Lord Buckethead lost the British election despite his compelling 7 point manifesto

Since the reelection of Margaret Thatcher in 1987, Lord Buckethead has been on a British ticket for prime minister. This election left current prime minister Theresa May in charge with a Democratic Unionist Party to deal with, and failed to result in a win for the self proclaimed intergalactic space lord.

He did, however, receive the most votes he's ever had, coming in with 249 from the Berkshire District.

Running on a platform of “strong, but not entirely stable leadership,” Mike Opelka proclaimed him the most honest politician in the entire country on Friday's "Pure Opelka." Despite this endearing trait, his lordship only received 131 votes in 1987 against Thatcher and also failed to beat 1992 Labour candidate John Major.

Britain has three well known political parties: the conservative Tories, the Labour party, and the Monster Raving Looney party. Lord Buckethead ran independently of the MRLs on a seven point manifesto.

He called for the abolition of all lords (ranking members of the peerage) except himself and wanted full facial coverings to be kept legal, especially bucket related head gear. He also demanded that no third runway be built at Heathrow Airport, and that Ceefax, the world's first teletext service, be brought back immediately.

He called for the regeneration of Nicholson’s shopping center in the town of Maidenhead, and a referendum to be held about whether there should be a second referendum on Brexit. Lastly he made a firm public commitment of 100 billion pounds to build the Trident nuclear submarine weapon system, followed by a private commitment not to build it.
