The Official Monster Raving Loony Party send all our good wishes to Boris Johnson and hope that you get well very soon.
Our thoughts are also with his fiancee Carrie Symonds in these difficult times.
Get Well Soon
Sorry more sad news, another friend of mine/ours, Lord Bath of Longleat, Alexander to his friends, has passed away. He helped set up ‘The Wessex Regionalist Party’ with our friend Colin Bex. If any of you were with me at the Kensington and Chelsea By-election in 1997, you will remember that he met up with us at our victory party in the pub before we went to the count. The last time I saw him was in Frome, Somerset, when myself and Derrill Carr were organising one of our Co-ALE-ition beers at the Milk Street Brewery about 4 years ago. He was 87, it was this deadly Corona thing that he succumbed too. R I P my friend, from all in the Monster Raving Loony Party, and I guess we speak for many more.

We have a special Bonus Game for you in our #LoonyLotto today with a loontastic prize. In these isolating times, it is fabulous to have my favourite show TISWAS back on our monitors to keep me company, and at it’s usual Saturday morning time of 10.30am! You can watch it live here >>TiswasOnline<< Remember you need to submit your entry via our Twitter account using the hashtag #LoonyLotto by no later than 10am on Sat 4th April
I trust you are all doing your bit to help out in these harrowing times, keeping yourselves out of harms way I hope. Its going to be a long and boring next 2 or 3 weeks, but we can do it, for the sake of ourselves, and all those that come after us. Not at all good news for any of us at the moment.
On an even sadder note, I must report some recent passings. Its goodbye to Val Bird, Screaming Lord Sutch’s admin for the ‘Official Sutch’ fan club. Wasn’t so much involved in the party, but was always on hand at any Sutch related ‘do’s and helpful with the history side of things.
Next, Leon Slater, Leon lived in Fleet was a party sympathiser attended 4 Conferences in Fleet and Hook all in Hampshire. In fact if you see page 35 of the latest Wetherspoon Mag, you will see Leon on the far left of the first picture, just a couple of months ago.
And then Nick Holden, Nick was a very well established Bass Player, from Camberley, Surrey, you may well remember him from the conferences held in Yateley. A quiet unassuming guy, just dropped dead on the spot, for no apparent reason.
RIP from us all.
Anyway enough of that for quite some time I hope.
Always look on the bright side of life whilst you can. So all being well we shall meet again in September, look after yourselves.
Howling ‘Laud’ Hope

The Monster Raving Loony Party has recently come to the aid of Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London. He appealed to Londoners via Twitter to only buy what they need. We came to his assistance with our #Manicfesto policy for supermarkets to lock away the trolleys. Lord Andrew of Neil picked up the tweet and circulated. At present we have yet to hear from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, M&S, Morrisons, Lidl, Aldi, the Co-op and Asda. Maybe they are busy locking up their trolleys!
