Most entertaining was Captain Beany.
Captain Beany doesn't make empty promises - he is stupid but not that stupid!
'MPs have been living the Good Life on expenses while we have all struggled to make ends meet.
“Don't be a meany vote for Beany!
More serious was the Landless Peasants
They want to:
Nationalise Water Supply – Water is a fundamental need for life, a nations government should have few duties beyond its safe supply. What is taxation for but to provide essentials for the people who pay them.
Energy For Every Home – there are 24 million residences in the UK. Fitting each one with modest wind and solar power systems will cost less than Trident. This will give every home its own light and power. If you need more you pay for it, grid electricity will be taxed.
Equal Partners With Business – Corporation tax will be set at 50%. Those who wish to profit from the people of this land are welcome…as partners. Individuals and small businesses will be exempt.
Land For Peasants – Social land , like social housing, will be made available to those who wish to support themselves by their own means. To be part of our nation will mean the right to part of that nation. In a Landocracy all the people share rights and responsibilities to the land of their nation, not just a few.
The True English Poetry Party I think he is publicising poetry, rather than having policies.
The best bit of the show was Readings Howard Thomas (Common Sense Party) saying 'were not nutters, were a ***** political party'. They ignored his anti science and anti immigrant policies though. And accepted that his policies were decided by the voters; how many of the over 70,000 West Reading voters went to his website to express an opinion? I wonder how much it cost to build the land submarine and the boat that looks like a submarine. As a campaigner for transparency in Politics, Howard is curiously silent on this. His policies seem similar to Ukip, I expect he will split the Ukip vote, which may help me in Reading West.
Best of a Bad Bunch 'stand for honesty, decency and democracy and we do not believe that we are being well served in that department by any of the major parties. Part of this is in the very nature of the party system itself with whips telling MPs how to vote and MPs voting as they are told (regardless of the best interests of their constituents) in order to further their careers.'
No one would object to energy saving light bulbs if they actually worked. They don’t. In fact the idea that the old (working) bulbs are illegal under EC rules is not true but nevertheless we have these substandard items foisted upon us. When someone then decides to introduce an energy tax for using energy saving light bulbs then you are going to want someone representing you that is prepared to stand up for fairness and common sense even if they are branded as not caring about the planet, an unjustifiable but inevitable response to common sense and the idea of fairness by rabid greens.Perhaps they should team up with Howard!
Sadly they missed the Roman Party Ave!
