Sir Archibald Stanton Earl ‘Eaton

Sir Archibald Stanton Earl ‘Eaton is the candidate for the West Yorkshire Dewsbury Constituency. He is seen here with his right hand man Gilly Nicholls. They were photographed in the constituency by Peter Townend.
Sir Archibald is a local Dewsbury lad, born and educated at ‘Eaton’ – Earlsheaton that is, (nursery infant and junior school). His ancestor Arch Stanton’s grave is featured in the film ‘The Good,The Bad and the Ugly’.
He will be seen on the campaign trail over the next few weeks with Gilly and the rest of his Loony Team in their battle bus and trailer. A concert is arranged at their Campaign HQ ‘The Woodman Inn’ at Batley Carr prior to election day. This is a unique opportunity for Dewsbury to elect their new MP – representing The Official Monster Raving Loony Party

The Baron and the Dame

Two for the price of One. Baron Von Thunderclap Shadow Minister for the protection of Dodo’s and the Panto Dame are standing in constituencies only a few miles apart. They chose to give a joint interview with the Argus newspaper.
They discussed many policies agreeing on the main one of putting smiles on faces.

Others included calming down the passions and stresses currently exhibited in Parliament, by making all MP’s have half an hour Tai Chi everyday.
This would counteract the other 23 ½ hours they engage in Chi Ting.

Lily the Pink on the Campaign trail!

Lady Lily the Pink is putting the finishing touches to a batch of pink fairy cakes. The kitchen surfaces at her home, in Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, are sticky with pink icing. The colour scheme matches that of her election-time alter ego, Lady Lily the Pink.

General Election

On your marks, get set, ready, here we go. A general election has been called for Thursday 12th December 2019. Your party expects, ‘if you can’, to be a candidate, in your own constituency. You must bear in mind though, that you can’t just do it, you must get a letter of authorisation from our registered Nomination Officer. This is done easily enough by calling Howling Laud on 07946292557. Give him your name, plus ‘Loony Name’ if you have one, (if not he will sort you). Address, phone no, and E-mail, also the name of the constituency in which you want to stand. At this precise moment in time we have twenty four candidates confirmed. So come on in and join us and you never know, you could become a hero. A legend in your time, or even a sensible politician. Getting ready to Rule the Looniverse.
Howling ‘Laud’ Hope
Loony Party Leader.

Deputy Leaders

In the wake of the Labour Party trying to get rid of their Deputy Leader, the OFFICIAL Monster Raving Loony Party now has 5 deputy leaders! Knigel Knapp, Baron Von Thunderclap, Chinners, The Incredible Flying Brick &  RU Seerius.
Another First for the Loony Party The Dream Team

36th Monster Raving Loony Party roundup – Conference 2019

Another Belter in Belper, we returned to the venue of our very successful 2018 conference, and were welcomed with open arms by the town, and ‘The George and Dragon’. Once again Craig and his staff did us proud.
I arrived as usual 10 days prior to the event, just to make sure all was well. Thursday saw many people arriving to get settled in for the weekend. Friday started off with a TV spot, we were recorded for the Daily Politics show North East, by Tony Roe which was then sent round nationwide, very honoured we were too, a great success. Followed by various radio interviews.
Then, wow, it started. Entertainment was second to none. First on was Gareth Ike, son of David, excellent spot, all his own material, interesting songs that you could actually understand. Up next came ‘Man Pant’ with Craig the landlord as lead vocalist, a good fun Glam Rock band. Followed by ‘Gripper and the Gurnards’, punk rock at its best, featuring ‘Nick the Flying Brick’, loony party treasurer on bass guitar. The Loony All Stars then backed Joe Jammer from Chicago, great set, it was Joe’s birthday! Chinners was then invited up to do a rendition of ‘Jack the Ripper’ in memory of ‘Screaming Lord Sutch’, followed by a Rock’n’Roll spot from our Illustrious Leader, Howling ‘Laud’ Hope, much to the surprise of many. Last but not least, ‘Badaxe’ managed to get himself chucked off stage by the management, yet another great achievement, another venue he’s barred from. Ended up finishing his spot out in the car park. He’ll be back! Ha Ha.

Saturday 12 noon pub crawl of Belper, the town came alive, they knew we were coming, made us all feel very welcome. We were joined now by ‘The Black Pig Morris Side’ what a colourful spectacle they are. Once again buses stopped to watch our shenanigans, and rounds of applause from the local crowds. Back to base now for our annual cabinet reshuffle, in a bedroom cabinet laid on its back, the TV love it. The Party Leader then gavea stirring speech much to the amusement and accolade of all that were there. Thanking all those who stood in their local elections, especially Lily the Pink who beat Ukip in the Brecon by-election. Something very unusual happened next, we broke a world record, we had 112 people playing ‘The Eye of the Tiger’ on Kazoos, a record held out in America by 97 people, not any more. Then went on to set two new records, 112 people playing ‘The Laurel and Hardy’ theme tune, ‘The Cuckoo Song’, plus ‘Land of Hope and Glory’. Special thanks to Barmy Lord Brockman for arranging this performance and supplying the Gazzoos. A short welcome break now before the evening show. —– Phew!
‘The Big Fibbers’ opened up, stalwarts as ever. Followed by Dale Rowles and his BB Black Dog Band, Steam Punk at its best. All culminating with the Stars of the weekend Dr Diablo and the Rodent show, lets use that word again ‘WOW’excellent.
All in all, we wondered if we could do better than last year, we had a jolly good try, and many said we succeeded, Well, lets try again next year, Louth in Lincolnshire is looking good at the moment, although other venues are offering to host. Salisbury, Coalville, Fleet, Blackpool, Wales and Manchester. See – loonyparty .com – for info as it happens.
Now looking ahead, a General Election is looming, more than likely than not. Have you got your £500 deposit ready to stand, if not borrow it. We need as many candidates as possible, political pundits are laying bets that we will achieve our best results ever, and in many cases retain our £500 deposits for the first time ever. Think about it seriously.
Once again, many thanks to Dale Rowles for his expertise Craig and his gang at the George & Dragon, all the wonderful artistes that entertained us. But most of all, to those of you that showed up and gave us your friendship and moral support. The mainstay of our distinguished party. Without you all, it could not happen.
Thanks also to all our party members from The Flying Brick, R U Seerius, Baron Von Thunderclap, Sir Knigel Knapp, and Chinners. The Loony Team.
Howling ‘Laud’ Hope – Loony Party Leader.
