Howling ‘Laud’ Hope – Party Leader

Barmy Lord Brockman

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Paul Brockman from Evesham. Also known as ‘Barmy Lord Brockman’. He joined the party in 2014, and has been a stalwart member ever since, so much so that we recently made him our Vice Chairman. He stood many times for us in his local area and was hoping to stand in a parliamentary election. He was our ‘Facebook Warrior’ all through the pandemic years, always putting a smile on everyone’s faces. So Long Barmy, a good friend to us all, you show them how to play that ‘Kazoo’ up in the sky.
Our condolences to his family at this difficult time.
Howling ‘Laud’ Hope and all in the Loony Party

West Lancashire By-Election on the 9th Feb

Party Leader Howling ‘Laud’ Hope was our Loony candidate. Once again, we didn’t win, but 210 people wanted us to represent them in Parliament.

Ormskirk, Skelmersdale and their surrounding areas made up the constituency.

With kind permission from Tim Martin I used ‘The Court Leet’, a Wetherspoon in Ormskirk as my constituency meeting place.

I was there for 10 days, meeting up with Red Rocket Ron from Liverpool and doing ‘The Hustings’. We had some fun and I’m still smiling now about significant incidents.

The count night went as planned apart from not winning.
The Flying Brick, R U Seerius, Lady Helen Back, Red Rocket, Suzy Q, Christopher Robin, Sir Archibald Stanton and his best mate Gilly from Dewsbury, and local party member Nick Antrobus from Warrington, all joined me at the count.

Once again, stars of the show, everybody wanted their photo taken with us.

I would also like to mention the Red Lion in Newburgh, Newbold. Chris and his team looked after us very well.

I reckon at least 100 votes came from that pub alone.
Where will the next one be? We don’t know as yet. If and when, you might want to join in? You’ll be very welcome!

Howling ‘Laud’ Hope – Loony party Leader.

OFFICIAL Birthday Honours

Believe it or not, a person used to have achieved a tome of work, often beyond their relevant field, to be acknowledged with an MBE, OBE or Knighthood. Services in the music industry were virtually unheard of until 1967 when Her Majesty took Screaming Lord Sutch’s advice by awarding members of The Beatles with an OBE. In recent years, merely doing their job by winning a few races, tennis matches or being a well regarded party politician or donor by the Government of the day will ensure sutch recognition. It has long been a mystery to us that, alongside our Spiritual Leader, a radio pioneer who since his 1964 pirate days and then became the first DJ on the newly created BBC Radio 1 in 1967, has as yet, received any Royal Gong for nearly 60 years of duty to broadcasting alongside his seldom reported vast amount of work undertaken for charity projects.
As the party renowned for being ahead of the political rabble, and to commemorate his 80th Birthday, we are proud to confirm that Lord Tony Blackburn is now our OFFICIAL Minister of Disc Jockeys having FUN
We trust that this honour will be noted and duly rectified in future by the Governments ‘Honours Committee by finally recommending him for a Knighthood.

A.Gent Chinners & TISWAS Bunny on Lord James Whale Show

The process of our annual New Years Honours in late December each year, usually begins in July, with a shortlist of 8-10 people who we deem to be either worthy or overlooked by the other facility that dispenses gongs & titles. These are whittled down to a final 3 that will be ordained as Lord’s or Lady’s with their own Ministry to run, once we form the next Government of the Loonyverse. A mere couple of hours after announcing Lord Brian May, others promptly followed suit by making him a Knight of the Realm, so once again, the Loony Party are ahead of the curve! Not wanting a repeat of this blatant copy-cat skullduggery, the process for our 2024 honours began 6 months early on 2nd Jan. Fortunately, TalkTV had contacted Loony HindQuarters, requesting a party spokesperson to appear on their James Whale Show on Sat 7th Jan, so the decision was made and A.Gent Chinners was despatched to London Bridge with TISWAS Bunny duly advised to find a Zoom spot in his remote warren that actually worked.

Sadly Lord Whale was feeling a tad under the weather on the day, but the show must go on with Ash, Lizzie Cundy & Chuck Thomas filling his void with aplomb. Chinners & Bunny were given a seriously hard grilling for nearly 45 minutes on the various issues of the day, with both giving straight, honest & comprehendable responses to each question thrown at them, thus confirming that neither of them presently have the require skills to become an MP in the foreseeable future.

Lord James Whale duly returned to the studio the following week and was finally presented with his certificate as our OFFICIAL ‘Minister of Saving Whales in Wales’.
A.Gent Chinners would like to thank all the panel, crew and security staff at TalkTV for their hospitality, with a special mention to Mark Runner who looked after him so admirably all evening!
