Can you guess the name of the UKIP Mayoral Candidate in London?

GAMMONS

LOL. You could not make it up


For anyone reading this who does not understand the reference....
The term refers in particular to the colour of a person's flushed face when expressing their strong opinions, as compared to the type of pork of the same name.[1][2] It is defined in this context by the Oxford English Dictionary as "various parasynthetic adjectives referring to particularly reddish or florid complexions".[3]

In 2018, it became particularly known as a term to describe either those on the political right or those who supported Brexit.

7. Not to mention..

(Nutty) Nuttall, (Batty) Batten, and Bull(shit). And the MEP, Mike Hookem, who did indeed have an all-too-powerful right hook.

3. For anyone interested, here's a primer on the 20 mayoral race candidates:

A Race to the Bottom: The Weird World of the 2021 London Mayoral Election

Since the first contest back in 2000, the London Mayoral elections have attracted some of the more colourful personalities from the fringes of political life – and this year’s contest looks like a bumper offering.

The smorgasbord of talent runs from the incumbent Mayor, Labour’s Sadiq Khan – currently enjoying a whopping 26-point lead over his nearest rival – to former boxers, recidivist deposit losers, religious evangelists, vloggers, comedians, failed actors-turned-failed singers, conspiracy theorists, a man with a bucket on his head, and a drill MC from south London in a balaclava.

Running for Mayor isn’t cheap. Even before candidates can start campaigning, they are required to put down a £10,000 deposit and pay another £10,000 to get their manifesto in the booklet that is sent to every London home. To get the deposit back, they have to win 5% of the vote. But, of the 19 candidates running in this May’s election, four look likely to secure a 95% share in the first round – meaning that the other 16 candidates are quite likely in it simply to lose it.

As a Londoner, I wanted to know who these people are, what their motives might be, and what all this might say about the state of our capital in CoronaBrexit times.

4. I saw a bus on my street today

With some random blokes face on it... never heard of him and I think he should have saved his money!

Sadiq is going to Mayor for another 4 years.

5. It certainly looks like it.

The election's turned over quite a few stones in the capital, though! Blimey.

We have a similar situation in some of our Glasgow Holyrood constituencies this election.

6. The details about Gammons there are eye-popping.

Though it looks like he'll be splitting the "complete barking nutter" vote with Piers “THE AIM IS A WORLD POPULATION CULL (‘people cause #CO2 problem’) by their mass vaccination plan containing poison” Corbyn, and Brian "friend of David Icke, inspired by reading American Psycho" Rose.

When there are 3 candidates who make Count Binface, Winston McKenzie and the leader of the Freedom’s Ark Church look moderate and sane, you know you're deep in la-la territory.

8. That's a whole lot of crazy

Incidentally, 'American Psycho' has been my name for Trump ever since 2016.
