TV Review: Al Murray V Nigel Farage: The Battle for South Thanet, Dave

Unless you’ve spent all day in the pub you will know that Al Murray will not be taking up a seat in Westminster. But the Pub Landlord has left behind a legacy of sorts. A fun campaign that highlighted some of the absurdity of the electoral system and this entertaining fly-on-the-hustings documentary. 


News: General Election 2015 – A Mixed Night For Comedy

It was a mixed night for comedians and the comedy industry involved in the General Election last night.

Review Al Murray, Queen Elizabeth Hall

In a few days Al Murray could be taking his seat in Parliament. Unlikely, admittedly, but his decision to stand at the FUKP candidate in Thanet South could just possibly have an effect on the result as this is a pretty close seat, with Nigel Farage one of the other contenders. If he doesn't get to be an MP Murray still has a career as a stand-up. His Pub Landlord character is two decades old and for reasons that hardly need explaining is more relevant than ever.

News: Al Murray, Pub Landlord, MP?

It has been reported that Al Murray is to stand as a candidate in the next General Election in the guise of the Pub Landlord. Murray will reportedly be standing for the newly formed FUKP – Free United Kingdom Party – in the constituency of South Thanet. This is believed to be the constituency where UKIP leader Nigel Farage is likely to stand too. In an echo of Russell Brand, Murray says he is standing because "The system is broken". His slogan is "Common sense policies for common sense people".
