Ex-England cricket captain Andrew Strauss has stated his desire to become a Tory MP. Joining the Tories suits Strauss as they seem to be run in the same way the England cricket team is, shite. Back and to the Left news are unsure as to how knowing what "Silly Point" is will help the current economic crisis.
Strauss has said he will bring "leadership, a strong work ethic and dedication" to the Tory party. All things he displayed when he walked away from the England cricket team after a couple of bad results.
Some slogans for Strauss subsequent election campaigns have been mooted including:
"I'm going to smash labour for six!"
"I want a four. Four more years of Tories!"
"LBW- Labour Breeds Wankers"
Not the catchiest of slogans we know.
It is expected that he will have a tough stance on immigration and will want to impose stricter laws on people coming into the country. Unless you're a naturalised South African playing for the England cricket team.
