Nigel Farage has a new opponent in the European Parliament elections, Lord Buckethead has announced he is to stand against Farage.
Lord Buckethead who claims to be an intergalactic space Lord famously stood against Theresa May in the 2017 general elections.
The intergalactic space Lord said “so many” have “begged” him to stand against the Farage the former UKIP leader.
Lord Buckethead wrote on Twitter, “BREAKING NEWS: Since so many have begged me to run against Nigel Farage in the EU Parliament election on May 23, a clever Earthling set up this link for you to fund the cost of the pricey deposit.
“Will I agree to run if the goal is met? MY ANSWER: YES!”
A message on his crowdfunding web page says, “Brexit. It’s so much wrong! Before 2015 most of us in Britain were happily getting on with our lives and arguing about things that matter such as the NHS, education, housing or whether a burger is also a sandwich or not, and so on.
“Lord Buckethead has agreed to stand for election — if together we can make it happen. You see, the European MEP elections will take place on the 23rd of May — yikes, next month — so we would just need to raise only £5000, to cover Lord Buckethead’s deposit, before this Thursday, April 25! Deadline, deadline! This one mustn’t whoosh by.
“If we raise *more* than £5000, Buckethead’s emissaries on Earth will use every extra penny to campaign on the ground and on the Internet for Lord Buckethead to face down and beat Nigel Farage as MEP candidate for the South East of England!”
