We firstly intend to sack anyone who writes such nonsense as the opening statement, and pledge to
fight the general election on an invisible platform so that people cannot see the floors in our policies.
We are pleased that the Government has stolen our loony policy of
discouraging binge drinking by proposing to open pubs for 24 hours and
now feel that the public see that a vote for the Official Monster
Raving Loony Party is no longer a wasted vote. We are preparing for
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.
We will issue a 99p coin to save on change.
The Official Monster Raving Loony Party will not join the
single European currency. We will invite all Europeans countries to
JOIN THE POUND.
Rich people should be taxed to pay for the printing of money, as they use most of it.
Tax credits will be paid to nice people. There will be a “total bastard” tax for everyone else.
We feel that a £57,000 a year salary is quite ample for the
average person to survive on and that the £118,000 expenses that MP’s
also manage to wangle is far too much. The expenses money will in
future be distributed to the poor and needy so that they can waste it
Any Home Secretary claiming to have more children than necessary will be made to run the House Of Commons Crèche.
Any cabinet minister found telling lies will be shot across the English
Channel in a high velocity circus cannon to save time and first class
travel expenses. Top British engineers will be employed to plot the
correct trajectory. A European funded net will be set up strategically
in front of the European parliament so that when the errant MP hits it,
he or she will bounce through the second floor window where they will
be handed champagne and canapé at a reception hosted by Leon Brittan
and Peter Mandelson.
To help finance the above mentioned net, when it is not required it
will be hired out to the London production of ‘Chitty Chitty Bang
Bang!’ for the child catcher.
In reaction to the old adage, “Children are so honest” we intend to reduce the age of standing for parliament from 21 to 5.
We pledge to reduce class sizes by making the pupils sit closer to one
another and issuing them with smaller desks. 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. All future Deputy Prime Ministers will be required to be
fluent in at least one language to encourage the education system.
In the interests of fair education policy, under a loony
government all children will automatically be given full marks in their
Bright pupils will be provided with dimmer switches to prevent them distracting the rest of the class.
SAT’s tests will be abolished and replaced by Gordon Ramsey style cookery lessons and Rolf Harris art classes.
All children will be given two birthdays like the Queen.
Any child who is cleverer than their teacher will be allowed to take
over the class and the teacher will stand at the back with a dunce’s
hat on. He or she will then be on half pay until he or she has learnt
enough to regain the upper ground. This is our policy for child
The number 13 will be abolished due to its longstanding
unpopularity. The bus to Acton North will now not have a number on it
but not much else will be affected. Therefore if you see a bus with no
number on it, it will be going to Acton North. Please remember this for
and Oxford will be relocated to Blackpool and Bognor Regis leaving the
other Universities with a chance of a bigger intake.
All students will be awarded The Louis Pasteur degree for the scientific research into the growth of mould.
We intend to make free university tuition available to all students named Grant.
Any student who says the word “Like” when not grammatically
called for, as in, “Hey, I’m .. Like, going down the… like, pub”, or,
“I was, like, don’t do that” will be made to go and stay with George
Bush for a week in order to discourage them from other stupid
Relocation of the Houses of Parliament
Houses of parliament will be demolished and replaced by a mobile
parliament. This will allow MPs to be picked up in the mornings if
their cars won’t start. It will also allow the public to see parliament
at work and members will be able to wave to the public as it is going
along. It will also cut out any necessity to have regional assemblies
as it can park up at different towns and villages throughout the year.
On the old site of parliament a large statue of Screaming Lord Sutch
will be erected and a loony village will be built where it will be
obligatory to enjoy yourself. Pogo sticks will be provided free of
We will replace the House of Lords with the House of Cards, to make it easier for the Government to deal with.
Portional Representation will be introduced in England. One vote, one Raffle Ticket.
Government Whips will only be used if a politician has been really bad. Minor offences should receive the political slipper.
In order to combat motorway congestion we will immediately close all
motorways to all vehicles with the exception of bicycles to encourage
our green policy and fitness. Any bicycles with more than 3 gears will
also be banned for safety reasons. Apart from anything else this will
allow police to get on with catching burglars. Traffic cops who are not
intelligent enough to cope with proper police work will be allowed to
wear their uniforms for a transitional period before being re trained
Pram lanes will be created in all shopping centres.
All cars will be converted to run on Venos to help stop congestion.
4 wheel drive vehicles will only be allowed to drive off road,
therefore stopping mothers picking up their children from school in
them when they only live 100 yards down the road. They will also be
wrapped in bubble wrap to make them safer.
All trains will be fitted with an automatic braking system that will
function as soon as it sees red; this will include people who have been
completely enraged by having to stand waiting on a platform for 3
Rather than to attempt re-opening disused railway lines we will put
sound systems every 500 yards along the disused tracks which will play
sound effects of old steam trains to keep railway loonies happy. When
they choose to walk along the old railways nostalgically, men will be
employed to throw buckets of soot over them every so often.
Drivers will be allowed to drive over
roundabouts when there’s nothing about. This will make driving through
Milton Keynes much more fun.
All speed cameras will be abolished and replaced by a new device fitted
to your cars which will automatically slow down to the speed limit when
driven though an infra-red beam. This will also apply to police cars;
their device will be set to 5 mph though built up areas.
