Graham Chapman claims in Looks Like a Brown Trouser Job [1] that a member of the Monster Raving Loony Party or some such derivative changed their legal name to Tarquin Fin-tim-lim-bim-whin-bim-lim-bus-stop-F'tang-F'tang-Olè-Biscuitbarrel, ran in an election and got 25 votes. Does anyone know more about this?--Broom eater 01:20, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

Vote splitting[edit]

Is it worth noting that Elsie Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz would have won in Harpenden if he'd been given the two votes that went to the Very Silly Party candidate? Kinitawowi 10:15, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

In my book, yes. ;)Nightstallion (?) 16:53, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
No, that's original research. —Ashley Y 10:54, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Change colors for parties in table?[edit]

Right now the tables use the colors red and blue for the Sensible and Silly parties. In the sketch, the candidates wear rosettes with different colors--green for Sensible, yellow for Silly, purple (I think) for Slightly Silly, and I don't think we ever see Mr Smith of the Very Silly Party, do we?

Since red and blue are the colors of the real-life Labour and Conservative parties, I don't think we should use those. Unless I hear an objection, I'll change the colors to green, yellow, purple, and (for the VSP) some color not in real-life use? -- Narsil (talk) 04:46, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Forgot I'd posted this! Hearing no objections, I'll change the colors to the ones actually used in the sketch. Per List of political parties in the United Kingdom it looks like no party uses brown, so I'll use that for Very Silly Party. — Narsil (talk) 20:00, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
