Brunel students get up close and personal in a Q&A with Lord Buckethead
With another general election is on its way, we got the exciting opportunity to ask Lord Buckethead about some very hard-hitting topics.
Time to get up close and personal with the “sexiest evil overlord in the known universe”.
For those uncultured people who don’t know who his Lordship is, he is a prospective parliamentary candidate for the Official Monster Raving Loony Party in Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency.
For the past 35 years, Lord Buckethead has been standing as a candidate in constituencies of previous PM’s such as Margaret Thatcher, John Major, Teresa May and now Boris Johnson. We asked his Lordship who has been his greatest adversary so far. He said: “All humans tremble before the great and powerful Lord Buckethead, however, if I was forced to pick one, it would have to be the Iron Lady, whom I faced in the Year of Our Lord 1987. Although "Mophead v Buckethead" in 2019 is shaping up to be quite the battle”
As a child he had always dreamed of being an Evil Overlord however his previous attempts haven’t been successful and has now taken the political route to world domination. When asked who he would replicate, domesticate or exterminate Michael Gove, Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage. He replied that he would choose neither and subjugate all of them (sorry lads) as with all humans, “Bend to my will, eathrborn meat puppets" .
His Lordship said the people of Uxbridge and South Ruislip are some of the finest humans” he has ever met and is looking forward to when his “Imperial Space Fleet arrives to conquer Earth” and for the people to serve him as his underlings.
Given the major debate on racism in the current general election, we asked if coming from another planet meant he had suffered any form of discrimination on Earth. He said: “It is true that my bucket-like helmet allows me to breathe the poisonous atmosphere of your planet, but it also conceals my otherworldly visage from the cruel and unfeeling eyes of humans who would likely recoil at the sight of my elongated head and the unusual alignment of my facial features.”
Despite his mission of world dominance this general election, his lordship is backing Labour Candidate and Brunel Alumni Ali Milani to unseat Boris Johnson in the Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency.
