I listed Al along with MPs and candidates that I know and the othes are all Liberals. Al Murray, the Pub Landlord, comedian, writer and historian, merits special mention.

Al Murray (South Thanet). Intelligent, educated, intellectual – and more importantly right on many political issues. Al is the best candidate in South Thanet, he has more knowledge of history and of the importance of political, social and historic context than the other serious candidates. Few people don't now realise that Al Murray's 'the Pub Landlord' character is comedy satire, but many people don't realise that Al Murray is serious, a very capable candidate for Parliament who would be a superb MP.
