Supporters of the Monster Raving Loony Party have returned from their 31st party conference in Blackpool.

Members of the wacky group travelled to the resort from across Britain for the annual event, which was later described as ‘luvverly’.

During their two day stay in the resort, guests met at Uncle Tom’s Cabin in Queen’s Promenade, North Shore, and enjoyed several other local attractions.

The unusual party’s leader, Alan ‘Howling Laud’ Hope, said: “Blackpool took to us like we were returning heroes and gave us a great roar of approval.

“I’m very pleased to report that there were no splits in the cabinet, and the doors didn’t fall off this year.

“The actual conference itself didn’t last too long, short and sweet and to the point.

“All that stood in the recent general and local elections were congratulated, no new resolutions were passed, our membership continues to rise, our bank balance is quite healthy.”

The group plans to put 25 candidates forward for the Welsh assembly, Mr Hope added.

“If this happens, we will then be entitled to our very first party political broadcast,” he said.

“It will be the only one that people will dash home to turn on, only on Welsh television’ mind you, but so what, another ‘Loony Milestone’.”

The conference took place last weekend, and could return next year too.
