This plucky buccaneer is hoping to stand as an Independent for the Cities of London and Westminster. His policies include tax breaks on rum, training in swordsmanship and gunnery, and the renaming of the iPad to the iPatch. He runs the UK chapter of the increasingly annoying Talk Like a Pirate Day. Mad Captain Tom has appeared on Newsround and, most importantly, he is not a student. On May 6, will you be marking your ballot sheet with a skull and crossbones?
