How you can legally blow up the General Election candidates

Who's ahead in the General Election? 

And are you worried that that leader's head is getting too big?

Well, it could be about to go bang, no thanks to you.

Inflated Egos is an art installation in London that features renderings of the seven candidates who appeared in the first televised debate. 

Each leader appears as a mannequin with a balloon for a head; the head will inflate or deflate, depending on their performance during the campaign. You can help blow up a head by tweeting #INFLATE followed by the politician's first name.

Launched on Monday in East London's Hoxton Gallery, the display has since moved to Partizan in Lexington Street, Soho, where it will remain until Saturday.

It's certainly a novel way to blow up Parliament.
