I find it quite rich that Farage is considered a 'serious' candidate whilst Murray is dismissed as a 'celebrity'.
Democracy works thi9s way. Anyone can stand and lose their deposit if they wish Anyone can vote for Al Murray i9f they like.
If you start judging who is 'fit' to stand and who isn't then we are losing a basic element of our system.
If you like Farage then vote for him, if you like Cameron then I suppose you might as well vote Lib-Dem (now there is a travesty of the system you love so!!)
