Lewisham East By-Election June 14th 2018

We are pleased to announce that our deposit has been paid and nomination papers officially accepted, yes we are up and running. Our candidate is our Illustrious Leader, Howling ‘Laud’ Hope. After a bit of a false start with our nominated agent Trevor Allman, he had a bit of trouble collecting the 10 names for the nomination paper.

Well done Trevor for trying, but maybe you shouldn’t have tried to do it, on a rainy day. Nevertheless on Weds 16th May we sent in reinforcements in the shape of ‘Chinners’ the Chin-up Boy, minister for Spinning and Bouncing, and ‘Knigel Knapp’, The Knight of the Unknown. Within an hour and a half, the mission was completed, thanks from us all for this sterling effort. All the electors names being obtained from ‘The Catford Con Club’ if that’s not sterling I don’t know what is. Well done, pat on the back (more like a pint of beer) to our two staunch stalwart party members. This is Looniness working together!

On Friday 18th, Chinners and myself spent time in the Boro of Lewisham depositing said monies and papers. The Election Officer, Jamie Baker seemed very pleased that we were standing, (it’s not a real election without you) was the attitude. Very amiable and helpful person, thank you Jamie.

Cant wait to get this show on the road now, not too sure where the count will be yet, but will be informed.
Howling ‘Laud’ Hope.

Front Runner in the Lewisham East By-election

Our Illustrious and stalwart party leader Alan ‘Howling Laud’ Hope is the obvious choice to be Lewisham East’s next MP. Howling is a familiar face on the political scene having previously fought 21 Parliamentary seats against Teresa May, David Cameron, Boris Johnson and many others. He is feeling jubilant as he has just been returned to serve on his local ‘Fleet Town Council’ Hampshire for another four years. This is his third win for this seat.
He has previously been the Town Mayor, Chairman of the Council, Lord of the Borough for Ashburton, Devon 1998 – 2000, and Ashburton Town Councillor for 13 years. So he has a lot to offer the people of Lewisham East. All these elections have been achieved on a ‘Loony Party’ ticket. If you don’t usually vote, then vote unusually, vote Loony. Remember the only wasted vote is one that’s not used.

Lewisham East

Heidi Alexander, a Labour MP, stood down yesterday to become the London deputy Mayor for Transport. She is vacating her Lewisham East seat.
The ‘Official Monster Raving Loony Party’ will be contesting this seat, in the shape of their well seasoned parliamentary candidate, party leader, Howling ‘Laud’ Hope. His running mate, agent, will be Trevor Allman, more commonly known as Lord Halfperson. He very recently stood in the recent local council elections in Blackheath Greenwich, polling 106 votes. Howling ‘Laud’ Hope however was returned to his local Town Council in Fleet, Hampshire, with an overwhelming amount of unopposed votes, for the third time running.

Nobody knows when this will happen yet, but keep an eye on www.loonyparty.com for regular updates. We are all looking forward to it with great anticipation, and Looniversal Sensibilism! Remember – The only wasted vote is one that’s not used!
The Howling ‘Laud’.

Election Results

Farmin’ Lord Dave – Denton South – 206
Trevor Allman – Blackheath Greenwich -106
Chinners – Chessington North – 82
Howling Laud – Hart District – 60
Baron Badger – Walton North – 38
Monkey – Molesey East – 22

Although he didn’t make Hart District Council, ‘Howling Laud’ did retain his seat for another 4 years, with an overwhelming unopposed vote on Fleet Town Council.
Well done to all of you who actually stood, and a very big thank you to all those that voted for us. There was not one seat that had more than a 40% turn out, so 50% wasted votes. Imagine if they had all voted for us? The only wasted vote is one that’s not used. Looking
at it that way, if voting was made compulsory, I’d like to think that we’d
probably win – And that’s probably why it’s not!!!
A drink on me for all contestants at the conference and a bottle of wine for the outright winner, Farmin’ Lord Dave!

Party Leader.
