A Brexit Party parliamentary candidate was so angry by Nigel Farage’s decision to stand down party candidates in Tory seats, he changed his name by deed poll to Mr Brexit Party – so the party name would still appear on the ballot.
Andrew Morgan – Brexit Party candidate for Clacton before Farage sold him out – changed his name officially to Andrew Morgan Clacton-Brexit Party (I’m not making this up).
However, the local returning officer – after receiving legal advice – has ruled his name cannot appear on the ballot papers as it would mislead voters so his name will appear as plain old Andrew Morgan.
Morgan however is now stuck with the name for the rest of his life.
Should have got a picture of Farage’s face tattooed on one of his buttocks instead…
