Raving loonies stand at election

The Monster Raving Loony Party are likely to field a candidate for the Mid-Derbyshire constituency after announcing four of their members would go to the polls across the county at the 2015 General Election.

The madcap group also vowed to ban all greyhound racing to help “stop the country going to the dogs” during their annual conference in Matlock Bath.

Member John ‘RU Seerius’ Brewer, of Belper, said: “We are strong believers in foundation hospitals. If they don’t have foundations, how are they going to stand up?”
