I was Lord Buckethead, intergalactic space lord and independent parliamentary candidate. Welcome to my domain (both in a figurative and technological sense). Like an old, knackered Sith apprentice, I have now unmasked to reveal my true identity. I can only apologise for my appearance. I wasn’t even maimed and knocked into a river of lava by a former teacher. I have no excuse.

I was a space lord, and stood to be the independent Member of Parliament for Maidenhead at the 2017 UK General Election. I secured 249 votes, which I am proud to say is a new Buckethead record. I enjoyed planet-conquering, dominating inferior species, and Lovejoy. My manifesto (below) was an ambitious and progressive programme not only for the good Earthlings of a certain Berkshire conurbation but for the entirety of your nation. It was a suite of policies that had been fully costed and which married fiscal responsibility with an interest in lasers.

MY 2017 MANIFESTO: Strong, not entirely stable, leadership

1. The abolition of the Lords (except me).

2. Full facial coverings to be kept legal, especially bucket-related headgear.

3. No third runway to be built at Heathrow: where we're going we don't need runways.

4. Ceefax to be brought back immediately, with The Oracle and other Teletext services to be rolled out by the next Parliament.

5. Regeneration of Nicholson's Shopping Centre, Maidenhead.

6. Buckethead on Brexit: a referendum should be held about whether there should be a second referendum.

7. Nuclear weapons: A firm public commitment to build the £100bn renewal of the Trident weapons system, followed by an equally firm private commitment not to build it. They're secret submarines, no one will ever know. It's a win win.

8. Nationalisation of Adele: in order to maximise the efficient use of UK resources, the time is right for great British assets to be brought into public ownership for the common good. This is to be achieved through capital spending.

9. A moratorium until 2022 on whether Birmingham should be converted into a star base. 

10. Legalisation of the hunting of fox-hunters.

11. New voting age limit of 16 to be introduced. New voting age limit of 80 to be introduced too.

12. Katie Hopkins to be banished to the Phantom Zone.

13. Stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia. Start buying lasers from Lord Buckethead.

14. Prospective MPs to live in the seat they wish to represent for at least five years before election, to improve local representation in Parliament.

15. Free bikes for everyone, to help combat obesity, traffic congestion and bike theft.
