I confirm I will be standing (possibly slouching, or leaning) occasionally squatting or kneeling, but not lying, in the local by-election taking place on 1st August
I have been quite poorly this last few weeks, my doctor diagnosed a ‘sensible virus ‘ after reading this statement :
Just because I don’t care for the so-called ‘sensible’ parties doesn’t mean I don’t care for the community I live in. I am a Monster Raving Loony because they are the only Party that is on your side no matter what your political persuasion may be. We use humour to provoke political discussion.
People tell me that they don’t bother voting because nothing changes but the sensible parties love a bit of voter apathy…. the less people voting the less people they have to cater for….they can just carry on in a system of self-servitude.
It’s a fact, more people don’t vote than do. The none voters represent the majority, if that majority all voted for None of the Above, it would be a political mudslide, there really is nothing wrong with the occasional spot of serious loonyism, sometimes it’s the only thing that makes sense, I mean look at the mess we’re in; to quote…Clowns to the left of me Jokers to the Right
So I say, I am “None of the Above’ , Don’t don’t vote; if you don’t know what to think, vote Pink!
The Brecon & Radnor by-election is on 1st August 2019……..
When our standing MP Chris Davies (Tory) was found guilty of fraud he did not get sacked or even have to resign. The judge said “It seems shocking that when confronted with a simple accounting problem you thought to forge documents. That is an extraordinary thing for a man with your position and your background to do.” Because he failed to do the honourable thing, we had, instead, the costly and time-consuming exercise of a recall petition, the result was that 19% of the electorate went out of their way, travelling to 1 of only 6 sites across the large expanse of Powys, to sign for his dismissal and the opportunity of a by-election. And here we are. The man fraudulently generated two invoices to cover the cost of photographs for his constituency office walls. He committed fraud when he was perfectly entitled to claim for them without doing so. Politicians these days are more loony than us experienced, qualified Loonies (although lacking the sense of humour 😉 ).
