Al Murray To Take On Nigel Farage At General Election
Al Murray has said he intends to take his Pub Landlord character into the political arena – with an election tilt at Ukip leader Nigel Farage.
Murray said he would be standing in the Kent seat of South Thanet for his newly formed Free United Kingdom Party.
Farage’s team claimed to be unconcerned about the threat posed by The Pub Landlord.
The politician tweeted: “The more, the merrier! @almurray.”
A spokesman for the UKIP leader said: “At last, serious competition in the constituency.”
Oxford-educated Murray has created a 13-point action plan in the guise of his patriotic character, in which he promises: “The pound will be revalued at one pound 10p, so it will now be worth 10p more. Common sense.”
