A great result, raised a few eyebrows, coming fourth from eight candidates. Ok, so Conservative and Ukip didn’t stand, they threw their weight behind Zac Goldsmith, so unfortunately they also lost, didn’t they!
I arrived in Richmond on Sunday 27th Nov to start our campaign, although my agent Jason Chinnery, ‘Chinners’ our Minister for Spinning and Bouncing, had already done most of the footwork, getting the nomination papers signed and paving the way for a wonderful sense of camaraderie between us and the electors. Chinners is a local, he knows everybody.
On the Monday, St George of Rideon, our candidate from Gloucester arrived for a day or two, we went canvassing the streets laughing and joking with anybody who he could get to listen. He thoroughly enjoyed himself, pity he couldn’t stay longer.
Thursday, we held our Victory Party in the ‘Triple Crown’ thanks to Harvey the landlord, usually this would be on the Wednesday but circumstances made this difficult, so Thurs it was. A fine line up of entertainment was had by all.
‘The Big Fibbers’ started the show, followed by ‘Chris Dowling’ and ‘Whats Next’, then ‘The Mojo Crew’, ‘Linda Landers’ did a guest spot, as did the Howling ‘Laud’ and – The Teenage Kicker – ‘Chinners’. By now ‘The Flying Brick’ had arrived from Derbyshire and others ready for the count to be held that very same evening. So after a night of raucous Rock’n’Roll of we went,
Myself, The Brick, Knigel Knapp, OB and the Lawd, Yvonne Elwood, Lib Dem Dave and Chinners.
The count was the usual good fun, Flying and Howling getting up to their usual tricks, with the worlds cameras flashing all over the place, when we made our grand entrance. Once again thanks to Chinners for all his hard work and endeavour, a fine job he did. And of course to ‘Punk Rock Harvey’ the landlord, who gave us the use of his premises and the 184 voters who got it right.
Phew, a couple of days back home, then off again on Sunday up to Sleaford Lincolnshire for another by-election on Thurs 8th. Supporting our candidate ‘The Iconic Arty Pole’. Watch for more news!!!

If by any chance you cannot make it to the Loony party Conference and you live within travelling distance of East Molesey you could always go down to the Poyntz Arms (Walton Road, East Molesey, KT8 0DP) on Fri 30th Sept to see the terrific Delta Ladies. Check out their reviews here deltaladies.com/reviews.
The Party Conference next year Fri 25th-Sat 26th Sept 2015, is to be held in Blackpool. Uncle Toms Cabin, a fine music venue on Blackpools North Shore, 44-46 Queens Promenade, FY2 9RW. This venue is not a hotel so no accommodation is available unfortunately, but, I have arranged with one of our party members Lord Guilderoy, of the ‘New Guilderoy Hotel’ on Holmfield Road, only 750 yds away for a £25 pound
a night stay to include breakfast. When he is full, he knows the guest houses either side of him and can fix us up in there! Uncle Toms is about half a mile from the tower and Town Centre, bus and tram stops right outside. I have also arranged with ‘Jo’ the landlady for motor home and tent camping on the premises.
If you wish to make your own arrangements all very well, lots of places on the doorstep in Northumberland Road, Knowle Avenue and Holmfield Road, but stay in the Cabin area, that’s the name of the tram stop. Best to find the venue first then make your mind up!
Vince Ripper and his Rock ‘n’ Roll Horror show will be on both nights, already booked, to intersperse with whatever other entertainment may be on. The venue will provide a suitable band on the Friday, free of charge.
We have also at our disposal a Double Decker open top bus, to perambulate along the promenade on, with various banners and loud hailers, already confirmed.
I would like to thank Vince Cornwall, Tony Davies and Simon Connelly, all Party Members, for helping to make this happen, and last but not least, the lovely ‘Jo’ of the Cabin for allowing it to happen.
Come and make a week of it, I will, and your more than welcome to come and join me!
