"The little media attention that the by-election attracted was focussed on a bizarre row between Labour and the Raving Loonies. [...] the Labour agent tried erroneously to have the Loony candidate, party leader Screaming Lord Sutch, arrested for breaking an electoral law that had been changed in 1987. He attempted to have Sutch charged with the former offence of using a public house as an election campaign headquarters."
The Loonies finished above the SDP, who dissolved their party as a result.
