Young People's Party fields mature candidate

Young People's Party fields mature candidate

Have you heard of the YPP? The Young People's Party? It's new. It aims to "fundamentally rebalance our society and economic system in favour of the productive economy and young people". Its candidate in the Croydon North by-election is called Robin Smith and as his leaflet helpfully points out, he is 49 years old. Mr Smith aside, there is a veritable feast of small parties running in Croydon. Dot's favourite, the Monster Raving Loonies aside, is a new outfit called Nine Eleven Was An Inside Job. If they lose, there will be a conspiracy theory to explain why.
