This is the final instalment of the Londonmultimedianews guide fringe political parties and independents at the 2015 general election.

In this episode we travelled to the Kent consistency of South Thanet to meet the self-styled Prophet, standing for Al-Zebabist Nation of Ooog party, Zebadiah Abu-Obadiah.

The Prophet has been a controversial figure in the constituency.

His policies range from annexing the Thanet constituency from the rest of the UK to reducing council tax for families with beards. Police have also been called to some of his political rallies.

However, underneath the comedy policies and confrontational rhetoric there are some serious political messages about immigration and multiculturalism in the local area.

He feels that the attention that these arguments have got has have diverted the debate away from the real issues facing local residents.
