It seems the country is ready to vote for a bloke waving a pint around offering common sense solutions.

Al Murray the pub landlord

Pity he won`t get elected!........Will he?

I'm moving to South Thanet now! One of the manifesto pledges is to reinstate the original size and recipe for Creme Eggs..... Gets my vote grin

Sorry, I must be odd, thought it was a video for the C.R.A.P party.

Has anyone ever seen any of Al Murrays programmes about Germany? I was quite surprised when I first saw them on BBC4 [I believe his family are originally from Germany [?]] because I'd never seen his shows and assumed that, with his alter ego name he was a comedian of the Roy Chubby Brown ilk.

DH will be requesting a move to South Thanet (wherever that is) for the 1p pint. grin

From what I have seen, heard and read, he seems to be quite a decent chap.

Brilliant. I wonder how many BNP and EDL members will vote for him because they think he's genuine grin

He went to Oxford and read History, so if he does get elected (!!) he would probably be no worse than the others, but funnier! x

Where is South Thanet? I'm off there asap. Love the Pub Landlord. Up the FUKP, and Carlisle for the cup!!!

Love his solution to the A&E crisis.......'anyone who turns up at A&E who isn't a genuine accident or emergency to be shipped off to a random hospital and practised on'

Teetime Thu 15-Jan-15 08:34:01

He's a clever bloke - love his satirical take on life.

They have just shown a very small bit of the clip and are now discussing this on Daily Politics. Not that it was a deep thinking debate and only lasted about 3 minutes.

I like Al Murray , I could be tempted. grin

Anne58 Thu 15-Jan-15 13:05:06

One of the bookmakers is offering 66/1 on him getting elected and evens on him beating the Lib Dems!

Jane10 Thu 15-Jan-15 18:27:24

I'd vote for him! What a laugh

Iam64 Thu 15-Jan-15 18:49:54

This is great news. He'll out Farage - Farage grin

durhamjen Thu 15-Jan-15 23:40:40

Vampire, there aren't many far right left to vote for him according to this article.

Unless they all live in Thanet, of course.
