McGillicuddy Serious Launch Website

The McGillicuddy Serious Party today announced it's website, little more than a week before the election.

The site is fairly no nonsense, mostly in black and white, with basic navigation, so as not to confuse voters any more than necessary.

It is expected that with the new accessibility of the parties policies, and the rampant chaos that the election campaign is slipping into, the McGSP will pick up at least another 60% of the vote by polling day.

Party Secretary, bernard smith, said that "We see our entry into the public domain as distinctly to our advantage. Internet able voters will have enough time to see our policies, but only a short amount of time to consider them. this can only work to our advantage, with the clear sense expressed in the policy statements needing urgent action, but not enough time for people to think otherwise."

He also added that the party expects to be sitting on the cross benches, post election, but with a majority. "We are neither right nor left, but totally transcendant, and we'll sit where we like. Parliamentary convention be damned." the party expects voting procedures to be chaotic, once elected, and substantially more violent.
