Labour put a call out on Twitter for parliamentary candidates and received some unexpected responses

By Taylor Heyman

It’s a novel way of finding new candidates.

The Labour Party Twitter account has announced the party is looking for candidates for the June 8 general election and already have some strange applicants.

Theresa May’s decision to call a snap election has left most of us in shock, so we don’t blame Labour for looking for fresh talent online. However, we think they may be a bit surprised by these responses.

Let’s face it; this is who we really want to see elected.

Perhaps other bodies could also adopt this approach to find talent?

If you want to apply, you’ll have to be quick. The deadline is 12 noon on Sunday.
