Is the puppeter to become the puppet?

A party simply known as the '? Party' are set to run for Government at the next general elections, surprisingly making no promises, appearances or statements until the ballot boxes close.

Under complete anonymity, someone or some group have thrown their hat, if they have one, into the ring to run the country. The general public have begun imagining whatever they want when it comes to the ? Party, and this could be more dangerous than hosting a Nick Griffin benefit gig in Bradford.

Established parties are calling this "a stunt" and "a joke" even though this tactic could defeat seasoned bullshitters and tax dodgers. Patrick Wintour of the Guardian has have warned the general public against voting for this new party but admire the tactics used.

"Something unknown to us is now more favourable than what we do know. The ? Party are not fabricating, spinning stories or altering figures on immigration. Today, a politician's bullshit is much like a relative with dreadful hygiene reaching across you at the dinner table. It's unnecessary and it fucking stinks but after a while you just accept it as part of life. However, I would warn against the country kicking this relative out as you could always get something much worse turning up!"

As expected, rumours are rife regarding the identity of the ? Party. Barack Obama, a John Major comeback and a group of comedians who regularly utilise the rule of three have all been suggested thus far. Regardless of the identity of the newest political party, the general public could be willing to gamble on Mugabe or Putin leading the country, rather than David Cameron or a Labour candidate who has seemingly misplaced his shoulders.
