We came, we saw, but we didn’t conker, conkers aren’t ready until September.
There were fifteen candidates and we beat five of them, coming in at tenth place. We were a little disappointed at not being a bit higher, but then many people told me that had ‘The Brexit Party’ not been standing, we would have had their vote, so a little bit of encouragement. All in all good banter, good friendly place, met up with all the usual suspects of the political world.
Other candidates were very friendly, none more so than Mike Greene of the Brexit Party, a new friend of mine. We had a lot in common, not millionaire wise though, I wish!
Once again my agent, the ‘Flying Brick’ did his usual grand job of securing all the names for the nomination papers, in the pouring rain, I might add. Well done Flying, he loves it really.
I spent eleven days in Peterborough on the run-up to the election, with ‘The College Arms’ Wetherspoons as my main meeting place and where I held the Loony Party surgery’s. A lot of fun and laughter was had by all. Met up with Katie Hopkins doing a documentary for Fox TV news, apparently they love us out in America. Also Rod Liddle, another old friend and good drinking partner.
A lot of media coverage from radio, TV and the newspapers. At the count we made our usual grand entrance, supervised by the Flying Brick. By now I had been joined by Mr RU Seerius, Lady Hell ‘n Bak, Chinners, Baron Badger, Miss Yvonne This, OB Joyful, Steve the Lawd son, Stevie Rules and party sympathiser Derrill Carr. Mike Greene made the comment ‘It was as if Elvis had just entered the building, absolutely wonderful, very impressive’. The SDP were very relieved to get 23 votes more than us, it was they that we beat in Bootle, when Dr David Owen was in charge, and they have only just started up again!
When the Ball was over, we were invited to attend the Brexit ‘victory party’. What a shock they came second, obviously turned out to be a runners up party. Nevertheless a good end to the evening, or early morning is a better way of putting it.
The latest news is, that if it’s proven to be a fraudulent result, there could be a re-run. Electoral Commission looking into voting misdemeanours.
Now that could be good fun all over again. Who’s ready to join us at the next by-election? There is no date as yet, but its probably Brecon in mid Wales.
Howling Laud Hope
