All Roads Leeds to Westminster

Don’t know what they are on about, nothing wrong with the voting system in this country…..

Leeds fan Martin Bland has changed his name by deed poll to ‘We Beat The Scum One Nil’ to stand in the General Election.

50-year-old plumber from Huddersfield, Bland, who had to change his name after discovering it was too late to establish a new party, wanted to continue the celebration of Leeds’ January FA Cup win at Old Trafford. So he is standing in Leeds Central against sitting MP Hilary Benn.

“I don’t live in the constituency so there’s a chance I’ll get none as I can’t even vote for myself,” admitted the father-of-two.

“There are a lot of disillusioned voters out there. But my first target is for Leeds to get more points than Millwall, Swindon and Charlton.”

His mandate, Standing for election in the Leeds Central constituency on an Anti-Reds ticket


Martin, no sorry Mr “We Beat…….” actually polled 155 votes
