THE Official Monster Raving Loony Party is in Winchester tonight to formally launch their European election campaign.

The party will also launch its own beer to be introduced at the Mash Brewery at East Stratton and two city pubs, the Fulflood Arms and The Albion.

The Albion was the base for party founder Screaming Lord Sutch in the November 1997 re-election, his last before his death in 1999.
