++Old Holborn to stand for MP++




It was an offer I couldn't refuse. I can now reveal that possibly the worst kept secret on the Blogosphere is true.

I have been selected as a candidate for the Jury Team to fight the Cambridge constituency for the General Election.

I can assure you all, the fun is about to commence. Stay tuned.

David Davis (Libertarian Alliance) said...

Good for you, aulde manne.

Never heard of the buggers though. Any chance of you being actually elected?

Tuscan Tony said...

Well done OH. Have fun, and don't forget your mates when its free drinks at the HoC bar.

The email address on your jury team profile page is missing an "l".

Billy Blofeld said...

Excellent news.

PMQ's would be much more entertaining with you on the benches!

So you just have to find a way of removing the Lib Dem incumbent now then........

Good luck...
On a different note, so far 8 comments are shown for this article, yet when clicked reveals only 2?

Beware of Geeks bearing GIFs said...

I've blogged about it here!

Good luck with that. People scarcely know whath the liberals stand for so you'll have no chance mate - even in Cambridge.

Billy Blofeld said...

Do you have a link to donate some cash for your campaign?

Uncle Marvo said...

Seriously, go for it, OH.

And now the real reason for the revamp website is finally revealed. Hands up who hadn't already guessed?

PS for some reason OH's email hasn't got an "L", it is correct on the website. But I suspect also that constituents trying to contact the masked man will inadvertently add one in. Thus their comments will go elsewhere. Just saying.

Ampers said...

Great, if you were standing for Finchley, I would help. I am a good stuffer and a good licker...

Good luck and do feel free to send a puff piece to 646 All Out!

Brilliant! Great news x

John M Ward said...

Very interesting development!

I am pleased; especially as Jury Team seemed to have gone into hibernation since the time of the Euro elections last year, and that is no way to build a reputation that can result in real numbers of votes.

Harry MacEgan. said...

Give 'em hell Harry.

Pat Nurse said...

Good Luck! And I mean that most sincerely, folks, even if I am standing for another party in the election in another district.

Mandy Rice-Krispies said...

Ampers, would you like to come over this weekend to discuss your post further?

bofl said...

keep the mask on holborn.....

are you still supporting the free for all immigration policy?

ie we have millions of people sitting here who could get qualifications> jobs but the state gets in the way and keeps them on the dole! so they import people from all over the globe to do jobs that English people could just to stand up in pm bullshit and lying time to say we have more doctors?

and we have seen the calibre of many recently who couldn't speak English!!!!!!

and then there are millions of people with no jobs that come here and do sod all except get benefits then shout about allah being great and not accepting 'man made laws' while robbing,kidnapping,raping etc?

ps i would LOVE to see kerry's face if you get in!

Joe Public said...

Great news.

Go on though, admit it. You're only doing this to improve your chances of getting a rewarding Consultancy / Lobbyist position in 4 years time.

Why not just stand as an independent?

Henry North London said...

mmm well Good Luck OH


Personally I think its great

dan said...

Wouldn't you rather fight FOR the Cambridge constituency?

extest said...

Looking forward to reading your full name and address on the Statement of Persons Nominated.

After all, you wouldn't go hiding behind the secrecy clause in the PPEA 2009, now would you ?

Once the voters know of your FREEMAN status, you'll be lucky if they'll let you smell their farts.

Cheapskate, tax-dodger, and all kinds of labels will be hurdled around like no tomorrow.

Im sure they'll love your pro-immmigration ticket too.

Still, game for a laugh...

Just seen a JURY TEAM update on your incorrect email addy. Now reads:

Lots of dots init?

Go for it :-)

This would explain the de-sleazing of your blog, would it not? The removal of the old header - "You can stick your CCTV, Police State, wheelie bin Stasi, DNA, WMD, "Social Cohesion", benefits for all, guilty until proved innocent, don't do that it's illegal now, can't say that, ID cards for all, where are you going, what have you been saying/doing/reading?, can't photograph that, how very dare you, golliwog banning, global warming, we know where you live, we're watching you Soviet Utopia up your arses.

Excellent stuff!

You have my postal vote. Even though I've never been in Cambridge in my life.

Anonymous said...

How can you stand, when you are not on the electoral register? Or have you been telling porkies?

DZ said...

When I first saw this I read "Old Holborn to stand for PM" and I thought, yessssss, about right, then I put my glasses on. Bugger.

Old Holborn said...

Right, let's get a few things clear

1. Anyone can register to be an MP. You do not even have to live in the UK. Really. Or be on any voting register. Really

2. I will run under the name of Old Holborn. It will be on the ballot paper. It is allowed.

3. I will be masked and costumed throughout the campaign. I am quite sure some fruitcake will out me but so what?

4. I intend to carry on being a bastard, regardless.

5. Expect lots of fun and games

6. Yes, there will be a donate button. Gunpowder is expensive but I can guarantee you all a massive bang for your buck.

7. Anna Raccoon is my agent.

8. If my name was Daniel Zeichner I would be shitting myself.

Anonymous said...

