Tyson Fury Planning A Move Into Politics

By Terence Dooley
Tyson Fury has put the disappointment of the postponement of his fight against heavyweight world Champion Wladimir Klitschko to one side for the time being as he bids to make a move into politics as the MP for Morecambe and Lunesdale, where he currently resides.  

Fury has declared an interest in campaigning for the seat and intends to oust current incumbent David Morris, a Conservative.
“I want to make a change for the better for the place I live,” he said when speaking to the BBC.  “I believe that I will succeed because of the influence I have over the people from the town.  I should be elected in five years’ time.”
He added: “What about people who are born and bred here?” when turning his attention to immigration.  “We need to build on the foundations we have steadily to make change.  I feel that coming from a travelling background, I am used to politics and arguing.  My opinions on travellers are different to refugees—we are not talking about people coming over from Romania—they are British people.”
Fury also told the BBC that he would like to see Britain withdraw from the EU.
In the meantime, the 27-year-old is waiting on news of a rearranged date for his showdown with Klitschko, who withdrew from their original October 24 date due to a calf injury.  Fury (24-0, 18KOs) believes the Ukrainian is running scared and that he will wrest the title from the consensus number one in the division before trying to become a political heavyweight.

Fury has thought long and hard about the policies he wants to see implemented. In layman's terms, these boil down to making fly tipping legal.

Well, the 'dumb act' worked for Boris Johnson.

David Cameron would back down from PMQ's claiming injury. Everyone ducks the furious one
