Apparently the UK elections are a bit of a disaster. But there is one bit of good news amidst the wreckage:
Mike Buchanan of the Justice for Men and Boys party is a huge loser.
I mean, he was already a huge loser, a misogynistic doofus in a suit best known for his over-the-top attacks on feminists as, among other things, “bigots,” man-haters, “unattractive women,” and “hatchet-faced miserable women who object to men finding attractive women attractive.” He’s also a longtime friend of Men’s Rights hate site A Voice for Men.
Now he’s a huge loser electorally speaking as well.
Here’s the Nottingham Post with the details:
The leader of the Justice for Men and Boys party Mike Buchanan deliberately targetted Labour’s Gloria De Piero at the general election in deciding to stand against her on a platform of anti-feminism and pro-male rights.
Mr Buchanan opted to stand in Ashfield as Miss De Piero was the Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities in the last Government.
He came last, polling 153 votes.
I would like to congratulate the voters — at least all but 153 of them — for their wisdom.
UPDATE: The other J4MB party member running for office (in Broxtowe) came in last in his race as well, with all of 63 votes.
H/T — ej, in the We Hunted the Mammoth comments, for passing along the electoral results.
