Where Have You Bin?
Count Binface used to be called Lord Buckethead until he lost an intellectual property case. In the polls for Mayor of London, he is statistically tied with Laurence Fox, and he is very slightly ahead of Fox on the raw numbers. Each of them is on one per cent, the same as Reform UK is polling for the Hartlepool by-election. The electoral bloc of anti-lockdown statue fetishists does not exist.
In 2019, when he stood against Boris Johnson, then one of Count Binface's joke policies was simply Jeremy Corbyn's universal free broadband policy. Well, Johnson himself gave a commitment to that in answer to a Conservative MP this afternoon. In answer to a Labour MP, a right-wing enforcer of many decades' standing, Johnson also committed the Government to a Buy British policy straight out of the Shadow Chancellorship of Peter Shore. Or the successive General Election manifestos of Arthur Scargill's Socialist Labour Party. Or the Twitter feed of George Galloway. Who's laughing now?
