British fools seek political representation

A new political party is on the scene in Great Britain. The Tom Fool Party "aims to bring the spirit of the great British jester into the 2010 election campaign."

According to party leader Will Tease from Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire, “We’ve decided that since most of the candidates of the other parties were big enough fools, what this election really needs was a level playing field so we’re putting ourselves forward to bring some levity to the campaign and to prick the pomposity of those who seek to govern us.

“Together with my fellow Fools I have been trying to put together a manifesto which is even more ludicrous than the ones that have been published so far by other political parties."
