The candidate, who famously stood against Theresa May in the 2017 General Election, revealed his plans on Friday night. He said “so many” people had “begged” him to run against the former Ukip leader, who recently unveiled his new Brexit Party. Mr Farage is bidding to be re-elected as the MEP for the South East England constituency.  Writing on Twitter, he said: “BREAKING NEWS: Since so many have begged me to run against Nigel Farage in the EU Parliament election on May 23, a clever Earthling set up this link for you to fund the cost of the pricey deposit.  “Will I agree to run if the goal is met? MY ANSWER: YES!” https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/242634/ea23b7ca-e19a-4adb-b886-ce256c2cbff5/image.png Lord Buckethead's list of promises when he was narrowly beaten by many thousands of votes in 2017 are inspiring and what the British dream of: MY 2017 MANIFESTO: Strong, not entirely stable, leadership 1. The abolition of the Lords (except me). 2. Full facial coverings to be kept legal, especially bucket-related headgear. 3. No third runway to be built at Heathrow: where we're going we don't need runways. 4. Ceefax to be brought back immediately, with The Oracle and other Teletext services to be rolled out by the next Parliament. 5. Regeneration of Nicholson's Shopping Centre, Maidenhead. 6. Buckethead on Brexit: a referendum should be held about whether there should be a second referendum. 7. Nuclear weapons: A firm public commitment to build the £100bn renewal of the Trident weapons system, followed by an equally firm private commitment not to build it. They're secret submarines, no one will ever know. It's a win win. 8. Nationalisation of Adele: in order to maximise the efficient use of UK resources, the time is right for great British assets to be brought into public ownership for the common good. This is to be achieved through capital spending. 9. A moratorium until 2022 on whether Birmingham should be converted into a star base.  10. Legalisation of the hunting of fox-hunters. 11. New voting age limit of 16 to be introduced. New voting age limit of 80 to be introduced too. 12. Katie Hopkins to be banished to the Phantom Zone. 13. Stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia. Start buying lasers from Lord Buckethead. 14. Prospective MPs to live in the seat they wish to represent for at least five years before election, to improve local representation in Parliament. 15. Free bikes for everyone, to help combat obesity, traffic congestion and bike theft. The hero we need. Vote Buckethead.
12. Katie Hopkins to be banished to the Phantom Zone. That alone is enough to get my vote if I were British.
My understanding is that you don't need to be British to vote for him, just from the same local galaxy cluster.
Not all heroes ware capes!... Well, this one does, but that is besides the point!
I thought this was gonna involve this guy for a second. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckethead
6. Buckethead on Brexit: a referendum should be held about whether there should be a second referendum. The definition of chaotic neutral
Hey, you can't be too cautious when asking the public to vote for things in a democracy, as it can be very undemocratic - what if they change their mind?
The best thing is that, while the manifesto was hilarious and purposefully absurd, I'd actually have more faith he'd stick to it than the Tories did their manifesto.
I actually would vote for Lord Buckethead aswell, he fits in amongst the muppets just fine.
Elmo was actually running on the same seat the OP picture was taken in, but you can't see him. Here you go: https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/242634/157f178e-e237-49b5-974e-56240de68c8c/image.png
Teletext?! I need to nationalize myself as british right the fuck now.
Oh yeah and Al Murray was running against Farage in that election. https://i2-prod.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article5659658.ece/ALTERNATES/s615b/MAIN-Farage-Loss.jpg
Please win a seat, as the only accurate predictor of Brexit to run in 2017 he clearly deserves one. He would be laughed at less in the EP than Farage is.
It will be great for jobs in the local area and I have it on good authority that Birmingham chavs make for excellent stormtroopers.
Lads you can't forget about Tim Farron up against Mr Fishfinger https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/298928/5d2ca23f-28b2-41d1-ba48-89f1b6e9f66f/_96418789_gettyimages-693935606.jpg
I didn't actually know independent candidates could stand in the Euro elections. He'll technically be running against the entire Brexit Party list, I also assume(?) we won't get a stage lineup of the candidates like in a general election
though ambitious, free bikes for everyone is actually a superb policy
That manifesto reminds me of this old meme: http://u.cubeupload.com/callumshell1/voteukip.jpg
