THE main political parties are getting quite enough publicity elsewhere in this issue (see Forum). So in the interests of political balance, Netropolitan has been browsing the Web sites of those parties which are unlikely to win any seats on 1 May. No British election would ever be complete without the Official Monster Raving Loony Party. It was founded by Screaming Lord Sutch in 1963, which makes him the country’s longest-serving political leader. Sadly, Sutch is not standing. And although the date of the election has been known for several weeks, the party’s Web site (http://raving-loony.pv.org) is still unprepared. “Please come back later,” it pleads. No doubt after the election. If this is headquarters, as Marx once remarked—Groucho, that is—give me hindquarters. On the party’s Cambridge constituency site (http://bridge.anglia.ac.uk/~systimk/Omrlp/index.html), you can find details of the party’s campaign to abolish statistics, and its alleged political achievements—such as the all-day opening of pubs.
