Lord Buckethead

The UK held its national election yesterday, in which each Member of Parliament had to run again for their office, including Prime Minister Theresa May. Her competition was a character named Lord Buckethead, whose face is never seen- because he has a bucket on it.

Serving as the sole representative of the Gremloid Party—which, like the intergalactic overlord himself, is apparently a reference to a 1984 B-movie called Hyperspace—Buckethead ran against May for her seat in the southern England district of Maidenhead, billing themselves as “the most powerful protest vote in the galaxy.” Assuming it’s the same person—because, again, they never take off that bucket—it’s actually the third time the black-cloaked satirist has run against the sitting Conservative PM; someone operating under the name also challenged Margaret Thatcher in 1987, and John Major in 1992.

As is tradition, the candidates for the office stood together as the results came in.

You can read Lord Buckethead's political manifesto here. He garnered 249 votes in the district of Maidenhead, while May ran off with 37,718, although whether she will remain prime pinister remains to be seen. You can see more of Lord Buckethead on his YouTube channel.
