Remember the old days when national elections were fun? That fabulous time when apart from Lord Such and his wonderful Monster Raving Looney Party there was some bloke who changed his name by deed poll to Margaret Thatcher and stood as a candidate. Not only that there were fabulous alternatives like “The Best Party I’ve Ever Been To Party” but unfortunately not available in the real elections were the candidates of Monty Python’s Election Special where The Silly Party win by a landslide and the slightly silly candidate Kenneth Philip Bong polls no votes at all but optimistically bursts into song with “Climb Every Mountain …”
Well, in the spirit of the old days as we approach the rather sombre 2015 boring old farts election here is John Zehentner’s amazing contemporary painting appropriately entitled “Don’t Blame Me I Voted Looney”.
More of John Zenentner’s work can be seen at the Southport Arts Project in Southport along with many other local talented artists. Entrance is free so well worth a visit if you are there one weekend. Here is where it is: Southport Arts Project, Promenade, Southport, Merseyside, PR9 0DZ
