Eastleigh voters spoilt for choice.

You lucky people! Eastleigh voters that is. Talk about spoilt for choice. Mind you, I'm not sure what kind of turn out the pundits are predicting for Thursday's by election but if the number of people that Channel 4 News were able to muster for last nights interrogation of the four main candidates is anything to go by it seems unlikely that there will be any crowd control issues. I think that Chan4 made a mistake in not substituting Harry Hill for Krishnan Guru-Murthy as anchor man but that's only my opinion of course. John O' Farrell gets way out in front in the "most interesting" category simply by being outed in the Mail as "The Sickest Man In Politics". Wow!  Who will prove the "stroppiest woman"- UKIP or Tory? I don't know but Harry Hill would have had a way of finding the answer: LibDem's Mike Thornton is a Business and Development Manager and a regular churchgoer. Fuck me Mike! Calm down. Calm down.  Oh well! I suppose that in the party of crooks, liars and fat gropers an honest but dull candidate is like the one eyed man in the kingdom of the blind. If I were an Eastleigh voter I think that it would be a toss up between Wessex Regionalists, TUSK, Elvis Loves Pets or possibly the Beer, Baccy and Crumpet Party. The rest of the field is made up of an assortment of worthy peaceniks, god botherers various, an English Democrat and the very laudable National Health Action. Did I mention Raving Loonies?

I have a vote in this constituency and will be voting for the Elvis Loves Pets Party. This candidate campaigned against Romney in the US elections cos Romney had tied his dog to the roof of his car. The party calls for lower vet's bills, opposes the bedroom tax and in his party broadcast reveals poetic talent in on the subject of Cameron. Eastleigh has an interesting history of MPs, which in my memory goes back to David Price (Tory) brother of Dennis Price (Jeeves).Downhill ever since. Last week some local teenagers put on a musical, Cats, did all the work themselves, no council finance or support from the bureaucrats, and the only candidate to turn up in the audience was the Monster Raving Looney bloke. The outsiders appear to represent the people. We should not knock them.
