Labour fourth after Loony Party

I think I image have now heard it all. The election result just published for St Ives in Huntingdonshire has Labour coming a humiliating fourth after the Official Monster Raving Loony Party candidate Lord Toby Jug.

Lord Jug clearly impressed the electorate in ways which the two Labour candidates couldn’t. The two council seats were won by Conservatives in a sweeping victory, with Lib Dems second.

Lord Toby Jug, Cambridgeshire’s first Official Monster Raving Loony Party Candidate, was celebrating his best ever result in decades of political campaigning by winning 566 votes – well ahead of Labour’s two candidates who finished last.

“I am absolutely chuffed,” said Lord Toby, a musician from St Ives, in the Cambridge Evening News.

“People in St Ives have voted for the sanest candidate.

“I think it sends out the message that people in the community are dissatisfied with politics at the moment. The man in the street just doesn’t trust them any more.”

How much worse can it get for Labour? Gordon Brown will surely soon run out of MPs he can shuffle about for his Cabinet?

  1. Good for Lord Toby! I keep thinking, “Surely GB has to go now” but he doesn’t!

  2. Certainly a message there, isn’t there? Still it is just the turning of the tide.

  3. And here’s another message from a jubilant Toby:

    “HI Ellie, i’m pleased to have you as a friend on facebook. The reaction to my result as been brilliant, but i felt that i ran a better campaign than labour locally, so i was not shocked to beat them.When your at the bottom like us loonies, there is only one way to go and that is up.
    Toby x”

  4. Right now it seems Labour ARE the Monster Raving Loony Party.

  5. Just had a Facebook message from Lord Toby:
    Subject:

    HI FROM lORD TOBY JUG

    WHAT A GREAT DAY FOR DEMOCRATIC LOONYISM IN ST.IVES, SCREAMING LORD SUTCH WILL BE SMILING FROM THE HEAVENS AT ME.
    LORDTOBY JUG

    I doubt if Gordon will….

  6. Now we shouldn’t be too hasty to misjudge Lord Toby.

    Brown should have gone long ago. And he won’t go until he’s literally shoved out of the door.

    Cameron could force the General Election that this country so desperately needs by making his MPs stand down.

    Why doesn’t he ?

    There couldn’t be a clearer message could there?

    But.. well, see my latest blog post.
