Rainbow George (George Weiss)

I first became aware of George way back in the mid 80s, a good friend of Screaming Lord Sutch. He had his own party called ‘The Rainbow Party’, we used to team up with him at various elections. He would often come along to some of the seats that we were contesting as well. A very good friend of Peter Cook, Dudley Moore and Ian Dury. More recently he formed a ‘Make Politics History’ party, I remember we had some fun up at the Hartlepool by-election in 2004, he had Ronnie Carroll the 50s/60s pop singer as his candidate. He also knew the Rock’n’Roll star Wee Willie Harris, so he fitted into our coterie very easily. We were fans of his, and he was a fan of ours.
So long George, been good to know you.
