Queen guitarist Brian May considering standing as an MP in the next election
Eccentric Queen guitarist Brian May is considering running for parliament, according to his official spokesman.
May, who is currently touring across Europe with his band and singer Adam Lambert, is considering standing out of "frustration at a system that he sees as failing the electorate", his spokesman told BBC News.
Last month May launched his 'Common Decency' project, a political project that he has said will aim "to re-establish common decency in our lives, work and Parliament" and "to get rid of the current goverment". You can watch him introduce the project in a video below.
May's spokesman has said that the guitarist has no specific seat in mind for any potential campaign, however, he owns a wildlife sanctuary at Bere Regis in Dorset, which is part of the Mid Dorset and North Poole constituency, which is currently served by the Liberal Democrat Annette Brooke, who is standing down in May.
Queen are currently enjoying their second major tour with Lambert, who found fame after coming second on American Idol. They released a new album of rarities on in November, which is titled Queen Forever. You can preview it on the right of the page.
