The leader of Eccentric Party of Great Britain is now an official member of UKIP, in the hope of becoming the group’s next leader.

Lord Toby Jug, who managed to get through the party’s vetting procedures, joined on October 6, and, despite not being included in the upcoming leadership ballot, says he still plans to vote for himself.

“I got through all their vetting procedures despite being the leader of the Eccentric Party of Great Britain, which just goes to show you how bonkers and batty the whole process is. It’s embarrassing for them that I managed to slip through their net,” he said.

Lord Jug added he will write his own name and draw box on the ballot paper to vote for himself in the contest.

“I think I would make a very good replacement for Nigel Farage in the insanity stakes, plus I was a schoolboy boxing champion at West Ham Boxing Club in case there’s any fisticuffs.”

“I think the Eccentric Party of Great Britain stands more chance of being elected in 2020 than UKIP, especially if they chose Nigel Farage for leader again,” he added.

“I’ve more charisma in my little toe than all the other leadership contenders put together, especially local UKIP councillor Lisa Duffy who is far better off sorting out the Christmas lights in Ramsey.”
