Now you could probably have a Michelin-starred dinner with change from £100 (Mitt doesn't drink) but when the 2012 US Presidential election was at its epoch back in October, you wouldn't get much change from $1,000 (£615). And you'd have to share your meal with Romney's exhausted campaign staff.

Views from the top deck: A photography project conducted on London buses reveals a fresh side to city life

Top Deck tells the story of life in a city over the course of two years, as seen entirely from inside east London's buses. A collaboration by the photographers Will Robson-Scott and James Pearson-Howes, it is a love-note to the capital, capturing the cultural variety and rugged beauty of the place in which they were both born and raised. Shooting from a bus, Robson-Scott explains, "you can show the diversity… a route like the 149 goes through the City that is full of bankers and hedgefund managers. Then, within half an hour, you're in Tottenham, known for its crime and social problems".
