraced the spooky trend however, and Tory leader David Cameron was this week seen shopping for a new mask to wear, as his current Tony Blair one was beginning to slip.