Traffic wardens will be re-named Dick Turpin because, let’s face it, it’s daylight robbery.
Any kerbs that are caught crawling will be arrested and the council will be fined £100.000 pounds.
We fully back the government’s policy of discouraging binge drinking by
opening pubs for 24 hours. We believe that 24 hours is not quite long
enough and propose to make the length of a day 32 hours long so that
the pubs can be open for even longer. We also rather like the
government idea of coming down hard on drugs by legalising them.
Regarding tobacco it will now only be legal to smoke it with cannabis.
Anyone found to have a ciggy not containing any cannabis will be made
to walk to Coventry with a stone in their shoe, unless they come from
Coventry in which case an alternative major city will be substituted on
the advice of a committee who will meet far too often and eat dope
Anyone caught breaking the law will be made to mend it.
Any child found breaking the Auntie Social Order will be sent to their Uncles for a good clip around the ear.
All police will be made to say HELLO, HELLO, HELLO when making an arrest, this will treble the police force.
Police helmets will be re introduced and made even sillier. The higher
a police rank then the higher their hat becomes. At Christmas they will
be able to put flashing lights on them and generally decorate them.
Once they have achieved the rank of Chief Constable the height of their
hats will not allow them to leave their office, which they don’t
We will set up an enquiry to find out why there’s a Polar bear on Fox’s Glacier mints.
The Millennium Bridge will be made wobbly again, by building a pub at either end.
All computers will carry a hazard warning sign saying “Please do NOT
forget to open your window before you throw this computer out of it”.
Due to the government’s policy of opening pubs 24 hours a day, a loony
government for public safety will make the wearing of seat belts
compulsory in all pubs, and pub tables will be fitted with airbags so
you can fall over drunk without damaging your head (this does not offer
protection from your wife attacking you with the rolling pin when you
get home drunk).
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

Fox hunting will be re introduced under the “one hound – one dog” policy to make it a bit fairer.
All food shall be clearly labelled “Recommended for Oral Use”.
All fast food will be clearly labelled “May contain traces of real food”.
With the growth of the motorist’s nightmare, the HUMPS, town farm cows
WILL BE RE-INTRODUCED, as when they are going for milking they will
block roads admirably and keep the speeding traffic down.
To solve the increasing obesity problem and global warming, all TVs and
home computers must be run only by exercycle generators. A phase-in
period of this major remedy will be allowed - maybe 5 to 5m minutes.
We will ask the Tooth Fairy to bring back all our good teeth and stop the rot in your Dental services.
The Care in Care Homes needs to be addressed, under an OMRLP
government. Cocktails of drugs used to keep the elderly quiet will be
banned and replaced by Fruit-Cocktail, Oxtail and prawn cocktail.
All foreign G.Ps in England and Wales will
be taught the local dialect so they know when their patients feel
Jiggered (Tired), Manky (Rough), Gipping (Vomiting) or have got somit
rang with their Fizog (Face).
To prevent congestion on hospital wards, all hospital visits will be
cut to 30 minutes a day, with the exception of Coco the clown to
entertain the nurses.
All WMD’s (weapons of Mass Distraction) will be made highly visible so that we can find them.
Any politician wanting to start a war will be shipped off to the
country in question with a bag of conkers. They can then conker the
The white cliffs of Dover will be painted blue to camouflage our islands.
Buckingham Place will be defended by triffids, cultivated by Prince Charles.
Anyone criticising defence will be made to mend it with de hammer and de nails.
Anyone believing that their pet understands every word that they say to
them will be asked to make the pet write a thesis to prove it.
It will be legal to keep Tapirs. People will be encouraged to keep them
as pets because they are very funny and will cheer up the population no
Anyone keeping crocodiles will have to have their teeth removed. But the crocodiles won’t.
We will raise the old age pension to £2,000 a week for every pensioner
who, for a period of more than 6 days, manages not to bore everyone
witless about how brilliant their grandchildren are. To ease the
transition period, special centres will be built where they may go once
a week and rattle on about them. Unemployed people will be paid a ‘Bore
Allowance’ of £27-50 a day to sit in front of them pretending to give a
damn and saying “Mmm, how interesting” and “Really, well I never” and
other statements as determined by the government. Tea and biscuits will
be provided and the Samaritans will be on hand to council any of the
‘Bore Allowance’ volunteers.
Meals will be served on plates not on wheels.
Norman Wisdom will be made Minister of Pensions. Pensions will be
raised by 100% on inflation, because I am nearly at retirement age
Old age will be made officially 5 years older than you are.
All O.A.Ps will have the luxury of a woolly muff and free electric chairs
All footballers will be made to wear slippers to make the game more interesting.
Boxing will be made obligatory for people we don’t like.
The Olympic Games will only allow British sports people to take part in order to help our gold medal chances.
In view of the new sports being introduced into the Olympic Games we
intend to make ‘Synchronized farting’ a national sport and to
reintroduce cheese rolling.
- Making everyone a lottery winner
- Providing beer for school children
- Giving everyone a quid who votes for us
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. On state occasions Prince Philip will juggle his spectacles up
and down and say, “Hey!” before the whole of the The Royal family do
the dance off at the end. If the music can not be found because it was
left in the pub then it may be substituted by ‘The Hippo Song’ by
Flanders and Swann.
Vote for insanity, you know it makes sense!
