Lord Buckethead says he could negotiate Brexit better than Theresa May – The Independent
“I shall simply ask you to give two big cheers,” he began. “No.1, to wish a very happy 10th birthday to The Park stage.
“And no.2, to welcome to the stage, a fantastic act from planet Earth: the unassailable, the irreplaceable, the unfathomable… Sleaford Mods!”
Buckethead gained 249 votes in the recent general election, which he described as a “new Buckethead record”.
Before the vote on June 8 he handed out 38,300 flyers which read: “Strong, not entirely stable, leadership. Vote Lord Buckethead for the most powerful protest vote in the galaxy.”
Buckethead – whether the same person beneath the costume or not – also ran against Margaret Thatcher in 1987 and John Major in 1992.
Speaking to the Guardian after his appearance he gave some thoughts on how Brexit negotiations have been going.
“Could I negotiate Brexit better than Theresa May and David Davis? Yes,” Buckethead responded.
“Could a slightly mouldy pain au chocolat negotiate Brexit better than Theresa May and David Davis? Yes. So yes I could, but whether I should is another matter.”
Asked what advice he would give May and Davis for Brexit, he said: “Be sophisticated, the Europeans are a smart bunch.
“There was a photograph the other day of the negotiating team from Great Britain and the negotiating team from Europe and the team from Europe looked so much smarter, they looked smarter sartorially, intellectually, and they had women, which is something British diplomats seem to have forgotten.”
