Boris Johnson is already facing a huge struggle to keep hold of his Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency, with Labour candidate Ali Milani relentlessly campaigning to chase down his 5,000 majority – but, as appears to be customary in UK General Elections nowadays, the sitting Prime Minister will also face challenges from numerous other candidates, some with particularly extraordinary names and personas.

As the deadline for General Election candidates has now passed, we can officially confirm that Boris Johnson will face challenges from:

  • Lord Buckethead – Official Monster Raving Loony Party
  • Count Binface – Independent
  • Yace “Interplanetary Time Lord” Yogenstein – Independent
  • Bobby ‘Elmo’ Smith – Give Me Back Elmo Party

You may remember Lord Buckethead from the 2017 General Election, but this is not the same Lord Buckethead who famously stood against Theresa May in her Maindenhead Constituency two years ago.

Comedian Jon Harvey was the man behind Buckethead in 2017, but has now been forced to change his character after another person declared their candidacy under the Buckethead name for this year’s General Election.

In response, Harvey has created the the enitrely new character of Count Binface, who will also be standing in the Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency.

Whilst Count Binface will is standing on an anti-Brexit platform and advocating a “Human’s Vote”, not much is known about the policies of Yace “Interplanetary Time Lord” Yogenstein or Bobby ‘Elmo’ Smith.

In order for Johnson to avoid becoming the first sitting PM to lose his seat in any General Election in history, he will also have to beat:

  • Ali Milani – Labour
  • Jo Humphreys – Liberal Democrat
  • Geoffrey Courtenay – UKIP
  • Mark Keir – Green Party
  • Norma Burke – independent
  • William Tobin – independent
  • Alfie Utting – Independent

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.
