Your candidate speaks

Mr LF Barfe pictured outside NOTA Waveney Campaign Headquarters, quite recently

Well, if you live in the Waveney constituency he does.

Mr L.F. Barfe, noted commentator, author, blogger and resident of Cheeseford is standing for Parliament, on the None Of The Above ticket.

In a recent interview with the BBC,

"Waveney candidate Louis Barfe says a vote for him is a last resort; when people want to vote, but none of the candidates appeals. "With NOTA standing, they have an option to register their dismay and disaffection," he says.

He says that in the unlikely event of him getting in, his one policy would be to force a by-election within six months in which he would not stand.

"The problem with politicians is not what they promise, it's what they deliver," he said. "So by promising to deliver nothing, I'm the best man for the job I don't want."

That is completely brilliant. Can I reproduce it on my blog too?

Hi Matt, having taken the liberty of editing Mr Barfe's picture and also hacking the BBC's words, at this point my say-so is probably a redundant point!

Hope he don't mind...

I'll see you all in court. Or something. No, feel free, both of you.

Back in court, don't you mean? Heh heh.

Louis Barfe said...

Back in court, but not in the same position.

Or indeed, in the same court.
