Knigel Knapp stood in Islington North in the General Election and got 106 votes and came 7th out of 10 - Not bad at all considering he did almost no campaigning. And he got loads of coverage in the papers and on telly. Photos of him "nodding sagely" behin Jeremy Corbyn while he was delivering his victort speech were beamed alll over the world via facebook. And he even got a photo with a speech bubble in Private Eye.
So it's True ! - Knigel Knapp, Knight of the unKnown and Monster Raving Loony Party Minister for Blatant Lies and Big Fibs, will be standing in the forthcoming General Election ! And just for a change he will be standing in Islington North. Isn't that where a certain Jeremy Corbyn is MP ? So why has Knigel forsaken Hackney and jumped ship (or double decker bus) for Islington ? Nothing to do with all the TV cameras that will be there on the night surely ? And why is he standing against the future (possibly?!??!?) Prime Minister ? Knigel says " I'm not standing against Jeremy, I'm standing with him - just in case he needs to form a coalition goverment ! "
Well there are rumours flying around that Knigel might be standing in this years General Election - they might be true - watch this space ! In the meantime enjoy The Monster Raving Loony Party's Official General Election Campaign Song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltsHbFXM4Cw&feature=youtu.be
I know it's the same as the one we used in 2015 but this election was rather sprung on us and we haven't had time to record a new one. So much for fixed parliaments eh ?
Knigel knapp stood as a MRLP candidate for the Welsh Assembly. The MRLP put up over 25 candidates and this entitled us to our first ever Party Election Broadcast. Watch it here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1bUIycOELw&feature=player_embedded

Old News - Thurs 1st July 2010
Knigel was persuaded to take the loony floating bicycle out onto the River Thames again. (doesn't take much persuading - just the promise of an attentive photographer) This time he was water cycling in the Kingston-upon-Thames area much to the amusement of everyone on the river bank and on the pleasure boats. There was suppossed to be an article in the Surrey Advertiser about this - If anyone saw it can they let us know.
