Literally 2 candidates, who are no longer candidates, and who should never have been candidates in the first place.

 

Also, I missed the actual response to my question, just some waffle about how standing down for the Lexit Party is rational.

Improving the chances of a party committed to Brexit, rather than one committed to a 2nd referendum, doesn't seem a great strategy if remaining in the EU is your priority.

But you haven't explained why this principle applies solely to the Liberal Democrats.

Bring back CEEFAX... 

 

General election: Man who stood as Lord Buckethead changes name - and takes on Boris Johnson

Count Binface has vowed to bring back Ceefax if he beats Boris Johnson in Uxbridge and South Ruislip after changing his name due to a copyright issue

The man who stood as 'Lord Buckethead' in the 2017 general election has changed his name - and will take on Boris Johnson.

Comedian Jon Harvey, 39, from Lewisham, south east London, will stand against the Prime Minister in Uxbridge and South Ruislip as Count Binface - two years after he gained 249 votes against Theresa May.

 

He said he decided to drop the Buckethead name, which originated from a cult 1984 US film called Hyperspace, after a copyright tussle with the film's creator.

The Count, who gave his age as 5,965 galactic years, confirmed tonight that he will stand on a ticket promising to bring back Ceefax

 

And he challenged Boris Johnson's claim that his Brexit deal is "oven-ready", saying: "I say it is shop-soiled, past its sell-by-date and contains more than a trace of male bovine faeces. Surely the only way to unite the country is another referendum."

He told the Mirror: "I got my nominations through sheer galactic charisma and offering to rename Uxbridge's shopping centre."

 

Count Binface is still not the comedian's legal name - and neither was Lord Buckethead.

Instead of changing his name by deed poll, he stood under a little-known rule that means people can be referred to by their "commonly-used" name

 

When he was styling himself as Lord Buckethead, Mr Harvey became a cult hit in 2017 after appearing next to Theresa May at the Maidenhead election count.

He even went stateside, appearing on comedian Jon Oliver's US TV show.

But he decided to "renounce his peerage" after what he described as a wrangle over copyright involving the original film.

"I later suffered an unpleasant battle on the planet Copyright," he claimed tonight.

But on the bright side, the Count added: "I thought I'd give myself a promotion."

Only one party is claiming to be the party of remain, and they're demonstrating that by increasing the chances of Brexit definitely happening.

 

Is this your way of agreeing that Labour isn't a Remain party?

Look at the state of this :

 

 

Why mention those in the list  (just noticed Buckethead is also Binface now) but leave out Yace "Interplanetary Time Lord" Yogenstein? They're just trying to boost the others so Yace doesn't get an equal chance by the looks of it. Fuck this election.

So it's not a Remain party? A yes or no will suffice.

It's a party committed to a 2nd referendum. But again, if you're a party that prioristises remaining in the EU above all else, then doing stuff that ensures the exact opposite means you're either stupid or disingenuous.

It isn't necessarily a leave party either. Its a choice party. You know that. Why do you even bother

Right, well I can see I'm not going to get a straight answer to my question no matter how many times I ask it, so let's explore a different avenue.

 

It's well known that Labour's chances of winning a majority are practically zero, so in order to get that second referendum, they're going to need the votes of the Remain parties - Lib Dems, SNP, Plaid, Green and others - in order to achieve that.

 

So in not withdrawing for the Lib Dems in selected seats, aren't Labour "doing stuff that ensures the exact opposite" too?

And the Lib Dems have ruled out working with Labour under Corbyn, so why would they stand aside?

And the Swinson rhetoric is that she would rather Brexit than Corbyn as PM.
