where they're playing BBC reporters covering an election. Whenever a party was named it was followed by the designation "Sensible" or "Silly." The Sensible parties were Labour, Conservative, and LibDem (though I personally think one could question the Tories). I don't remember the Silly parties, but I think a few are visible in your list:
>Church of the Militant Elvis Party Elvis
>"Death, Dungeons & Taxes " Death
The Tories, like the Republicans, prefer the first two.
>Legalise Cannabis Alliance Cannabis
Not that I wouldn't vote for them.
>Max Power Party Max
I pray to God this is a Homer Simpson reference.
>Motorcycle News Party Motorbike
>Monster Raving Loony Party Loony
>Personality AND Rational Thinking? Yes! Party PARTY
>Rock `N Rock Loony
>Telepathic Partnership Telepathic
Did John Hagelin move to the UK?
>Tiger's Eye - the Party for Kids Tiger's Eye
They should have spelled it "Kidz."
>Their Party Their
Uh oh, who are "they"?
>The People`s Choice! Exclusively For All Peoples
Any party with an exclamation point in their party name is automatically designated a Silly Party.
>Vote for Yourself Rainbow Dream Ticket Yourself
Keep hope alive?
>Xtraordinary People Party Xtra People
Any party which replaces "Ex" with "X" in their party name is automatically designated a Silly Party.
>Your Party Your Party
I actually like this one.
