Boris Johnson to face 'Lord Buckethead' in General Election in Uxbridge

BORIS Johnson will face Lord Buckethead in Uxbridge in the December General Election.

The PM will also go up against a candidate called Count Binface in his West London constituency.


Lord Buckethead has famously appeared alongside three former Prime Ministers in the past – most recently Theresa May in 2017.

The fictional character also stood against Margaret Thatcher in 1989, and John Major in 1992.

This time around Lord Buckethead is standing for the Official Monster Raving Loony Party.

He's previously tried to represent a group called 'Gremloids'.

Other fun candidates on the list include Bobby 'Elmo' Smith, and Yace 'Interplanetary Time Lord' Yogenstein.

Boris faces a tough fight to hold on to his Uxbridge seat, where he only has a majority of 5,000.

Polls are open between 7am and 10pm on December 12.
