Self-serving lying b'stard to stand for Bristol mayor
A CAFE worker from Staple Hill is changing his name by deed poll again – in readiness for his campaign to be voted Bristol's elected mayor.
Eric Mutch, who changed his name to Zero None Of The Above for the General Election two years' ago will now be known as Mr Corrupt Self-serving Lying B'stard.
He told the Post: "I decided to stand as soon as the referendum result was known.
"I think a lot of politicians make promises only to break them – being a politician is not a career, it's a vocation.

"I think my name change makes a statement about how I feel about politicians all over the world."
He said it was outrageous they paid themselves £65,000 a year – the salary of a backbench MP – when the average wage was less than half that much.
He said he came up with his latest new name because many people did not understand the point of the one he used for the general election.
The idea was to give a choice to people who wanted to vote but did not want to give their support to any of the candidates on their ballot paper.
Mr Mutch, 46, who is married with an 18-month-old toddler and works at the Blue Sky Cafe off Broad Street in Staple Hill, said he was not put off by the fact that he only polled 172 votes at the general election.
He said: "I learnt so much from that campaign and I sure I will be able to do better this time."
He said his single manifesto promise was to print a local currency and pay an annual unconditional basic annual income guarantee to every Bristol resident of £10,000 Bristol pounds.
He said: "This annual unconditional basic income guarantee will be paid to all residents of Bristol regardless of whether they are working, non working or retired.
"I will fund the unconditional basic income with a local sales tax on all Bristol pound transactions and there's also the £1 billion funding pot, that now only Bristol can apply for, seeing as were the only city who said yes.
"I will also only accept a wage of the national average of £489 a week – paid in Bristol pounds of course."
The referendum result last week means there will be elections for an elected mayor in Bristol on November 15.
