I do love a good protest vote or fringe candidate. Even despite this ‘snap’ general election on June 8, the campaign has thrown up some individual battles. Step forward a man dressed as a fish finger! Mr Fish Finger is standing against Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron and hopes to “put him in his plaice,” in the Westmorland and Lonsdale.  It is a big ask as Farron defends a majority of nearly 9,000 and Farron gained the seat from the Conservatives in the 2005 election.

Donations made to the a crowdfunding page in support of Mr Fish Finger’s nomination have topped £2,300 , which will cover his deposit of £500 to stand in the election. You can follow his campaign on Twitter @MrFishFingerMP

Whatever the result on June 8 one of them will have had their chips…
