I am quite tempted to vote for Robespierre in the European elections, masquerading as Jean-Louis Pascual, a bus-driver who has lived in Reading for many years. Will he be asking, in monster mode, for cheese and wine orgies. Alas, no! His goals are more mundane: he wishes to become President of France. From 2006, since this competitor to Sarkozy has been around for a while:
The "Roman Party" is listed in the Evening Post as:
'Jean-Louis Pascual, a bus driver who was born in France but has lived in this counrty for 11 years, explained the Roman Party referred to the phrase "When in Rome do as the Romans do".
He said: "This is all about people coming to this country and becoming part of the community.
"There are some people who come here and stay separate, living in groups and keeping to their own culture.
"It is fine to keep in your own culture in your home, but outside it you should not be separate."
Mr Pascual, 36, of Watlington Street, is standing for Reading Borough Council because he wants to be a "minister or president" in his own country.
He told the Evening Post: "I believe that if I get recognition in this country then I will be recognised in my own country. It is difficult to come to power in France if you are not wealthy."
He said because he was single and without children and family here, he could not be corrupted.
He also suggests British jails should be moved abroad to Russia and the money saved should be spent on the NHS.
I rather prefer his criminal justice policy. Remember tomorrow is the day when you can stand up and be counted.
