Lord Matthew Wright – Minister of Wrights, Wrongs & Lefts.
As usual, Lord Wright has been busy with his show on LBC radio, questioning unofficial loony party representatives on the drivel they spout whilst also keeping This Morning viewers entertained. Hawkwind collaboration possibilities are underway for next year along with keeping Princess Cassady on the straight & narrow.
Lord Dave Savage – Minister of Hair & Fringe Politics.
As our Minister responsible for Government Cuts, Lord Savage was rather miffed to not have been consulted for his considerable experience on this matter by the present Chancellor Jeremy Hunt before announcing his Autumn Statement. To console himself, Lord Savage has rounded up troops for a special gala performance on Boxing Day along with celebrating Stray Cats Day.
Lady Bouvs – Party Whip
It has been a very hectic time for ‘mlady, what with all the unofficial loony MPs misbehaving at every turn possible. As it is customary, Bouvs is once again giving her gazillion twitter.com/bouvsx fans a special treat with her Advent Calendar whilst giving some serious consideration to which constituency to stand in for the looming General Election.
More Ministerial Going-On’s in a few days after we have finalised the recipients on our NEW YEAR HONOURS list with a well-deserved award of an OFFICIAL Loony Ministry to maintain come the imminent Loony Mudslide, but… Who will our 5 new Ministers be?
Accompanied by a full sized tiger Stewart Exotic energetically campaigned in the North Yorkshire County Council Sowerby and Topcliffe by-election. He braved freezing blizzards and treacherous conditions at the hustings so valiantly found his way to the pub. Pictured with Paul the Poet after securing twenty votes.

Lord Colin Murray – Minister of the Cups of Connection, Conversation & Community*
Despite a recent sip from a cup of Corona, Lord Murray has been a busy boy planning his weeknights show for Radio5Live along with daily gaming in the afternoons on Channel 4. He has now been given the role to monitor the Countdown to the forthcoming General Election which will no doubt result in an OFFICIAL Loony Mudslide.
(* Due to BBC & Channel4 guidelines, The OMRLP are required to point out that Lord Murray is totally impartial and would also be a Loony Minister of any other political party, should they feel inclined to appoint him)
Lord, Rev & Dr Clive Jackson – Minister of Love, Peace & Bananas
With Christmas approaching, Lord Jackson has recorded a cracker of a tune with some friends in aid of the King George & Queen’s Hospital Charity. He can also be found hosting a delightful selection of tunes every Thursday on 365Radio
The Christmas Crackers for King George & Queen’s Hospital Charity
Lord of Asteroid 52665 Brian May – Minister of the Badger Starfleet
With the weather being so unpredictable at the moment, Lord May has come up with a suitably loony umbrella to protect you from these various elements falling from the skies, however, they may not be of any help in defending the plethora of nonsense currently raining down from the unofficial loony politicians. Meanwhile the new series of ‘Andy & the Oddsocks’ gets some Rock n Roll guidance from Lord May
Lords DRIP & DRAB
Their show every Thursday at 10am on Radio Alty (which can be accessed via the Radio button on our website) continues to spread the Loony gospel far & wide along with pearls of wisdom & guidance solving listeners Donut Dilemma’s sutch as using Golf club Captains as target practice.

Lord Tony Blackburn – Minister for Disc Jockey’s having Fun
Possibly one of our busiest Ministers at present with a plethora of radio shows along with taking his Sounds of Sixties to nearly everywhere possible in the UK.
Many of our OFFICIAL Loony Ministers have been very busy bees of late so we think it is only proper & correct to inform you all about some of their current pound sterling work in a mini Loony series of updates in the next couple of weeks on this website…
Howling Laud Hope – Party Leader
One night back in the early 1960’s our Glorious Party Leader upstaged a new band on the scene who called themselves The Beatles. Details of this footnote in history can be explored further in his book
‘The Great White Hope’
Lord Bob Harris – Minister of Testing Whispers & Whistles
On a similar note, back in the day that band had written so many songs that they could not record them all. Lord Harris, along with music journalist Colin Hall, are now undertaking an intimate speaking tour until May 2024 discussing
‘The Songs The Beatles Gave Away’
Lady Sophie Green – Minister for Conserving Leopard’s Spots
Our ridiculously talented Mighty Fine Artist raises much needed money for conservation projects, and currently has one of her original pieces up for auction in aid of ‘Explorers Against Extinction‘. We are very much looking forward to her future project to help ‘Save the Dodo’
Lord John Robb – Minister of the Alternative Underground
‘The Power of ROCK N ROLL’ is a long held passion of the party since our Spiritual Leader, Screaming Lord Sutch, first stood for election back in 1963. Lord Robb will be discussing this and much more on his spoken word Spring tour of 2024 ‘The Power of ROCK N ROLL‘
Lord Taylor Mod – Minister of Magic Circles and #MagicModMonday
After years of practice and studying, we are delighted to announce that our Magical Minister has now passed all the tests and is now an OFFICIAL member of The Magic Circle
More Ministerial updates coming soon…
We love to campaign and as soon as the by election was called I made an appointment at the council offices to be registered as a candidate.
Our campaigning took two ways; keeping the Loonies in the public eye by standing outside various shops with posters. And going to the local pubs. We have found the best thing to do in the pubs is to sit down and let people come to you. Everyone likes the loonies. We give out leaflets etc. and now a Loony candidate is expected.
A big thank you to my team: Charly Fitzpatrick and my son Alistair. I received 249 votes.
Ann Kelly – The Mid Bed Minx
It rained on the drive down, and continued when I collected the register from the Tamworth council offices. The 14th September was a very wet day but the moment I arrived on Bancroft Road the rain stopped. The residents of Glascote welcomed me dressed in my large top hat, yellow ‘recycled teenager’ T-shirt and adorned lab coat and saw little reason not to nominate Howling Laud as their hopeful representative. I collected the signatures of ten registered voters within an hour and within seconds of Amy offering the tenth endorsement the rain started again!
All the elections staff at Tamworth were very polite and extremely friendly and led by regular defeater of gravity ‘sky god’ Andrew Barratt.
The night before election day Howling Laud our party leader and candidate lost the use of his legs. The following day he was ambulanced to Burton Hospital where he continued to run the campaign. Having spent ten days in the constituency Howling had a good knowledge of the town centre hostelries so he directed us to meet at The Blue Water Indian Restaurant which was one of the finer curries I have ever tasted. Later we spent a happy time at The Market Vaults where we enjoyed listening to live music.
Gilly recognised that our group required leadership and calmly assumed charge, so when we arrived at Rawlett School, where the count was being held, we all cheered him into the room.
I visited Howling in Burton Hospital the following morning on my way home, he is chipper and being well looked after so we are all confident of a speedy recovery.

Many people have commented on the absence of Alan Howling Laud Hope at the Tamworth By election yesterday, where he was the candidate for the Official Monster Raving Loony Party.
Alan was taken ill yesterday morning and was taken to hospital. Get well soon Alan.
The Tamworth by election was won by the Labour party who are rightly proud of their 20% swing from Conservative.
However, Howling gained a whopping 155 votes. This is less than the 506 votes gained by Screaming Lord Sutch in 1996 but it’s a great result in an area where we do not have a large campaigning presence. Well done Howling
At the Mid Bedfordshire by election, which Labour also won, our candidate Ann Kelly achieved a massive 249 votes. In 2019 she gained 536 votes so slightly down on last time but a valiant effort. Well done to the Bedfordshire Minx!
