British Comedian Al Murray is running against Nigel Farage in the next election. He has posted a video for support of his campaign and i'll be damned if it isn't hilarious:

This is not a joke this is apparently legitimately his political campaign video which makes it all the more awesome.

Everyone would be too scared he'd go "Tywin" on them.

There's a weird sort of irony to this, it's funny. I mean, the pub landlord character is pretty similar to Farage anyway, the biggest difference being that one is a comedy character who is played for laughs and aware of his own ridiculousness, and the other is sadly playing the same character with a completely straight face...>_>

Never really watched Al Murray, but this video was pretty decent.

Izzard would be a fantastic world leader.

He also has a high % of Neanderthal blood according to genome tests he took.

I dig Murray. Rough diamond with a big heart. Ugly as sin and twice as honest as a true nun.

The leader *I'd* want would be dreaded Frankie Boyle, though.

The ultimate take no prisoners comedian.

I consider comedians extremely intelligent, which is why I'm surprised one would run for office. (badum-tish)

yeah, but you can also ask why they'd go on reality TV for the same reason. Ala Sue yum yum Perkins on British Bake Off.

RUN FOR PM, SUE PERKINS! We'll get you the votes!
