It must be like a scene from The Walking Dead at election time in Christchurch. Nobody with their cerebral cortex attached or who has any sense of irony would vote for Christopher Chope. Where are the rest of the population? The young? The non feeble minded? Perhaps they are so focused on moving away that they have given up the ghost.
Not a day goes passes without some pronouncement or act that defies belief in the 21st century.
Just take a look at some recent excursions in to the ludicrous:
And now this. First he advises victims of knife crime to ‘get fitter’ and then he wants to set up a brigade of ‘blue shirts’ to riot until he gets his way.
Serious question: Is Christopher Chope performance art?

Hey @Conservatives, @BrandonLewis … this was Suella Braverman and Christopher Chope … I believe they are two of yours … I'd hate to think you hadn't noticed that your party has a sleeper cell of nazis in it who have just woken up. Please do something about it! pic.twitter.com/HnKRYQoqU9

By the same token, Christopher Chope could protect himself against ridicule by 'being less of a twat'. https://t.co/aMhfsjCx5W

I can see the Christchurch Conservative Association now when he falls or is pushed off his perch. ‘Please don’t let the next one be a complete nut job. Just a partial one like the rest of the party’.
