most controversial Parliamentary Candidate, Independent Matt Taylor wins the
Brighton Kemptown election with a landslide majority, claiming “the most
sensational victory in Sussex
Matt Taylor the leader of the Moai King William Party has grabbed a remarkable victory in the Brighton Kemptown election, claiming “With the power of the subconscious mind, I have won the most sensational victory in
While many Labour and Conservative members are left scratching their heads this morning, it would appear the county’s voters deserted the traditional political party’s on-masse to herald
Taylor’s call to “Vote Independent on
Independence Day 7th of May.”
With the biggest voter turnout in the history of
Sussex elections, 100% across all three Brighton constituencies, Hove & Portslade, Brighton
Pavilion and Brighton Kemptown, voters turned their backs on the establishment
political parties and voted for independents instead.
Eye witnesses claim Nancy Pratts, the Labour candidate and bookies favourite to be elected Brighton Kemptown MP, ran out of the counting room at the Brighton Centre in tears having heard the news of Matt Taylor’s landslide victory, while ex- MP Simon Kirby was heard to shout various expletives when the result was read out, “You must be fucking God-damning joking,” was one of many more heard echoing around the stunned conference floor.
The result raises wider questions over whether the result is a simple one-off reflecting
personal charisma, or instead a sign of a wider detachment from mainstream
party politics to independent political thinking.
Hailing his triumph immediately after the official result was announced, Matt Taylor said: “By the power of the subconscious mind, I have won the most sensational victory in Sussex political history … Let us not forget that during these times of austerity, rebellion and uncertainly, disillusionment with politicians will inevitably increase. It’s in the spirit of
Brighton that the people of Brighton Kemptown,
Moulsecoomb, Rottingdean, Bevendean, Telscom, Peacehaven and Ovingdean have
entrusted me with this most important of duties to ensure their MP lives up to
their responsibilities and never crosses the line into complacency and corruption.
Your vote was worth it. I am the best man for the job and I intent to start straight
away to be the best MP Brighton Kemptown have ever had. Thank you, thank you,
Politicians, agents and officials were privately conceding defeat long before the official result which came at 2.30am on Saturday morning.
Matt Taylor claimed the path to his victory went back to ‘Fraudulent austerity measures inflicted by a nasty Nazis regime.’
He added that both the Labour and Conservative parties hadn’t won the argument on austerity, “The truth steadily became clear to everyone. Austerity is nothing more than a nasty ideology dreamt up by the ruling elite to rob billions from the nation to line their own pockets, which would otherwise have been spent on Welfare, the NHS, the Police and Education.”
The result represents an extraordinary new chapter for
Taylor personally. He was
a Royal Military Policeman and later a contract weed killer, before becoming a
businessman in November 2008 and building his political presence across the web,
before standing in the Police and Crime Commissioner elections in 2012.
Matt Taylor has since worked diligently for
Sussex as the Shadow Sussex Police and Crime
Commissioner, holding the Chief Constable of Sussex Police to account; unlike
the elected SPCC Katy Bourne, who has failed miserably to hold anything to
account, let alone two Sussex
Chief Constables (of which she is being £85,000 a year to do so.)
