Standing for parliament - update!

After a bit of phoning around, I've discovered I can stand in Cambridge.

This could be fun!

DO IT!

Now that's a campaign I WOULD support wholeheartedly. I'd even come down on the train and help you out.

That'd annoy that bell end Holby.

No! Don't stand in Cambridge!

OH is standing there. Very unlikely that two "non big three" candidates will do any more than split the same vote.

Is there no-where else?

And on this of all days, eh?

We should go for the set. All we need now is a big red Hulk, a guy dressed as Rab C Nesbitt, a Slug, and a podgy Greek baby.

Now THAT would be a stage sight for the returning officer.

I am Stan said...

And a Zulu in full battle dress...hahaha!

Demetriou,

You been taken for a mug and let the cat out of the bag. You've never stopped whinging about Holborns participation in the forthcoming election, telling him on numerous occasions his decision to run is an un-winnable farce.

Yet the moment Obo says he'll oppose him, you've quickly changed your tune and now back his alleged candidacy in full view of a mocking blogospere.

What a twat.....

I'm with the slug here.

And I hear you are the baby Jesus as well....

Nice one Obo!

Cambridge is going to be the only place to be.....

Ha ha, awesome. I wonder if any other Cambridge candidates be coming out of the woodwork today?

In any case, I can't wait to hear the results, it will be Monty Python's election night sketch.

"But this time, an additional 'very silly' candidate is standing who could split the silly vote. And now, the results."

"Fenella Allwoman-Shortlist", sensible party, 2358 votes.

"Obo the Clown", silly party, 2357 votes.

"Old Holborn", very silly party, 2 votes.

Dazed and Very Confused. What a prick. I criticised Holby because he is a proven self-serving ego-maniac who has decided to join hands with a party that forms an alliance with right wing nationalists and authoritarian right wing Christians.

Obo is going independent. And he is far less shameless as a blogger. The differences are immense.

Run along, Holby running dog, you're boring me.

And Mr Puddlecote - less of the podgy pal! I'm proper toned, me!

The substantive difference for me is that OH is lot of a fucking twat who just happens to be ranting in the right direction. But you just know there is no great ideological conviction or serious thought, he just lets fly a lot of shit and some of it will stick with his anti-statist readers. But of a lot of it is still pure shit.

Obnoxio however is a seriously switched on bloke who can effortlessly dip into first principles while using 13 subtle variables of the word fuck and highlighting a vaguely meaningful point about the slide in society.

JD: Oops. I was talking about Mr E (I assumed with the name but now I think about it ...), I forgot about your balkan genealogy. Apologies.

J Demetriou said...

KingBingo - yep.

Dick - no worries

Obo - you suckered me.

Dazed - still a cunt

Me - God.
