Lord Buckethead is a British political satirist. Representing the Gremloids Party, or more recently standing as an independent, he has run in general elections against Margaret Thatcher, John Major and Theresa May (achieving his best result of 249 votes in 2017 ) in their local constituencies, while they held the office of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
- Your Prime Minister, your MP, Theresa May, called this election about Brexit. Have we heard from her what she plans to do about Brexit? No. This is mad. On Thursday, you are going to be faced with Prime Minister May, or Prime Minister Corbyn, against twenty-seven prime ministers from the European Union. It will be a shitshow.

Quotes about Lord Buckethead
- Lord Buckethead is an intergalactic space lord who ran on a platform of, among other things, "the abolition of the House of Lords (except me)" and "stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia, start buying lasers from Lord Buckethead." And he did this all while looking like Darth Vader fucked an Amazon Echo.
