Whilst Lord Buckethead’s manifesto has gone viral, a lot less attention has been placed on his hustings performances. Here we get to see the real man behind the mask. If, indeed it is a mask…

It’s worth noting that May didn’t turn up to these hustings. Whilst it’s unclear why, it can be safely assumed that she simply feared the acerbic tongue and quick wit of Lord Buckethead.

Here are a few of the comprehensive policies Lord Buckethead expressed at the hustings. He actually makes more sense than Theresa May.

Buckethead on the NHS:

“Constantly you get reorganisations by Andrew Lansley and the like. They do nothing.

You need Doctors, you need Nurses. Help them. pay them.”

Buckethead on Fox Hunting: 

“On a class level this is just Barbarity.

It is patently obvious it is to appease the right of the Tory party, the brexit biting attack dogs.”

Not Entirely Stable Buckethead

Buckethead on PMQS: 

“It is an earth cult comedy show. Where political supporters ask planted questions.”

Lord Buckethead Standing Arms Folded

Buckethead on Grammar Schools: 

“it is patently obvious to anyone that reintroducing Grammar schools would be a retrograde step.”

Lord Buckethead Manifesto

Buckethead on Education: 

1. better pay for teachers.

2. increased facilities for children.

3. any child caught misbehaving would be blasted into deep space.

Buckethead on Golf: 

“If its one of those, you know, “women can be members I suppose…” clubs

Fuck ’em.”

Buckethead on Housing:



Lord Buckethead John Oliver

Buckethead on Jobs: 

“I have already created one vacancy.

Bucket Polisher.”

Lord Buckethead Dab

Buckethead on Society:

“I believe we should all stick together.

I’ve seen the asteroid that’s headed your way, you have bigger things to worry about.”

Lord Buckethead Canvassing

Buckethead on Brexit: 

“Theresa May called this election about Brexit.

Have we heard from her what she plans to do about Brexit?

No, this is mad.

On Thursday you are going to be faced with Prime Minister May, or Prime Minister Corbyn. Against 27 Prime Ministers from the European Union.

It will be a Shitshow.”

Lord Buckethead Pointing

The Brexit description is the one that stuck with me. Theresa May’s best description of our future has been that it will be Red, White and Blue.

Whilst Lord Buckethead may not have a more concrete plan he undoubtedly has a better understanding of the situation.

The same is true of the NHS, the same is true of Education, even Housing.

All Hail Lord Buckethead, the hero we deserve.

Bonus: Here’s his campaign broadcast, music by D. Bowie.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
