The leader was on Daily Politics and was essentially a One Nation Tory/Christian Democrat who would now seem like an oddball maverick in the Conservative party.

I'm amazed they still act as a political party.

Did you know there were four US Presidents who were Whigs? All in the 1840s-50s.

Got one standing in Bethnal Green and Bow.

Unlikely to trouble the scorers too much.

The Whig might poll higher than the Lib Dem.

A horror Trott?

My whig got 0.4%, 203 votes. 9th place out of 11.

We had everyone except Lord Buckethead running.

To be fair, given the apparent popularity of 19th-century policies in this country you can hardly blame this shower of oddballs for chancing their arm.
