The Mirror today published a list of parties they say we should consider if we are to keep the Conservatives out of power.
Due to the scaremongering by both Tories and Labour about the dangers of an hung parliament, The Mirror rationalises that there really isn't a "bat's chance" of a clear majority. However, remaining loyal to their socialist leanings, they feel unable to simply plump for the Lib Dem's as an alternative.
Political correspondent Ivan Astirugburn is at pains to say that voting for one of these parties will not lead them to be in government, but simply able to sway the balance of power.
The list, though not exhaustive, includes:
- The Party Party
- The Standing at the Back Dressed Stupidly and Looking Stupid Party
- The Happening Happy Hippy Party
- The Bin Laden Party
- The Minor European Countries Lager Producers Party
- The Flowerpot Men Party
- The Anarchist Pogoing Party
- The Underwater Yak Wrestlers Party
- The BNP
The BNP have reacted angrily to their inclusion in the list. The BNP's Secretary for Propaganda, Delvin Marmite, screamed, "Gott in Himmel! Donner und Blitzen! Britisher Pigdogs! How can you say ve haf anysing in common viz zees Left Ving losers?"
And in a statement released earlier today by the BNP Supreme Executive, they add, "Unlike most political parties, the BNP have the courage of their convictions. Inciting racial hatred, for example."