4. I intend to carry on being a bastard, regardless.

You have already changed the tone of your blog to be more 'mainstream' so this probably is not true. In any case, I hope you ridicule them all by getting elected. You can then take your place alongside Ilona Staller and her ilk.

Glosman said...

I see the JURY TEAM finally got your email right. Third attempt et al.
Sez it all really...

Omar-alli-bangur said...

I will be voting for you Mr Oddborn, me and my 3 wives who love the Cambridges.

Good luck.

Dick Puddlecote said...

Very best of luck, OH. If you get elected, that mask is going to get very hot at PMQs.

Other anonymous bloggers are standing this year under their real name. Some (cough) will wish they'd known that their blog name would have sufficed, IYSWIM. ;-)

By the way, any particular reason for picking Cambridge?

SO17 said...

I wish you well OH,and may I add. If you get elected look at my CV.
If it is good enough for Hoon etc to pimp their Parliamentry experience,then fuck it,so shall I.
7 years as a security bod who knows the Parliamentry estate like the back of my hand.(Minus the new Portculis house).You will never be caught short when needing a shit with me around.
Advice as to where the best offices are to base yourself.
Although 12 years out of service, former collegues have since been promoted to senior security positions.
No embarising parliamentry access problems for you,your staff or visitors.Almost gauranteed.
A good general knowledge of the inner workings of both Houses.
Last but not least.Drinking holes.
Where they are and where best to hide when 'Tired and emotional'.
All the above is an honest summary of my CV.
Unless your part of C4 Despatches in which case I deny the fucking lot.

Will your troll Davy Haslam of Downham Market of Norfolk be helping? After his being chucked out of the Met for "artistic" pictures of little boys he will have time on his hands. Oooh Matron.

Rogerborg said...

Not much liking the new Bowdlerised site. Hopefully you'll lose your rag again 5 minutes after your deposit.

I'd have thought students would have appreciated plain speaking. And your platform is exactly what every scum sucking corporate poltroon runs on:

What I am is someone struggling to return the House of Commons to the people who own it. The Common People. Not career politicians or the vested interests of Unions or Business.

Yaaawn.

Anyway, give 'em heck, you old dastard.

FUCKING SUPERB!

Go for it, my friend!

"2. I will run under the name of Old Holborn. It will be on the ballot paper. It is allowed."

Indeed it is. Moreover, a candidate may be an anonymously registered elector - but his/her subscribers may not. Is this a great country or what ?

Your "clarity" didn't address the point (now there's a surprise), which is : will you be putting your home address on the nomination form, or will you be skulking behind Section 24 of the PPEA 2009 ?

Parliament is a gathering of self-important people who individually can't do anything but together can decide that nothing can be done.

Daniel1979 said...

Will you be selling access to MP's once elected? A few of us would like to get within slapping range on Brown, Hoon et al, and will pay cash or beer if that is preferred.

Good luck!

Uncle Marvo said...

Not true. I am not allowed to be an MP. Previous.

Mr Rob said...

Do you agree with the manifesto of the Alliance For Democracy, of which the Jury Team is half? The other half being the charming English Democrats Party.

Anonymous said...

As Kevin Keegan might say...

'I would just love it, just love it if you got to be an MP'

We need more of this rebellion. Good luck.

caesars wife said...

Brave man ! will the mask/barrel of gunpowder be on the campaign leaflet ? any hustings/radio lined up ?

Mr Rob said...

No need to answer the question about the Alliance For Democracy's manifesto, I've just checked and it has been replaced by separate Jury Team and EDP ones - the pace of change.
As a point of interest for you, the last party to enter into a bi-lateral arrangement with the English Democrats were the England First Party for last year's Euro Elections. Google them.
Good luck.

OH said: "3. I will be masked and costumed throughout the campaign. I am quite sure some fruitcake will out me but so what?"

A question: If you were elected to Parliament would the mask remain on? Can't imagine Parliament would insist a burkha clad lass would have to reveal herself so nor should you.

Good luck to you.

Mr Ambridge, the MP for Cambridge.
Has a certain ring to it I suppose eh Roberto?

65 grand a year for doing fuck all also has a certain attraction to it.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

ps Keep the mask ON as politics is showbiz for ugly bastards you are made for it.

For the win OH, take them down to motherfucking chinatown and make them pay

Congrats - although all those students and your less-than-generous views on Somalian Lesbian Muslim Midgets may not go well.

You scripting a 'Great Repeal Act' then? Need out of the EU for any of that though.

Best news I've heard all year!

Good luck to you, Holby!

Good luck. Gives the wanker hell. Is anyone else joinig you elsewhere?.

Roger Thornhill said...

OH,

Expect to come under attack if you manage to get any kind of traction. Expose the buggers who try. Show them you will not be cowed.

You are doing a brave thing and I admire you for that.

22,000 students.

Maybe. Depends where they are registered to vote. Many will show home address. I think.

From the radical Oldholborn blogspot, to the sterile Oldhold dot net.

New Header reads
"People should not fear their government, their government should fear the people"
