Loony Politics

Rosalyn Warner is not a well-known name in politics, her non-de-plume Mad Cow-Girl is however. She has stood at various high profile contests since 1997, and will now stand at Haltemprice and Howden. She is of course the Official Monster Raving Loony Party candidate, a party who have a range of policies, and some past policies such as all-daydrinking are now law, but they are known more for being the one standign out in a silly constume as the Returnign Officer reads the results than anything else.

However Rosalyn has been drawn into the debate that sparked Davis' resignation and the by-election. She states on her website the following:

A vote for the Mad Cow-Girl is a vote for a return to real law & order.

I may be a Loony, but I'm not mad enough to want dangerous people walking free in the name of political correctness.

  • Suspected terrorists should be held until proved safe.
  • Sex offenders should be held in asylums until considered safe (if ever).
  • Antisocial yobs can rot in prison if they can't be sociable.

Why don't decent citizens have a "Human Right" not to be assaulted, blown up or harassed, when the criminals can scream human rights if their handcuffs hurt?

Is this a sharp move to the right or sensible politics from a party whose mission statement seems to be to "make elections more fun, brighter, colourful and humorous"?
