I had drafted a PooterGeek post of semi-exaggerated biographies of the actual candidates for the upcoming Haltemprice and Magnercarter by-election, but it all seems so feeble now that David Icke is in the running. Yes, Britain’s leading conspiracy theorist and retired messiah says he’s going to join the circus.

By the way, I think it reflects well on our democracy that the voters of Haltemprice and Ainshent-Freedums have a choice of displacing Davis, who, to his credit, has had more than one real job in the real world, with one of two pub landlords or a beauty queen (amongst others), rather than having to choose between various lifelong hacks.
