Party Conference was held in Coalville Leicestershire 22-25 Sept 22
The venue was the famous Victoria Music Rooms in Whitwick Road. We were the first ever political party invited to hold their conference in ‘The House Of Commons’, for this establishment is owned by a certain Mr John Commons, ha ha!!
I booked into Coalville on Thurs 15th just to make sure all went well and as usual it did. The wander around town letting all know what, and where it was happening is always good fun. Plus meeting up with the media. I spent 3 days with Chris Hills and Edna from JAMedia.uk, doing a news documentary.
Also Alex Zoboli of ‘Cesura’ productions came all the way from Italy, he is doing a documentary and a book on World Politics, and his company insisted that we be included, he was in attendance for the whole duration. I felt proud of the Party, and the recognition that we have achieved.
During the convention we were entertained by some great bands, ‘Morderstein’ – ‘Audiorage’, and ‘Gripper and the Gonads’ on Friday. Saturday saw our usual dance around town with the ‘The Black Pig Morris Side’, one hell of a spectacle and the town loved us.
Then back to base for our annual Cabinet Reshuffle, of course in a bedroom cabinet, why do you ask? Followed by the Leaders Speech, then on with show. Guest of honour Matthew Fisher the Tiswas Bunny, remember him. He sang Bright Eyes, and we set a new world record of Kazoo players backing him.
We also set the the record for the first organsiation/crowd etc to play God save the King on a kazoo. 41 kazoo’s to be precise. Another World record set by the Loony Party
A special thanks to John Commons, Dave and the Vic team for accommodating us. And even more of an applause for all our members and local peoples for joining in and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
When are you coming back was the last cry I heard. Nice to know we are welcome again.
Just a short note of notoriety – We Were The First Political Party To Hold A Conference In The Reign Of King Charles III.
