Would a SAHM with a wee bit of time please find the sight and do a link. They are hilarious especially:

Inviting Euro to join the pound

and the 99p coin to save on change

Thank you!

yeah love this one too:

Tax credits will be paid to nice people. There will be a “total bastard” tax for everyone else.

Gwenick Wed 20-Apr-05 11:36:15

In reaction to the old adage, “Children are so honest” we intend to reduce the age of standing for parliament from 21 to 5.

Gwenick Wed 20-Apr-05 11:36:46

Pram lanes will be created in all shopping centres.

Bright pupils will be provided with dimmer switches to prevent them distracting the rest of the class.

Gwenick Wed 20-Apr-05 11:38:21

The Millennium Bridge will be made wobbly again, by building a pub at either end.

Gwenick Wed 20-Apr-05 11:38:59

Due to the government’s policy of opening pubs 24
Immigration: everyone wanting to come and live in the UK will be made welcome, so long as they are over the age of 85 and accompanied by both parents.

OMG this is SOOOOO Funny

All WMD’s (weapons of Mass Distraction) will be made highly visible so that we can find them.

like the 99p coin

awww there is no candidate for my area!

this is great
"Our team of experts has decided that Income Tax has not proved popular with the public and will therefore be abolished. It was started in order to finance the Napoleonic war in 1799 and we now believe that the time is right to announce the cessation of hostilities with Napoleon. Some of the money left in the coffers will be used to fill in our part of the Channel Tunnel in case no one has mentioned it to the French. Any remaining money will be strategically placed on a horse at the 3-30 at Haydock Park at odds of at least 12/1 in order to see us through until the next election. Income Tax will be officially replaced by people lending the government a bob or two at the end of the week when we’re a bit skint. "

In future the National Anthem will be ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ as sung by Morecambe and Wise. It is quicker, more tuneful and people know the words.

if you missed it................

Marina Thu 21-Apr-05 14:36:26

I think I may have just found my party, some of these suggestions are eminently sensible IMO. Especially Bring Me Sunshine...

JanH Thu 21-Apr-05 16:27:33

We pledge to fight the general election on an invisible platform so that people cannot see the floors in our policies.

JanH Thu 21-Apr-05 16:28:39

Any MP whose constituency sells off a school playing field for development will be required to relinquish their own back garden as a replacement sports facility for the school.

Marina Thu 21-Apr-05 16:29:24

I'll say it again, full of common sense! Why is this excellent document not getting the press exposure it merits...

JoolsToo Thu 21-Apr-05 16:30:32

sorry Michael I've found a new party

jodee Thu 21-Apr-05 16:44:58

Darn it ... if I was still living in Croydon I could have voted for the Shadow Minister for Chocolate!

Marina Thu 21-Apr-05 16:47:10

Sooner or later you were going to regret that relocation...
A bit that they aren't fielding enough candidates to qualify for an election broadcast. Looks like we'll be seeing one from the BNP though

jodee Thu 21-Apr-05 18:30:30

I'll be with you, Marina. In fact, think the broadcast his going to be shown in the next half hour, according to their website (I didn't spend long there, gave me the shivers).

Twiglett Thu 21-Apr-05 18:35:34

ahem skibunnyflummy "Would a SAHM with a wee bit of time please find the sight and do a link. "?????

WTF??? you sound like a stone-age DH there

some people might think that people who work outside the home might have more time to post links

right, am getting down from my high horse

good post otherwise though

FLUM Tue 26-Apr-05 14:11:38

Sorry Twiglett. I will be joining the ranks of SAHM next month and hope to spend most of my time reclining with a G&T and if it ain't like that I will be writing a strongly worded letter to my MP.

logic Tue 26-Apr-05 14:38:45

We got the loony manifesto from our local candidate through our door this morning. Fantastic. Dh says that our candidate stands on the main road every morning at rush hour waving a giant inflatable banana and wearing a huge hat. I want to vote for him!

DickWhittingtonsCat Thu 28-Apr-05 14:12:11

I have got a permanent postal vote in case I am out of town on polling day with work, so I have to vote this week. Once upon a time (1997) I was a Labour local election candidate but now I am so fed up that I was going to do a Tory protest vote (it is between Labour and Lib Dem where we live and I feel totally negative about both of them, but for different reasons) but what joy to see a Monster candidate on the ballot paper!!!
