General Election Special

Here is Monty Python from 1970  parodying TV coverage of the general election

 

 

  Wikipedia notes “In the 1981 Crosby by-election, candidate John Desmond Dougrez-Lewis, a 22-year-old student from Hayes in Greater London, changed his name by deed poll to Tarquin Fin-tim-lin-bin-whin-bim-lim-bus-stop-F’tang-F’tang-Olé-Biscuitbarrel. Thus the name was printed on the ballot paper, although the Returning Officer simply referred to him as “Tarquin Biscuitbarrel”. He received 223 votes and finished in fifth out of nine candidates.”

Fancy meeting some equally  unusual candidates during a fun election themed street game?
