The political shenanigans being played by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and the furore surrounding them which has led to some analysts to suggest an October General Election might be on the cards, could well benefit one party that has, until now, proved something of a novelty - the Monster Raving Loony Party.

Johnson made a statement outside number 10 Downing Street on Monday, promising that the country would, indeed, leave the EU on 31 October, and that there would not be a General Election before that.

This, say analysts, was to force MPs to vote against him, to veto his 'no-deal' Brexit plans, to have a snap election - which the Conservative Party would lose - and to have the Labour party claim power, so that they, and not the Tories, would have to oversee the nightmare that is Brexit.

The electorate, however, have had enough of political games, the 'playground offensives', and the rampant dishonesty currently on display, and are likely to avoid voting for any of the tried-and-tested 'big parties', and many of them may well plump for a party that they feel they can, at least, trust.

Monster Raving Loony Party spokesman, Tom Smith, said:

"We've had a major re-think, and become a bit more mainstream. It seems that the other parties have tried to model themselves on how we used to be, with the ways they are breaking with convention, and dragging British politics through the mud. This may be our moment."
