Comedian Al Murray might not be in the top flight of political candidates, but he has hit the bullseye with his latest group of supporters - a darts team.

A group of builders from Barking in East London are taking a two week break from their jobs to travel around the South Thanet constituency in Kent, where Murray is standing against Ukip leader Nigel Farage.

Murray, better known as the Pub Landlord, is standing as a Free United Kingdom Party (FUKP) candidate, and drew up his manifesto on the back of a fag packet, including "making more stuff for profit, building new houses for people who make stuff and teaching more stuff in schools."

The six-man Double Diamond Geezers darts team will tour the constituency from tomorrow, playing charity matches and holding pub quizzes - all wearing burgundy jackets worn by Murray during his act.

Team captain Lenny Leminson said: "What's not to like about Al's big policy of cutting the price of a pint to 1p?"
