BNP get fewer votes than the Monster Raving Loony Party
They're a political joke. Literally.
The Monster Raving Loony Party exist to satirise how bad British politics is.
Their madcap policies include storing private data in the Prime Minister's underwear drawer, making terrorists wear bells so we know where they are, and allowing all animals to use zebra crossings.
So imagine being beaten by this band of pranksters...
You can imagine the British National Party must be smarting today because the Loonies wiped the floor with them.
The far-right group finished with a dismal 1,667 votes - even beaten by a party called Cannabis is Safer Than Alcohol (which we think could be an actual party with a disco and party hats).
Still, every cloud eh?
Wonder how many other political parties will come out of this election in profit. We haven't played their game and we are getting stronger!
