People say get RUSSELL BRAND or FRANKIE BOYLE…OR…….to stand for CLASS WAR….but I’d settle for this geezer anyday:

Great choice, but fuck it, why not ask all of them? Come to that, there’s Alex Ferguson as well…!
For some inspiration from abroad, take a look at Belgian MP Laurent Louis. Say what you like about him, but he rips into the whole fucking corrupt show.
(OK, what to do in the Palace of Westminster will be for after the first CW MPs get tipped out of the handcarts Keir Hardy-style and their arses first touch the hallowed green leather. Got to hit the ground running and not get stalled on the issue of the oath of allegiance 🙂 ).
I hate to say it but Class War would really benefit from attracting a “big name” in order to get the kind of coverage that will break down apathy amongst the non-voters and help get some momentum going. There are of course risks involved -think David Icke!
Housing is going to be a big issue in the next election as we are heading for another bubble, interest rates will have to go up and renting is getting more difficult. Class War won’t get elected but it will get people thinking and the influence will last longer than a solitary MP on the green benches. EG make it no longer acceptable in people’s minds to own a weekend home or a buy to let.
The artist Taxi Driver?
…and are there any vaguely left-wing popular pop/rock musicians who might be happy to do a benefit for, or promote CW2015? Or are they all oily little fucks with marketing diplomas and MBAs and an eye on retiring early to garden cottages in Suffolk or the Cotswolds? Is there another Joe Strummer out there, or has ‘pop’ finally eaten itself?? PlanB seemed promising, but then turned out to be a prime knob…
Billy Bragg. Surely he’d be up for it.
New Model Army might be a better bet!
