D'oh!

In the UK, you can't stand for a party called "None of the Above" so one chap has changed his own name to Mr None of The Above to stand against Iain Duncan Smith in Chingford & Woodford Green. However, since his last name is "Above", he is first on the ballot paper!

None of The Above Independent
Cath Arakelian Labour
Lucy Craig Green
Iain Duncan Smith Conservative
Nick Jones UK Independence Party
Julian Leppert British National Party
Geoffrey Seeff Liberal Democrat
Barry White Independent

The other piece of irony is that the plane in which Nigel Farage crashed is Polish.

I see the Walrus of Love is standing (or perhaps, reclining on a chaise longue) as well.

I'm fuzzy on the details, but I remember someone trying a similar tactic here in the states, and they wouldn't let him do it.

Is that Zombie Barry White?

Next time, Mr None of the Below. And hope that Arakelian doesn't run again.

hahahaha, and thank goodness we live in a country where people still do mad things like this, cocking a snook at Our Fine Democracy.
