Al Murray, otherwise known as the Pub Landlord whilst performing his stand up act on stage, has created the Free United Kingdom Party to challenge UKIP leader Nigel Farage in South Thanet during this May’s general election.
Al Murray decided to create the Free United Kingdom Party as he said ‘It seem to me that the UK is ready for a bloke waving a pint around, offering common sense solutions’. The Pub Landlord has even gone as far as to promise to lock up the unemployed, run Greece from Kent County Council and introduce a demilitarized zone between North and South Thanet.
Al Murray is well known for his love of all things British and goes on to state immigration is increasing because ‘this is the greatest country in the world’.
The Pub Landlord, who is often pictured with a pint in his hand, has visited the area recently including Margate where he poked fun at other parties on Twitter with a smart use of the ‘Dreamland’ theme park sign. He also visited nearby Ramsgate Brewrey and tried the local beer.
What do you think of Al Murray running for election in South Thanet? Do you think it is a waste of time and will steal votes from parties that deserve them or will it draw more attention to those who may not vote and now will?
