European Elections

Just a reminder to all that, the European elections and some local elections are coming to a Polling station near you. In this year of remembrance for WWI and WWII, it is important to use the very vote for which many sadly gave their lives and fought, so that we could live in freedom and choose who we want to lead us.

So go and spend a few minutes casting your vote. Having said this unfortunately the Loony Party will not be standing any candidates as MEP’s as it cost £5k deposit to stand as a candidate. So it would seem to be democracy at a price. Wonga turned us down for a loan for our deposit, on the premise that we would be running up large debts, to which we replied “It’ll be good practice for when we get into Government”

Top of the League

As there are now so many organisations creating league table’s to monitor performance of NHS, Schools, Police, Dustman etc, we in the Loony Party propose to create a League table to monitor compilers of League tables. Those who come at the bottom will be made to sit down and learn their tables (anyone remember them?)

Monster Mash is a rebranded version of Mash brewery’s award winning Mash Gold ale this is a very refreshing 4% golden ale with citrus zesty flavours resulting from the American Citra hops that are used. The Monster Mash pumpclip is a work of art, unique, very eye catching and completely different from the any of the previous six Co-ALE-ition pumpclips. We have used a photo of Alan Hope (Leader of the Loony Party) sitting over his cabinet who are from left to right:-  Knigel Knapp the Shadow Minister for big fibs and blatant lies, Baron Von Thunderclap Shadow Minister for saving the dodo, Chinners Shadow Minister for spinning and bouncing, The Flying Brick Shadow Minister for the abolition of gravity, RU Seerius Shadow Ministry for uncommitted manifesto commitments.
