PRESS RELEASE - 25 May, 2001
Vote Charlotte Regan - for
one less politician
A radical new candidate has
entered the forthcoming general election, running in the Regent's
Park and North Kensington constituency. Innovative Ms. Charlotte
Regan gives the people a chance to vote against all candidates on
offer rather than have to support the one they find least
objectionable or do nothing and be considered apathetic. She
guarantees never to mis-represent the people - never to represent
them at all. Taking no part in the political process she will take no
money from it and simply create one empty seat in parliament - one
less politician feeding at the trough. This promise is secured by a
moral and legally binding oath sworn by the candidate. Politicians
often promise to reduce government. Ms. Regan wants to give them a
Charlotte is the daughter of
the late Simon Regan, infamous journalist and editor of Scallywag.
This former stripper and mother of two, who now teaches dance, is
delighted to be carrying on in the tradition of her father, who had
no great respect for the political process. To quote her: "I'm
so disgusted by politicians that I'd rather get rid of them than vote
for them. So a win for me means one less of them."
The idea of removing one
politician from the stagnant status quo that is government derives
from the popular and radical book, "Uncommon Sense - the State
is out of Date." To quote it's author Gregory Sams, who launched
the original VegeBurger, pioneered the UK's natural food industry
and more recently become a visionary promoter of chaos theory:
"The biggest problem facing the world today is an excess of politicians."
After reading his book, Ms.
Regan persuaded Gregory Sams to form the One Less Party.
Unfortunately at the eleventh hour a snafu makes it impossible for
her to be its official candidate. Despite this the whole essence of
the One Less Party's policy is contained within the simple oath which
its candidates are required to sign. In view of this, the Party are
urgently recommending that would-be supporters vote tactically in
favour of Ms Regan at this election.
