"Vote for insanity! You know it makes sense."—OMRLP We are joined by Alan "Howling Laud" Hope, the current leader of The Official Monster Raving Loony Party, for an entertaining—yet oddly illuminating—conversation on the history, aims and achievements of the UK's most well-known unconventional political party. In 1999, following the death of the party's founder Screaming Lord Sutch—(who had led the party through its previous incarnations, such as "National Teenage Party" and "Go To Blazes Party")—OMRLP members voted for their new leader, choosing jointly a cat called Cat-Mandu and his owner Alan "Howling Laud" Hope. Although Cat-Mandu died in 2002 and now serves as one of the party's "spiritual leaders", "Howling Laud" proudly continues as the UK's longest-serving party leader.
